The mind is its own place, and in itself, can make a heaven a hell, a hell of heaven” quoted John Milton and the above quote stands perfect for software testing professionals and their mind. This article briefs about a tester's mind set and his approach while he is at work.



Tester's mind A good quality of a tester is to approach things with negative attitude from end user perspectives which will help them to locate the error. This is because, developers and designers create coding with optimistic assumptions thinking what they do is right. Tester should never remain reluctant as even a small bug is capable of crashing the entire system.



Pedantic, Skeptical & Nitpicker Pedantic, skeptical, complainant, are the most annoying character of a normal human hates to posses. But when it comes to a testing profession these becomes a must hold character for a tester. Sometimes this attitude can bring conflict with developers and designers but this will illuminate the darker side of their product.



Being impartial, advisory, constructive to developers Human tendency is to make errors it can be reduced but cannot be avoided at any circumstances. When it comes to software development there are loads of chances to go wrong. As testers, he does his job by fixing the bug; rather he is not acting partial to the developer who developed it. In this way he becomes a mentor both personally and professionally to the developers and helps him to grow error less.
