What are you current challenges?
I am already started to read UX related books/blogs etc., started reviewing my company's existing applications and learning tools like Axure. Need to make sure am i going in a right path.. ?? is these things are enough to go and ask my manager to change my role to UX..
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
Before i start reading the Don Norman's "The design of everyday things", i was thinking that UX is just like a beatification stuff which is applicable only in web pages. But after completing one or two pages, i found i was wrong. I am basically use to comment/review on real time objects like road traffic system, Interior design, taps in restrooms, sign boards etc.., and try to define a solution for some of those. So after reading few pages of the book, i realized this is my dream role, And i will love what i do, that is something missed with my current role. And also i don't want to stop my creative thinking in only on the web applications. Basically very much interested to think through and spend time in analysis..
Cats or dogs?
Over all i would like to appreciate this story writing idea. which helps me to find the similarities of UX ppl and also helps me to justify myswlf in UX skills.
