When trying to define what makes a good tester, a number of characteristics often come out: ability to learn quickly, attention to detail, resolve. I’m sure you could come up with more.
Which made me think; there must be lots of people out there who are slogging away at their job even though they were born to be a tester. They make a perfect match for the software tester role but somehow destiny has gone against them. Poor little souls.
Have you seen any of these people recently? Have you spotted a “should have been a tester” type person?
