You're a usability-obsessed User Experience Designer with deep UCD skills and you feed continuously on UX community best-practices. You quote Don Norman in your sleep, and you’ve seen Alan Cooper give a keynote at least once. You have enough technical UI chops that you can stuff done without generating lots of unnecessary design artifacts. You’re hungry for real career growth opportunities, and are ready to put the work in to get where you want to go. You are pragmatic and evidence-based in your work. To be happy, you are driven to interact with, listen to, and learn from your users and your peers. You trust your instincts, take pride in your work, hold defensible points-of-view - but you know that hard data trumps opinion every time. You just have to work in a collaborative, iterative, lean, user-centered design team.
