During an interview:

“So what prototyping tools do you use?”

You (answering): “Blah, blah and blah.”

You (thinking): “the bleeding heart and artist.”

11

Accepting the fact that all your past works are literally crap, what you’re doing now is meh, and you’ll do better.

10

When it’s a success: blaming the status quo while hiding behind the curtain.

When it’s a failure: ‘It would have been worse if I hadn’t done it.’

9

Secretly admitting to be the asshole who always questions other people’s judgement and reasoning.

8

Feeling the urge to explain Gettier problem to your clients whenever they insist they know exactly what their problem is.

7

Asking what do you mean by “work” when someone tells you that driverless car doesn’t work at all ‘cos he tried it.

6

The intersection of “sacrificing #usability for early buy-in wow factor” and “being honest” is “are you kidding me?”

5

How your family members eventually give up the struggle to understand what exactly you do as a blah designer.

4

Feeling the urge to point out for your non-designer relative that he really doesn’t need to double-tap a link button.

3

“So what do you do?”

“I’m a [buzzword] designer.”

“Sounds interesting! So what do you do?”

“… (awkwardly sips the tea/coffee)”

2

“Hi buddy can you help me beautify my presentation?”

“No problem!” (mind-burning the idiot who doesn’t tell stories)

1

Barely use any advanced features of prototyping tools either bc you don’t have the time or bc you are the developer.
