What Is Tester’s Source of Inspiration?

No one can work non-stop all the time. It is impossible to be effective when the employer is squeezed like a lemon. That is why it is required to have a rest and find new sources of motivation and inspiration.

If a product is too complex and complicated, a specialist expends a lot of energy in performing functional testing, usability checking or security control. What helps a tester to work effectively is his creativity and unusual way of thinking. These characteristics promote the bigger test coverage and usage of new techniques and methods.

But usually every project has some time restrictions, and it influences negatively on the tester’s creativity. Moreover, even the most excellent ideas suggested too late are useless. That is why it is very important to be able to concentrate on game testing, app testing, web testing or mobile testing and generate new unusual methods and tactics.

If there are no ideas for software product testing, then a specialist should have a small break and find a new source of inspiration.

How Can a Tester Find the Inspiration?

  • A QA specialist may relax and have a cup of tea or coffee.
  • The walk to park, garden or just along the street may also help to relax.
  • The simplest way is to look through the window and try not to find about anything.
  • A specialist may read the article not connected with testing and IT at all. It will help to divert the tester’s attention.

A small break will help to look at the system from the other point of view, and as a result, the tester will finish the checking procedure faster and more effective.
