About 2 years ago, I asked about a good usability/UX elevator pitch, so I can quickly explain what UX is whenever I need.
But, to this date, I still can't get over one little issue: lots of people I've met still think that UX work can be done by any experienced web user (or by a web designer), and that whatever I say is subjective. On the other hand, developers for example tend to not get this treatment because people assume that they're the experts, and that they must know what they're talking about, whatever it is they say.
This is especially true when I'm trying to advise a team or an individual in a setting where I have no time to back-up what I say with data.
So, from your experience, how do you get this idea over to others?
