What I meant by my question was is user experience a stand alone job position, or is it a technical or artistic position that uses some principles of user experience design?
I feel like sometimes these jobs are asking for web developers and designers, which makes me wonder if user experience design is a real skill or job, or is it just a supplement to applied web design or other technical areas? I want to be a user experience designer, but I don't want to be a web developer. I understand the issues that come along with that statement, because since the web is a technology with the biggest audience and experience has to be designed for it, which is why you need web skills.
Also there doesn't seem to be true user experience jobs even with creating devices. This seems to be the discipline of industrial design which uses user experience. This leads me to believe that user experience is not a real field, but is used within disciplines.
What jobs can I do if I want to get into more of the psychology of user experience, instead of the technical, or artistic design?
