Check out this article from Whitney Hess over the points you should be looking for when hiring a user experience designer.

  • Goal: Intel Over Instinct
  • Knowledge: Principles Over Rules
  • Attitude: Flexibility Over Formality
  • Behavior: Assimilates Over Alienates
  • Motivation: Empathy Over Ego
