R11: The Red Button - CLOSED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this talk, I will tell the story of the red button. This is a humorous, emotional and investigative story detailing a true experience that I had of a red button that was next to a mains socket on the wall behind the TV in a flat in Shanghai. It tore me to pieces trying to figure out what the button was for. But yet, my fiancee was not curious in the slightest about it. How could we both have such different curiosity levels? Is it because I am a tester? Or is it in my genes? I plan to share the emotions that I experienced and the lessons I learned from this experience. I'll also discuss the traits of a tester and I'll raise the question on whether curiosity and inquisitiveness is actually a gene that we possess. And I'll bring some compelling evidence to suggest why I believe that this may be the case through the DRD4 gene - a gene which apparently dictates our curiosity levels...
