Quite a lot of testers miss out on the required mindset for testing. Sometimes it seems that quality consciousness is missing. Little wonder why some testers only find obvious bugs and why quality is far-fetched from the device under test (DUT) despite the presence of testers on the project.

I will give examples of different mindset tools and how I have used them to become a better tester. A few of these Mindset Tools are: User Mindset Tool, “Already Tested” Mindset Tool, Confidence Mindset Tool, Trust Mindset Tool, Courage Mindset Tool, Communicator Mindset Tool, Lazy Tester's Mindset Tool, Analytical Mindset Tool, Bug Finder Mindset Tool, Curiosity Mindset Tool, “Bug Conviction “Mindset Tool, “Business” Mindset Tool, “Dog Style” Mindset Tool, “Cat Style Mindset Tool.
