1. Software Testing is a Mundane, No-Brainer Job
Ohh, yeah? On second thoughts, perhaps there is some element of truth to that statement. Testing can indeed be boring and feel like a mundane monotonous task if YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG! I've seen people jump to this conclusion (that testing is boring) because they see (and believe) testing as 'repeatedly' doing same/similar tasks over and over again.
2. A Tester Should Be Able To Test Everything
Yes, as a tester I can of course test everything provided as a project stakeholder you can provide me with indefinite supply of resources, infrastructure, budget, time and what-not!
3. A Tester's Job is to Find Bugs
I don't blame you if you don't see how this is a myth or misconception -- many don't. It is easy, especial for someone who has just recently started her career as a software tester, to get confused about her responsibilities as a tester. And many often fall into the trap of believing that finding lot of bugs in the software is their prime goal.
4. Testers Add No Value to The Software
People who conceive this myth often are made to believe that a tester’s role is strictly limited and adds no value to the product.
5. Test Automation Will Eliminate Human Testers:
This is perhaps the most outrageous prediction that many so called self-proclaimed test automation gurus are making at the moment. What is even more insane is the fact that there are actually testers who are believing it!
