Who is your top 4?

Or top 6?

As I sat listening to today’s UX talk, I wondered who they were.

It’s easy to answer why I do what I do. Why user experience? they may ask. Because I am fascinated with people, I say.

But realistically, it’s because I want to learn more about myself. I want to know why I am the way I am. And there’s hope inside me…that by other understanding others, I can understand myself.

I glanced around the room when the speaker made the conclusion. There are 4 people that are close to you. Sometimes 6, but usually 4. There are usually 4 that you participate with the most on Facebook…each day.

Is it your spouse? Your sibling? Your roommate? Someone you consider your best friend? A classmate? A neighbor? A coworker?

And most importantly, is it mutual?
