Much like Olaf Meys above, I’ve done a great many things from Adventure Guide (camping, white water rafting, etc.) to Teaching. In the software development world I’ve been a QA, BA, and Tech Writer.
Right out of college I worked in customer support for a motorhome manufacturer. If we could walk customers through an easy fix, we would. If not, we’d help schedule them at a dealership for repair.
Concurrently with my QA roll, I am also a Pastor. How both roles play into testing is a focus on the person - how best to help the “customer”. A lot is paying attention to what is said, and reading between the lines to see the pitfalls. If issues can’t be prevented, knowing the right kinds of questions to ask (or Tests to run) to diagnose the underlying issue and help resolve it.
