Testing is a state of mind

“If our goal is to show the absence of errors, we will find very few of them”

 

“If our goal is to show the presence of errors, we will discover a large number of them”

I absolutely agree with the fact that "If our goal is to show the presence of errors, we will discover a large number of them"

Intention of banging the software is the best way of software testing.

I agree with the Statement "Testing is a state of mind" , but it doesn't mean that testers are Destructive unlike developers who are Constructive !!

Testers Test the software, just to make sure that it comes out with minimal number of errors, and hence in the process they have to work with the intention of finding errors.

cheers testing

You are absouletly right,
"Clever person try to solve the problem but
wise person avoids it."
More importantly tester should be a pesimistic.
