Human Factors is a state of mind

As usual at the end of the semester I get students who tell me that they see the world in a whole new way after taking my human factors course. They way I (and many of my colleagues) teach Human Factors really does become a perspective rather than a set of theories or tools to use at work. On the very first day, I tell them that they will not only be better designers, but also better and dealing with friends, relatives, coworkers, and significant others. They don't believe me then, but by week 4 they sure do.

Maybe I should start a religion and become a preacher instead of a teacher???

that is right. i believe the perspectives of human factors are far beyond design something. they force students and designers seriously think over the existing values in today's world and try to find rational values and solution.
