comment Going from Development into QA?
+1 Thanks. I should clarify: taking responsibility is only really an issue for me in the context of directly working on something and creating it (making direct changes to the concrete object of the work) myself. It doesn't come up when the work consists of analyzing something from a step back. I suppose part of this is confidence: I'm just much better at stepping back and seeing details than seeing them when I'm buried in them - and being good at something equals being more confident to take charge of it. By no means is this a totally generalized issue of not wanting responsibility.

+1 Thanks. I'm definitely not phased about the salary and prestige aspects, but I can see what you mean about the taking responsibility issue. I should note though: this one is massively magnified by being the actual front-line creator of something (rather than an analyser who is a step removed).
