Since the first EQ Red Flags episode, several other red flags have come to mind. This episode addresses another 11+ EQ red flags that foster problems within the UX discipline — things we need to make sure we're not practicing, things we should recognize when they're occuring (towards self and others), and things we need to learn how to manage. When we do this, we make the discipline of UX a better place.
