According to my opinion Development job is a great job but Testing job is a Divine job. For every project or product before releasing we have to do the testing becoz it will more helpful to the customers.Before testing if we release the product in the market it will harmful to the company as well as the customers

Both are great in their respective ways but i usually think being a testing engineer requires more skill to handle different situations.They should have the ability to say no to others with valid reason and it requires knowledge as well as guts to face others which usually developers don't do.It is vast and it pushes you to think a situation from different point of view and find out the best among them to mark the product unique in the market.

According to my opinion , Testing is the backbone for the software industry. Because, every s/w product release is done after testing only.

By doing testing itself we can judge that the product is free of defects/bugs, and also for the customers satisfaction.

"Prevention is better than cure" i.e if we remove bugs before released we get less maintenance cost for company

Providing a quality product to end customer makes me proud and happy. Acting as an end user, its a privilege and test engineer get paid when you test it. Ex: Someone does brewing and they asking us to taste it then give feedback. So its joy not a worry.

I want to help people, i want to see people happy, i want to make people life more easier and comfortable with quality product. I want see smile on people face.And i believe it must come if they use quality product with high performance and more security. So as am from technical bg i can help the society by providing quality products and solving their problems through technology.

Because I would like to know a software from end to end rather than knowing a small component of it.

I would like to put myself into the shoes of end user to feel the product. I would like to make the product deliverable which is possible after testing.

I saw all the comments. Here all are taking about difference between testing and development. but question is why did you choose software testing.

In interview,from this question ,they are expecting two things from you.
1. Passion.
2. Reason of Passion.

Here I Would Like to Share My Idea.

Why I am Interested in Testing,

As per my opinion, I like to do testing like solving a logical puzzle,where are the bugs hiding?
I like figuring out what`s important and what`s irrelevant.
Testing is about challenges as well as joy.It is my passion so...When I am doing Testing I will not get bored(or) tired.

And one more reason is ,Testing is very important part of software industry. You cannot take it out. So this field will not fade away.

In my point of view, giving a true answer is best because they will understand your fake answer about "making customer happy makes me happy" .. so make it simple use your true point of view .. it will be very beneficial for you.
