Are we not losing the tester as a kind of proxy of the user?

If you push a tester to be more like a programmer, won’t they then think like a programmer, making the same assumptions, and stop thinking of or like the end user?

Dot Graham suggested at the SiGIST event, “The reason to separate them (testers) was to get an independent view, to find the things that other people missed. One of the presentations at EuroSTAR (2013) was a guy from an agile team who found that all of the testers had ‘gone native’ and were no longer finding bugs important to users. They had to find a way to get independence back.”
