I think you’re probably right. You really point to the deeper point of this article. A lack of trust in designers.

I find that designers are constantly explaining themselves and defending decisions whereas I don’t see as much of this in engineering.

Obviously anecdotal.

I guess what I’m saying is, design is often an opinion, and I think designers are paid to have good opinions on the design.

I can go and look up gestalt principles over and over to defend OR the PMs can trust that I can do my job and we move on. One of those options is quicker.

There’s a lot of different situations that may call for different approaches and I do appreciate your points!
