Misconceptions of the lone QA

Throughout my career as a quality assurance engineer (QA), I can honestly say that I have pretty much come across most of the misconceptions and myths that circle the industry! Most likely originate from people without experience in testing. Some are laughable but can be damaging, leading to miscommunication and, worst of all, blame! Software testing/QA is an art in itself and takes skilled people to carry out QA to a high standard.
