Well, I’m sorry, but I don’t see your point.
Maxime Lefevre

I think there is perhaps something getting lost in translation here — I agree with you, personas are archetypal users that a creative team uses to further hone their understanding of their users, via the creation and use of personas. What I am trying to say is twofold: my original point is that by using a photo in personas we are automatically biasing our feelings and conclusions about that persona, and if we get rid of photos and include diverse abilities, these diverse abilities can help to bring the personas to life in a way that may be lacking when we remove the photos.

My last comment to you was in response to what I perceived as a misunderstanding of my words — the personas are being used by people who are very unlike the users so they do need these personas to humanize their users — I just think we’re humanizing in a biased way and was suggesting an alternative.
