As a UX Researcher at a product company with a background in human factors psychology, I can’t back this enough. There are plenty of things you are missing by solely relying on usability testing. It’s evaluative, which is great when you need that, but when you aren’t researching people to see how the product fits in their lives before making something, then you’re running off of a lot of assumptions that will likely be untrue.
