   0.1 Why do we do this?

Black Box Testing views the entire application as a black box - focusing on inputs and outputs rather than internal lines of code. The tester avoids influence from the developer and actually tries every sort of (not necessarily logical) input they can think of to see what will happen.

Why do we do this?

Without realizing it, the developer may lead the tester toward testing functions they know will work well, based on the way that the developer tested it. The idea is to eliminate the developer's biases about the application they created. That way you pick up errors that would otherwise be found by users once the application is in production.
