SlideShare’s “Seductive Interactions: An Art & Science” is an engaging presentation on design strategy. Of the 175 clicks I found click 85, most valuable – its title: What Do We Know About People?
|they listed||my ux take|
|We’re curious||Don’t list features and functions, let users discover them|
|We’re also afraid of change||Forecast changes and promote upcoming redesigns|
|We seek patterns||Be predictable, have consistency in menu, headers, colors, etc.|
|We like to order and organize things||Sort options, customize pages, Flickr Organizr|
|We’re intensely self centered||Tell a friend, favorites, iLike, StumbleUpon|
|We’re lazy||175 click slides are manageable w/a jump feature|
|We’re visual thinkers and learners||Thus SlideShare and demo video popularity|
|We like to be the hero of the story||We promote our thoughts and actions (blog, tweet) more than others|
|We don’t like to make choices, but we like choice||We are entice by Chrome’s market growth, but we just can’t leave FireFox|
|We like to be in control (and to be guided)||Allowing users to choose when to upgrade and provide demos|
|We find novelty and surprise interesting||New features and functions keep us coming back for more|
|and so on||We can generalize about people/users, but should always seek their feedback and act on it|
Thanks for reading my hero story. Here is the Seductive Interactions show, for more novelty and surprises.
