Here’s how to tell if you really liked the show – will you tune in for the next episode? I know what you’re thinking: “If I watch the next episode of Lost , they must answer all the questions I had in the last one.” Hahaha.
This is a Blue Dot behavior, but it will eventually become a Blue Span or even a Blue Path behavior. More on this later.
Motivation : Varies
This depends on how much you liked the show the first time you watched it.
Ability : Medium
You watched it once, you can watch it again
Trigger : ?
In Lost , curiosity to see what happens next might encourage you to watch the next episode. Hopefully something about the show makes you anticipate seeing it.
After watching a show for the first time (Step 4) and deciding you want to keep watching it (Step 5), you enter into a new viewing cycle.
This cycle consists of watching more episodes, and evaluating whether or not to continue watching the show.
As you watch more episodes, the Blue Dot behavior of step 6 becomes a Blue Span behavior – that is, you watch the show regularly for a set period of time (e.g., a season). This behavior can become a Blue Path behavior if you continue to watch the show season after season.
As step 6 becomes a Blue Span behavior, step 7 becomes less and less necessary. You no longer need to evaluate the show; your habit has formed.
