  • Yes now that I look at it I can see that the rope is obscured. I may change the position of the text.

    I also chose this photo to show that people express dissatisfaction in different ways. Some expressions are verbal, while some are purely physical. When you do these kinds of inquiries, it's important not only to pay attention to what people say, but what they do with their bodies. This is especially important when you're dealing with children, with people for whom English isn't their first language, or with people who come into the session thinking that the observer only wants to hear the good stuff about their product. The non-verbal cues are so important that I recommend people bring a videographer or a photographer along, because the camera will catch things that your ears can't.

  • Ahhhh. I didn’t see the rope (it’s mostly covered by your copy) but I get it now :-). Thanks! EDIT: I also read their faces as bored or tired rather than upset but that might just be the guy with his head down in the middle dominating my field of vision.

  • They're behind a rope, in a tight space. They're also pretty disgruntled, if you can read the looks on their faces. I chose it to demonstrate how physical limitations (the rope) can lead to dissatisfaction.

  • The relationship between the picture and the statement on slide 5 aren’t clear to me. Is it meant to show physical limitation? User satisfaction? Both? (by the by, this is Jason Toney -- this facebook connect integration could be better)
