  • Easiest metaphor to understand autonomy is choose your own adventure
  • Another way to create a sense of ability or competence is through normative feedback—what others like you are doing. Opower launched a normative feedback program for energy consumption. People participating in the program got a neighborhood report showing how much energy others in the area were using. People who participated ended up using significantly less energy than people who didn’t get the comparison report—about 1.4-3.3% less per measurement period. That may not seem like a lot for any one individual, but when you think about the energy savings across a neighborhood or city, it starts to really add up. We also use normative feedback a lot with health related behaviors. For example, did you know that most people who successfully quit smoking have failed about 7 times before? Use of positive/hopeful feedback vs. unrealistic or lofty feedback
  • Feedback on performance builds competence
  • The granularity of feedback also matters. Ideally, you want to give a few levels of feedback. Here in Guitar Hero, you see both feedback on each individual action, and cumulative feedback on overall performance over the course of the game
  • Used in Europe to reduce messes in men’s restrooms
  • Kip Williams
  • Amazon—recommends products both based on what you purchased, and on what people like you have bought
  • Design needs to respond to users, too. When a user does something with the mouse, the site should respond to that.
