Should Interaction Design control/influence user behavior?


Since behavior is the name of the game for us, how much influence do you
think we should have on it? Is it simply something we should re-enforce, or
are we allowed to take it a step farther and introduce new behaviors? This
has been a question that has been rolling around in my head ever since I was
introduced to Interaction Design and User Experience.

Some claim there is an ethical issue that arises any time someone tries to
influence another with or without their consent.

Really, You Should All Just Shut Up

and read

Designing for People by Henry Dreyfuss.

And relish at how it was pretty much all figured out about 50 years ago
(well, written about then... I'm sure he was practicing as such long
before then). Process, terminology, skills, etc. etc.

I've been (slowly) writing my thoughts on it on my site

interesting read: Foundations of Interaction Design

There's some intereting blog from David Malouf:
Foundations of Interaction

I really doubt, the elements the David memtioned here, compose the
foundation of interaction design ( who has succeed done this ? :) ), but
it's a interesting (or a bit abstract ?) reading.

How could we deepen the understanding of ixd by these elements?
for e.g., the best elements i every read is from cooper's book, (Persona)
Goal, Senario, etc.

Re: [IxDA] What questions to ask for a persona interview?

If shadowing isn't viable (but since you already have an interview lined up) you might want to consider a cognitive interview approach as well. While the most formal implementations of this tradition rely on having the subject actually execute the task, you can still deploy it to good effect by focusing your protocol on the tasks they need to engage within the setting where they would use the app. It's basically the sort of approach that goes into building user stories, except developing an interview protocol to draw out real data to hang your narrative on.
