Meet & Greet and discuss "Evil By Design"

And we're back!

We'll be having more frequent MeetUps now that I'm back from NYC. Our first one will be a joint "Meet & Greet" and book discussion. Come meet everyone and get re-acquainted with the group.

"Evil By Design" may sound like a UX focused book, but it's actually very interesting from a marketing and business perspective. It does a great job explaining why certain persuasive tactics work by highlighting the psychology principles behind it.

    Just passing along some book titles based on our discussion yesterday. I mentioned a book dealing with the issue of free will and research that argues that much of our behavior is not intentional. The book is by Daniel Wegner and it is called "The Illusion of Conscious Will" (2002). There was some discussion of Kahneman's book about two types of thinking-fast and slow. An excellent book by a very respected psychologist named Timothy Wilson deals with the intuitive or implicit type of thinking and how behavior is affected unconsciously (not like Freud but a modern view of the unconscious). It is called "Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious" (2002). Jenny also mentioned the behavioral economist, Dan Ariely. Another book along these lines is "Freakonomics" by Levitt and Dubner (2005). It is a highly entertaining easy read. I enjoyed meeting everyone yesterday and hope to see you all again. Terry

    I haven't got to make it to a meetup yet. I live in pittsburg so It's a little far, especially on weekdays in the evening. I'm in school at night now, taking psych tech courses. Hopefully this group can do something on a saturday
