Have you ever wondered why a user behaves the way they do? Psychology plays a crucial role in understanding user behaviors because it helps you understand your users in context. In this presentation Alaina will review perceptual, cognitive, social, and developmental underpinnings of human behavior. Alaina will cover each of these domains and address how they will help you identify underlying perceptual and thought processes of your users, gain further insight into what motivates and drives their behavior, and how those behaviors will change over time. Discover and create a better user experience by understanding the human experience! ---
