Loads of background, research, psychology and good advice on using icons.
Great job Matthew Standage.
There is some proper science going on here.
Results revealed that selfies were indeed evaluated more negatively than photos taken by others. Persons in selfies were rated as less trustworthy, less socially attractive, less open to new experiences, more narcissistic and more extroverted than the same persons in photos taken by others.
Quick, remove that selfie from your Twitter and LinkedIn.
A great piece on the myths of neuroscience.
Some people learn best by doing, right? Others have a visual memory, and it’s important for them to see something depicted if they want to…
A practical, hands on way to understand how the human brain works and apply that knowledge to User Experience and product design. Learn the psychological principles behind how our brain makes sense of the world and apply that to product and user interface design.
I am a trained, experienced teacher so expect to be sketching, designing and applying the psychology from the very start.

Scary stuff, are we really that gullible?

A graph showing the time of the day (bottom) against the likelihood of parole being given by a judge. It’s quite telling and it’s really easy to spot lunch.
