2. Cognitive Disonance by Patricio Maller - in Spanish
Cognitive dissonance is the mental stress or discomfort we feel when our behavior is inconsistent with our beliefs. Humans strive for their behavior and beliefs to be consistent, so when inconsistency (dissonance) arises, we do everything we can to restore balance, either by changing our behavior or belief, or by somehow justifying the behavior.
This theory, however, is frequently misused as an “eliminate or reduce cognitive dissonance” mantra that does not lead to a better design, and keeping users learning and engaged. In this talk, we will illustrate how products can be designed for dissonance and resonance, using actual examples, and elaborate on the nuances of this theory applied to the design of products and experiences.
Patricio Maller holds a Computer Science degree and a Master of Science in Computer Sciences (2000) with focus on human-computer interaction. He was a Fulbright Scholar at The University of Alabama between 1998 and 2000, completing research on the application of socio-cognitive theories to the acceptance of IT technology. Patricio is a UX leader at Intel Security, working since 2006 at the Argentina Software Design Center (ASDC). He also worked at Motorola, and the educational initiative educ.ar. Patricio has authored many articles in Agile and UX, and is currently a professor of Creativity and Innovation at CUP Cordoba.
