What, if any books / blogs or white papers are there for pyschology with UX?

Mainly books that deal with principles such as scaricity, framing, authority & salience.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Sorry, but questions requesting recommendations for books / papers / software / etc. would fall into the shopping request category and aren't really suitable to a Q&A website. The reason for this is that there is no one correct answer, and such recommended items would soon be updated and replaced with newer / better versions making the best answers redundant. Therefore you're better off visiting our Chat site for such discussions, they're not really suitable for this main site I'm afraid. – JonW Aug 31 '13 at 12:13

I can recommend 2 books:

  • Seductive Interaction Design - There's quite a few good psychology related concepts presented there, directly related to interaction design.
  • Universal Principles of Design - while not all entries are directly related to interaction psychology, it presents many concepts that do apply either directly or indirectly.
