I asked my self this question based on this answer to the question about elevator-button affordance issues: Users in a hurry or hectic mood are willing to press any kind of elevator-button to prevent (or force) the door to stay open (or shut). I'm not looking for a tweak how to handle this specific problem. I wan't to generalize an issue.
To know how to interact with a system takes a moment of patience to pick up and learn how the system (or parts of it) work. It is our job to make this as simple and straight forward as possible. But going a step further and making the user enhance his expertise and letting him experience that, would increase the UX of the product.
Hence my question. Is it our job as UX/UI Designers to gently force the users we are designing for to slow down in specific situations? Is this possible especially for micro-tasks (excluding complex procedures in software with help, intro and how-to features)?
Or is this a very personal (lifestyle) decision users must make for their own while we provide straight-forward products "only"?
