comment What cues can I use to nudge users away from setting extreme values on a slider?
That's also similar to some physical behaviours, for example a hot water shower handle that sticks in a notch or is actually blocked by a pin at a certain temperature and if you want to go further you have to also push a little button in while turning the handle so as to get the hotter water.

That I haven't tested but I believe it could work with a simple well thought out design and clean but clear visual cues.

comment Human Centered Design vs. User Centered Design
There's almost certainly whole different fields of design and development that this answer is touching on and I'm almost certainly using the wrong terminology for some of this :)

comment Human Centered Design vs. User Centered Design
I would make the distinction between there being (or not being) something you could definitively call a touchpoint between the system and a person where the person has a conscious awareness of the interaction. As always things are never always black or white and the middle ground may be more vague. You might design a building or a park or a city for people with social and environmental factors in mind, but the people who live or work there aren't users exactly - they're just - well - being! Also - maybe it depends on scale of interaction - micro and macro interactions if you like.

It's interesting to know that there is this level of control and fine tuning - and that it's not just about 404.
