Where could we search for related literature? Cognitive Psychology?

comment What 5 things must I do to become a well-rounded, progressive UX Designer in my career?
"Wondering" is a good point to start. And analysing design from this perspective makes perfect sense: we need to see the "thing" as if we saw it the first time, in order to come closer to the original designer's decision-making process.

comment Self Service Checkouts
Maybe the real answer is: the engineer got conflicting requirement analysis. "We need to trust the user, but control him anyway", is a bad starting assumption.

@SchroedingersCat Could you please add a photo or some other context? Or is your question more a usability-process-related one?

comment Traffic lights: why yellow before green?
Traffic lights (in Germany, anyway) have an phase were all lights are red, as to reduce this security risk. The duration of this phase depends on the size of the intersection, because it's at least "the time time to leave the intersection when entering it at the moment the light turned red". So the additional Red-Yellow gives some security margin, actually.

comment How to leverage team effects in HCI?
Very interesting comments about why you prefer not to answer the question :-) As far as I understood ANT, it doesn't distinguish humans and tech-agents, they both are "actants". And both can behave as "intermediary" or "mediator", depending on whether they are (assumed to be) fully describable or indeterministic. Of course you are right, Computers are not human. But, Nass claims, we treat them as such (subconciously). "My beloved hammer", "He served me well", "He is faithful to me" and so on. Good points about UX and Usability!
