comment What makes a user want to engage heavily into the application?
"when there are multiple competitors on the market with the same function(s)" Nowadays, there are always others in the market with same functions. Or after two months they have same functions. Form aka usability is a must-have as well as functionality.

comment Is UX design with the intent to change user behaviour without their permission ethical?
@MichaelLai Reading this experiment result in Wiki "Ordinary people, simply doing their jobs, and without any particular hostility on their part, can become agents in a terrible destructive process. Moreover, even when the destructive effects of their work become patently clear, and they are asked to carry out actions incompatible with fundamental standards of morality, relatively few people have the resources needed to resist authority" And change "authority" to "system" shows the ethical dilemma of UX.

@MichaelLai "For example, you might want to put things in their wishlist if they have been looking at it for a while or multiple times". May be you compare it to physical situations, it often makes it easier to understand. You are shopping in a store. Do you want someone to stealthy add an item onto your wishlist because you looking at it for a while? No! But you would be happy if, the cashier would give you a 3day-voucher for this item. So you can decide for yourselfif you want it or not.

@MichelLai: Do you know the Milgram Experiment in the 1960? They told participants to torture people with electroshocks. But it is for the good! The science. The result was scary! Most people tortured others even seeing them crying: But they told them! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

@MichaelLai Okay, do you understand the gamification concept by reading this SE tour - introducing bounties, scores, etc?ux.stackexchange.com/tour I think: people wont read it, because it is too text-heavy. People wont understand the underlying concept.You can't get out of responsibility because "you told them you will nudge them"

The questions was about designing something and take responsibility for a solution/ decision or not? You are argueing: No, just test it with the user. If it is good fine if not change it. But, but, but: How are you deciding for your proposed solution you are testing? What morale objectives are you considering? If any at all? Would you sell weapons to children? Would you sell a birth control pill online? Why and why not? That is the question? Not to test or not? How are you deciding for a designed solution?

In this case you should rewrite your example for a better usability.

@Mike Anyway, it can be useful to have this trick in one's toolbox. In case of a hard or costly solution for a need.

comment Good way to help the user remembering the password strategy
@goto 4)It is a variant of the forget password process, but without reseting the password. Usually you get an email with a temporary login-key for re-setting your password. Give them just the temporary login-key and let them not re-set their password! 3)Sure, otherwise you don't know if your password or/and the mail address is the incorrect part. Giving hints which one is valid reduces the login effort.

You wrote: "He added a few points...", "make artificial horses", "Let's make smaller trains!", "oil engines are a lot more practical than coal engines". If one adds it, it is a car, don't it? Ford didn't added this - he invented the so called fordism en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fordism
