Quotes

"It is a duty of machines and those who design them to understand people. It is not our [people’s] duty to understand the arbitrary, meaningless dictates of machines. (...) We have to accept human behaviour the way it is, not the way we would wish it to be."
- Donald Norman

"A brilliant solution to the wrong problem can be worse than no solution at all: solve the correct problem."
- Donald Norman

"A mental model represents a person’s thought process for how something works (i.e., a person’s understanding of the surrounding world). (...) They help shape actions and behavior, influence what people pay attention to in complicated situations, and define how people approach and solve problems."
- Susan Weinschenk

"Friction happens when there is a mismatch between users’ mental models and the systems’ design."
- Mariana Morris
