Use case demonstration – Non-conscious designs for behavioral change

New knowledge from Cognitive Neuroscience, Behavioral Economics and Design is fundamentally changing our ability to change human behavior. The understanding that human decision making is primarily a non-conscious process, driven by emotions and heuristics, has led to new research and design tools to explain and influence human behavior.

Non-Conscious Design seeks to develop subtle interventions based on deep understanding of the role of emotions, heuristics and context on decision making to shape human behavior. These design interventions have been highly impactful in influencing human behavior for Financial Services, Health Care & Safety, and other industries.

Key takeaways

  • Learn how non-conscious processes influence buyer emotions and behaviors
  • Gain practical insights from examples of non-conscious design interventions
  • Understand how to design interventions that drive behaviors
