Welcome

Hello. I'm Chris Nodder. Welcome to Persuasive UX, Harnessing Illogical Reactions. In this course, we'll focus on a set of persuasive design patterns that work by appealing to people's emotions. Many persuasive techniques hook into bugs and how our brains are wired, spaces where emotion takes precedence over logic. Just like hackers exploit glitches and so forth to make systems do things they weren't designed for, these behavior patterns can be used persuade people to do things they didn't originally intend to.

In this course, we'll highlight some of these patents and then explain how you can use them to create persuasive products that draw people in and direct them down your preferred path. You'll only understand the value of these persuasive techniques when you see them for yourself, so let's get started.
