Empathy: Is the ability to understand the feelings of another
My empathy map illustrates the “say-do-think-feel” of my personas, providing insight into their cognitive experience and their behavior and emotional needs. James M. Patell of the D.School says of empathy in user centered design: “We must fill in two blanks: Our users need a better way to ___ BECAUSE ___. The because portion is a big deal”*
“I like to fiddle with things; keep my hands busy“
Fidgets and investigates. Very tactile.
Poppy is very expressive; she emotes vibrantly”
Monkey mind: lots of passionate thoughts
I feel overwhelmed, easily, causing more fidgeting
Flooded with ideas, thoughts
