Abstract or Summary
  • The term "Intuitive use" has become a common phrase to describe interfaces and products, however it is rarely defined. Research regarding intuitive use is in its infancy, beginning primarily in 2003. With the development of new terms in Human Factors and Human-Computer Interaction, it is important for Designers and Users to clearly understand their definitions and how those definitions impact design requirements. The three research questions were as follows. (1) Is there a significant gap between Users’ and Designers' definitions of intuitive use? (2) Do their definitions agree with the literature definition? (3) Can they distinguish the attributes separating intuitive use from usability? A survey was conducted of 134 participants (41 Users and 93 Designers). The results showed no significant difference between Users' and Designers' perceptions of the attributes that comprise intuitive use (Subconscious use, Effective results, Prior Knowledge, Low mental effort, and Satisfying results). Users and Designers strongly agreed (between 4-5 on a 5 point Likert scale) with the literature for the attributes Effective Results, Prior Knowledge, and Low mental effort. Users and Designers had a moderate level of agreement (between 3-4 on a 5 point Likert scale) for the attributes Subconscious and Satisfying results. Lastly, Users and Designers had a strong level of agreement for the attribute Cost ($), inferring they do not associate this attribute with intuitive use. Users and Designer had a moderate level of agreement for the attributes Users' Physical Effort and Time, inferring they do not associate these attributes with intuitive use. The results were discussed and recommendations were given for researchers and Designers.
