On Personality in Computer Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction

„The individual’s interaction with media – like computers, television and other media – is fundamentally social and fundamentally natural“

Additionally, I’d like to add another quote from their book “The media equation”, which I find is an important one:

„Personality can creep in everywhere – the language in error messages, user prompts, methods for navigating options and even choices of type font and layout. Even if the design domain is a twelve-character LCD panel, personality is relevant.“
