    These information is spread around the web in several websites but is always good to have them in hand and with minimal design :)


    Just one little thing mentioned below

    The item "Commitment Consistency > Pop-ups with Yes/No questions" mentions the tatics of making our users look like fools, in my opinion this is not a great UX practice so maybe I would't put it on the list. I dont this this practice is good for UX.

    "...say “yes” to leave your email address in a second step to get a freebie, or be foolish and choose “no.”

    good for both offence and defence: use these hacks for your product but keep them in mind when you're considering another product


    you can get too drunk on power! :))

    It saddens me that so few people utilize psychology to grow their products and ideas, and even less so use it to guard against being manipulated. This is a good starting point into the field geared towards online products

Great resource. Another gem for product designers is Wikipedia's list of cognitive biases.

Hey Daniel, <3 this project. Are you taking any guest authors? Also, have you considered exploring the application of Flow Theory by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and its application in HCI?

@sidhant_bhavnani Thanks, Sidhant! Hit me up on Twitter if you're interested in becoming a guest writer. I've heard about the Flow theory but not in the context of the digital realm. Thanks for the suggestion!
