Curiosity

Written by Guido Jansen in
November 2010

Theory:
When we are presented with an interesting piece of information, we want to know more! 

Application:

Curiosity is an important motivator of our behavior. It's important for the discovery, development and improvement of ourselves and the world around us. As a webshop owner you can trigger this in several ways. You can present your visitors with interesting information, give a demo, show how the lives of others was greatly improved by your product or let people actually use (a tuned down version of) your product. The key is to tease people to give them just enough to want more!

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that. Recorded live with audience pre-covid-19 at the Conversion Hotel conference in november 2019 on the island of Texel in The Netherlands. (oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd op https://www.cro.cafe/)
