7. Interestingly, usability researchers have demonstrated that users initially judge attractive interfaces to be more usable, and that this belief often persists long after a user has gained sufficient experience with an interface to have direct evidence to the contrary.9 Perhaps the reason for this is that users, encouraged by perceived ease of use, make a greater effort to learn what may be a challenging interface and are then unwilling to consider their investment ill spent.
用户一开始通常会认为吸引人的界面会更可用,用户的这种观点将持续很长时间,直到对该产品界面积累了足够的经验后才会推翻他们一开始的观点9。 产生这种现象的原因,有可能是用户被表面看起来的易用所鼓舞,因此花费很多精力学习本来可能很难用的界面,而并不心甘情愿地思考他们的投资是错误的。
