For Visual Attention, are there any Tendencies in Form Interpretation?
Keywords:Visual Perception, User Interface, Preferences, Attention, Bias, Information Science
We examined if there is any intrinsically "hard-wired" tendency in the subject's Visual Attention. When asked to spontaneously decide preferences for shape or grouping of shapes, distinct patterns of preference in human test subjects were found. These preferences were consistent among ages older than 20 years adulthood and both genders. These findings could result in broad practical applications ranging from interface designs to visual alerts.
