Does Domain Change the Opinion of Individuals on Human Values? A Preliminary Investigation on eHealth Apps End-users
The elicitation of end-users human values – such as freedom, honesty, transparency – is important in the development of software systems.
In this project, we carried out two preliminary Q-studies to understand:
- the general human value opinion types of eHealth app end users
- the eHealth domain human value opinion types of eHealth app end users
- whether there are differences between the general and eHealth domain opinion types.
Our initial results revealed three value opinion types using generic value instruments:
- fun-loving, success-driven and independent end user
- security-conscious, socially concerned and success-driven end user
- benevolent, success-driven and conformist end user
We also identified two value opinion types using domain-specific value instruments: security-conscious, reputable and honest end-user, and success-driven, reputable and pain-avoiding end user.
Given these results, consideration should be given to domain context in the design and application of values elicitation instruments.
