Surprise as the Inconsistency of FBS Variables in Evaluators' Interpretation?

Surprise as the Inconsistency of FBS Variables in Evaluators' Interpretation?

Year: 2016

Editor: Julie Linsey, Maria Yang, and Yukari Nagai

Author: Niccolo' Becattini, Yuri Borgianni, Gaetano Cascini and Federico Rotini

ISBN: 978-1-904670-82-7

Abstract

The paper presents the analysis of an original online survey that aims at checking the factors triggering surprise in randomly chosen evaluators who were submitted a set of surprising products. The authors use the answers to check the capability of a situated FBS-based model to help catch the main factors triggering surprise in products, here seen as a mismatch between what is interpreted and previously conceived expectations. The survey questionnaire shows to be effective in grabbing surprising factors and the results demonstrate that the model allows a strong ex-post convergence in the investigation of surprising factors.
