Exploring Quantified Self Attitudes

Christel De Maeyer, Panos Markopoulos

Abstract

In recent years there is a growing optimism that health interventions may become more effective through the use of self-tracking. Related efforts are hampered by the short-lived compliance to self-tracking schemes. This paper examines the attitudes and motivations of self-trackers that could guide the design of self-tracking applications. Based on a questionnaire survey and follow up interviews a set of three personas of self trackers is proposed, in addition, design requirements are proposed for improving adherence to self-tracking technologies.
