The traditional methods for uncovering usage patterns, feelings, or attitudes are to use a focus group or survey data. These methods have merit and serve a useful purpose; however, it is known that the drivers of behavioral action are often unknown to the one performing the action. Attitudes, feelings, and motivations are System 1 properties, whereas declarative knowledge is solely a job for System 2. The key, therefore, is to uncover the revealed data through direct observation.

Today’s technology can record willing respondents with minimal invasion; in some cases respondents can even record themselves with their own smartphones. As such, one can assess facial expressions, see what the participant sees via eye-tracking, monitor spatial behaviors, measure respondents’ physiology, and/or annotate actions of interest from recording videos or in a live setting.
