We perform and design experiments to test the proposed hypothesis in the Behavioral Change Design. These experiments are performed with real people under controllable and measurable environments. This way we tests whether the suggested solution actually works and it is appropriate for the pruposed setting.
Sets of pre-designed experiments
We also have specific experiments that have been already proved in several occasions and can be replicated without the diagnosis or design phase. Since these experiments have a generic sense to them, they do not have the deepness as a specifically designed experiment to change a certain behavior would have, nevertheless they are useful in revealing and proving behavioral knowledge.
These are the areas where pre-designed experiments can be done:
- Revelation of Preferences
- Aligning Incentives
- Dishonesty and Corruption
- Peer Pressure
- Cooperation and Competition
- Reciprocity and equity
