Towards a Design Methodology for Applying Intuitive Interaction
Intuitive interaction involves utilising knowledge gained through other products or experience(s). Therefore, products that people use intuitively are those with features they have encountered

Intuitive Interaction Applied to Interface Design
TLDR
The findings suggest that relevant past experience is transferable between products, and probably also between contexts, and performance is affected by a person’s level of familiarity with similar technologies.
Empirical investigations into intuitive interaction: a summary
TLDR
Prior exposure to products employing similar features helped participants to complete set tasks more quickly and intuitively, and that familiar features were intuitively used more often than unfamiliar ones.
Towards a Design Methodology for Applying Intuitive
TLDR
The role of intuition in the way that people learn to operate unfamiliar devices, and the importance of this for designers, has been examined by these authors.
Investigating users' intuitive interaction with complex artefacts.
Evaluating intuitive interactions using image schemas
TLDR
The results show that the approach links the image schemas used for the completion of a task to the affective experiences of the users, which has potential to lead to significant improvements in design for intuitive use.
Intuitive Interaction with Complex Artefacts
TLDR
By applying the principles of intuitive interaction developed previously, it was possible to increase the intuitive usability of the product.
Concept of Intuitive Interaction
TLDR
This paper has developed novel approaches and techniques for studying intuitive use of interfaces, and shown that intuitive interaction is based on past experience with similar artefacts.
STUDIES OF INTUITIVE INTERACTION EMPLOYING OBSERVATION AND CONCURRENT PROTOCOL
TLDR
This paper explores intuitive interaction with products from a methodological standpoint using specialist observation software to find ways of recording and coding observations so this level of detail could be extracted from user tests.

TLDR
This research addresses the issue of Intuitive Graphical User Interface Design as one that provides first-time (novice) users of an application, the ease of use and learning, ease of retention over time, and overall subjective satisfaction.
Mind over Machine: The Power of Human Intuition and Expertise in the Era of the Computer
TLDR
The authors, one a philosopher and the other a computer scientist, argue that even highly advanced systems only correspond to the very early stages of human learning and that there are many human skills that computers will never be able to emulate.
