Personal Informatics for Reflection on Personal Values
Christian Detweiler, Alina Pommeranz, Catholijn M. Jonker
In this paper we advocate the use of personal informatics systems for self-reflection on personal values. We describe the role values play as guiding principles in people’s lives. We then describe Value- Sensitive Design, an approach to the design of technology that aims to account for values throughout the design process. We subsequently argue that personal informatics, in its focus on self-reflection, is well-suited as a means for discovering and understanding personal values, which can then be used as a starting point for Value-Sensitive Design. Finally, we provide a preliminary description of a mobile application we will implement that will support reflection on personal values.
