Sample text

It is important to notice here that the skin conductivity value after the first error did not go back to the starting level and therefore represents a further increase compared to the increased levels. Consequently a psychic strain is to be assumed. Fig. 5. Skin conductivity value after F2 An additional increase of the skin conductivity value could be measured in the test persons with failures under additional time pressure (Fig. 6). This increase is smaller than that in the test persons without failures (Fig.

In both figures it can be seen that high and very high increases of the skin conductivity levels (in percent) can be found in 24 A. Hoppe employees younger than 45 years, but that a reaction to technological stress due to failure of technology could be proved in all test persons. Fig. 4. Skin conductivity level after F1 In Figure 5 it becomes obvious that after the second error event a further reaction to the disappearance of the text could be ascertained by measuring the skin conductivity levels.

Test persons who stated a “very low” and “low” stress perception during the experiment showed an increase (in percent) in the skin conductivity value of 200% (Fig. 8). This is a clear indicator that neither group subjectively experienced a proven strain when working with technology. 26 A. Hoppe Fig. 8. Test persons with low/very low subjective stress perception in comparison to measured skin conductivity levels The observation with the help of two cameras resulted in another interesting statement on the behavior and actions of the test persons.
