From Sisters for FI …
I’ve been reading a bunch of books lately on human behavior with the latest being Irresistible: The Rise of Addictive Technology. The author went through the process of highlighting addictive behavior for substances as well as games and this got me thinking. Why can’t we do that a bit with money management.
Why are people very willing to pay hundreds of dollars and spend hours to take care of an imaginary farm (Farmville) or get to a fake celebrity status (Kim Kardashian’s app).
I thought I would sit down and see how we can gamify the journey to FI based on existing principles of how to engineer an addictive gaming experience.
