Study Results

Wellness of colleagues by percentage of metaphors

Participant Observations.


Direction on future studies

  • Test effectiveness of metaphorical vs non metaphorical images. It would be interesting to study the affordances of both.
  • Create tools to help people create their own metaphors
  • Create diary study for people. Allow participants to choose a different metaphor or image for each day.
