I am conducting a study with the aim of examining the link between
Positive Affect (good mood) and interaction. The hypothesis is that
someone in a good mood will be more creative and will perceive a
particularly difficult system as easier to use compared to someone who
is not in a good mood.

I am mailing to the list, as I was wondering if anyone knows any
particularly difficult or unusable websites or tasks on applications
that I could use in my experiments.

Also if anyone knows of any literature that is looking at this subject
then that would be usefull to.

Thanks for any help you can give me and any links to unusable sites
will be greatly appreciated

Thanks

How are you going to measure positive affect?
Or mood swing caused by design?

useit.com - many will agree on this list.

To the best of my knowledge, there is nothing established (as far as
emparical sciences are concerned) on the subject of measuring moods.
The research for Emotional Quotient is still at it's infancy. However
I would recommend to read more on EQ/EI recent work.
