Chapter 3 was very interesting because it was the first chapter to part away from design and talk about psychology and our selves. Norman talked about 2 different types of knowledge. He talked about knowledge in your head and in the world. He talks about memory. When he talked about the knowledge/memory in your head is usually short or long term, but knowledge in the world has a lot to do with memory too. I Liked when he showed the different stove setups. It made me think about the keyboard. Even though the keyboard is not set up in alphabetical order we use our memory and knowledge when we learnt how to use the keyboard in grade school.
