PsychologyVille – Just a Discussion
published: 2016

A few years ago, I read an interesting article on the BBC website about psychology and testing. I emailed the author, a university professor and suggested creating a few maps for testing purposes. I can’t remember the exact details, but video games seemed an ideal medium for the tests. Unfortunately, I never heard back from him which was a little disappointing, but there you go.

And then yesterday I read this BBC article called Why are people so gullible? and it got me thinking again.

I’m not actually proposing this Ville but I would like us to talk about potential ideas. There must be plenty of ways of introducing specific psychological concepts into maps.

I’ve probably posted more of Miigga’s maps on PP than anybody else.

Well, I finally managed to arrange an interview with him and here it is.

We chat about his mapping, his maps, his map names and even why there seem to be so many mappers from Finland!

Hope you enjoy it.

If you have any questions of your own, please post them as comments and hopefully he will be able to answer them for you.
