Asking Myself 10,000 Questions by Brian Levine
March 10, 2016
From The Quantified Self Public Health Symposium
How do you study yourself when you’re not looking? Brian Levine is the co-founder of Tap2, the creator of younlocked, a unique self-assessment tool that helps individuals collect self-report data by asking questions during the phone unlocking process. By answering almost 10,000 questions during a six-month period Brian was able to find out: “Why am I so tired, and why can’t I be in a better mood?” By connecting self-assessment to the phone unlocking gesture, which is performed many times a day, Brian created a novel form of self-observation. In this short talk Brian shares some details about his rich self-collected data set that, as well as a method that, if widely adopted, could be the foundation for many new personal and public health discoveries.
