Understanding different facets of positive user experience (UX) is of great interest to researchers. Recently, 'positive design' and fostering happiness through technology is gaining more attention. However, little empirical research exists about such different facets of UX. We adopted a concept from positive psychology that describes different facets of positive experiences: 'hedonic enjoyment' and 'personal expressiveness'. The aim of the present study was to explore how hedonic enjoyment and personal expressiveness relate to established UX concepts. Results suggest a more granular picture of UX, in that, hedonic enjoyment was associated with less negative affect and more stimulation, whereas personal expressiveness was correlated with more negative affect and psychological needs such as competence, relatedness, popularity and security. Based on these findings further implications and research possibilities are discussed.
