Information, such as news, presented to individual users may be customized on the basis of the immediate emotional and cognitive types of psychological effects it is likely to enable or create. Both content and its way of presentation (modality, visual layouts, ways of interaction, structure) may be varied. Despite obvious complexities empirical evidence suggests that the way of presenting information to certain psychological profiles has predictable psychological effects. For instance, one may facilitate positive emotion for users with certain personality type or more efficient learning for certain cognitive styles. This is the concept of Mind-Based Technologies. Psychological Customization is a technique of implementation of Mind-Based Technologies. This paper describes the basics of Psychological Customization and discusses the personalization of the form of news as one possible application area to enhance learning from news in everyday use of the media.
