This study aims to provide an understanding of the Kansei evaluation model in human sciences. Kansei means subjective criteria work on the emotional aspects of events (Lee, 2000). In a previous study (Lee, 2001), we found several effects of Kansei for evaluation when people appreciated paintings or products. This paper describes how Kansei works on design approaches and the relationship it has with personality through brain waves. Kansei works differently by people, events, and conditions and it brings pure image of unconsciousness. Through unconscious evaluation on products, such as sketches and models, we can see how he/she feels purely with the product. It introduces experiments on brain waves when people engage in various behaviors. This idea originated in the human sciences has recently been extended to interdisciplinary fields including the medical and neural sciences. From the correlation between creation/imagination and various behaviors through brain waves we show the possibility of developing an educational support tool for creativity.
