A group of graduate students from IIT Institute of Design designed a tool
kit (flash cards) that tie behavioral economics with design strategies and
problem solving.

You can download their toolkit from here:

I personally find these reference cards and worksheets helpful and handy.
They remind you of the basic principles behind different design decisions we
make. For example, the principle of ownership indicates that 'Me' and 'Mine'
make things extra valuable. Therefore one of the strategies associated to it
is 'Align the desired outcome with the users' identity.'

Hope you enjoy using them!
