   "... property of an object, or a feature of the immediate environment, that indicates how to interface with that object or feature"   Added by: sirfragalot

   Gibson originally introduced it as an objective term referring to all action possibilities that are possible and within the capabilities of the subject. Donald Norman refined this in 1988 to a subjective perceived affordance that includes definitions of what is likely to happen based upon the subject's experiences, beliefs etc.   Added by: sirfragalot

   A perceived affordance (according to the field of ecological cognition) leads the subject to derive a plan to act upon that affordance. Unless cognitive dissonance occurs (using the object in ways other than suggested by the affordances), that plan will be acted upon.   Added by: sirfragalot
