How Does It Work

The user has 9 areas of needs that contain a total of 64 needs. These can be evaluated individually, to what extent the individual feels psychic hunger and wants to satisfy it.

The psychological hunger cannot be satisfied directly by itself, for this we need other people, that is the nature of man.

With the help of scenarios (i.e. thoughts and images, which become a deeply emotional short story), memories are formed which stabilize the psychological structure.

The app offers several ways to become aware of one’s own needs.

Option I:

A complex algorithm is used to arrive at the assessment. The User has to perform several tasks.

  • 1. Evaluate wishes on a scale of 1-10
  • 2. Select 4 needs from each of the 9 areas and assess the level of one's own needs that have been met
  • 3. The app suggests areas that users can define for mental neuroimplants, i.e. scenarios.
  • 4. The progress is being recorded

The algorithm opens up new possibilities for users to view their needs from a different perspective.

Option II:

The user can independently select and assess individual needs and form scenarios, i.e. use mental neuroimplants.

Option III: 

It is easier for many people to use others as orientation. 

We receive impulses from people to whom we attribute certain strengths. Strengths are mostly based on satisfied psychological needs. With NIKU, the user forms associations that can form the basis of various strengths.

The user can then set up scenarios and create mental neuroimplants for himself.

The app provides orientation for all three options:

The app is designed in such a way that the user can monitor his progress. It makes sense to spend 14 days working on a single topic.

  • 1. Write texts and download pictures on the first day
  • 2. In the evening, shortly before falling asleep, experience the scenarios intensively and emotionally inwardly
  • 3. In the morning, immediately after waking up, bring back the scenarios and experience feelings intensively, "refuel" them
  • 4. Adjust the texts during the day and download new pictures if necessary.

In addition to the association of strengths and needs, the user can create a profile of “favorites”. This allows additional reflection on how the surrounding environment affects the user during a mental presence.
