    User experience (UX or UE), has been a buzz term over the past decade in the research of HCI. UX has developed in the arguments of scholars from designing experience, to designing for experience. Some have constructed models for explaining the influential factors of UX. This paper aims at opening enquiry regarding UX from the perspective of user psychology. Four dimensions of the UX of design form are discussed in light of findings of a recent empirical study - emotional, aesthetic, cognitive and technical. This leads into our discussion of the application of these dimensions, in further studies of UX design. It also provides a basis for establishing a mental ontology of UX.
