Provides empirical evidence that user preferences for system pace (interface conditions that vary only in the duration of interface timeouts) covary with user pace. • Reveals characteristics of user performance that can be automatically measured by a system as a basis for automatically adapting system pace. • Shows that users converge their rate of interaction towards that of the system. • Empirically demonstrates that fast-paced users prefer an adaptive system pace to a 'one size fits all' static pace.
