The Application of Materials

Every designer should know the application of materials 1.

As a UX designer, this is tricky. What is the material of UX? Or rather, what is UX manipulating?

People will say that the material of UX is behaviour, but I find that reductive. And inaccurate as changing thoughts and actions is the point of all design.

I don’t have a good answer.
