Information collection may affect the design quality and designer's performance through changing the structure of information and the way how information is searched and organized. Based on the theoretical analysis conducted by Wang et al., the present work continues to investigate the influence of designer?s natural choice of information collection strategy on his/her mental stress both theoretically and empirically. Designers? stresses are quantified from HRV data and are compared under different information collection strategies.
