Abstract:The study aimed to explore the impact of personalization on engagement and wellbeing in a digital health intervention. Using the TWEETS scale, which assesses engagement based on its affective, behavioural, and cognitive components, a randomized controlled trial was conducted. Participants in the experimental group received personalized interventions based on their preferences, while the control group received a random version. The study found no significant effects of personalization on wellbeing or the components of engagement. Furthermore, there was no evidence that the components of engagement mediated the relationship between personalization and wellbeing. However, the behavioural component did show a significant effect on wellbeing. Both the experimental and control groups experienced a decline in engagement over time, while wellbeing improved for all participants from baseline to post-intervention. The study suggests that future research should explore dynamic personalization procedures and investigate participants' motivation in relation to engagement. It is recommended to study the effects of different engagement components on psychological constructs beyond wellbeing.
