    Individual differences have been shown to lead to different navigation styles. In this paper we present a pilot study that aims at finding predictors for users’ vulnerability to experience disorientation that can be gathered unobtrusively and in real-time. We identified two navigation styles that we called flimsy navigation and laborious navigation that together predict users’ perceived disorientation. Our findings suggest that adaptive navigation support that addresses these navigation styles is a promising means to ease the various problems that are commonly associated with users experiencing disorientation.
