Research on favourite places suggests that three different types of favourite places can be distinguished: Place centred, person centred or interactive places (Newell, 1997). This study examined the favourite places of conference delegates at the IAPS 18 in Vienna in 2004. The study aimed to examine to what extent favourite places of environment behaviour researchers may differ from other people’s favourite places. At the IAPS 18 in Vienna students from the MSc Environmental Psychology course at the University of Surrey asked conference delegates to indicate on a map of the world what their favourite place is and why. In total 87 people participated in this study; around 22% of the delegates. Most people (68%) referred to a specific town or city. The remainder referred to a country or area within a country. Person centred reasons (home) were given 33% of the respondents. Place centred reasons (beautiful place, lovely city) were given by (47%) of the respondents. Interactive places were mentioned by 14 people (16%) of the respondents. Natural environments were mentioned much less often by IAPS delegates (by 34%) than Newell (1997) found in her study with the general public (68%). Urban environments were mentioned more often by IAPS delegates (13%). Seven responses could not be classified. Interestingly 5 people (6%) specifically mentioned nice food. This was not related to either references to home or to references to social interaction. It can be concluded that IAPS conference delegates do not mention the same favourite places as do members of the general public investigated by Newell (1997). Urban environments were mentioned more often, perhaps because IAPS delegates have a stronger interest in the built environment. Moreover, very few people referred to small scale environments such as particular rooms or even areas within a town or city. This may be due to the use of the map to elicit response which could have prompted people to think in terms of geographical locations. It may also be due to the fact that respondents were away from home, making them think more globally rather than locally. Taken together these finding suggest that favourite places may vary depending on who is being asked, but also where and how they are asked.
