Why People Prefer Cute/beautiful Partners To Dryfry/Marry

-Study has shown that the human brain was made lazy by default.
Read On;
-Do you know what’s the average attention span of a
person these days?
-While there are so many numbers out there the largest
one i saw was below 10 seconds. As a result of the
technology advancement and the explosion of ads our
attention span became shorter than it was.
-Today most people are impatient, intolerant and easily
irritated. Because of all of these changes many people
no longer have a calm mind that allows them to examine
complex things. Most people just want something simple
that they can understand fast.
-In addition to this our brains are very energy intensive.
While the brain works perfectly it consumes a lot of
energy and as a result we prefer to go for simple things
that don’t put high cognitive load on our brains.
-A product that is simple to understand is much more
likely to become popular than a complex product. In
addition when humans are faced with two choices they
always go for the easier one. If you can lose weight
using a new imaginary device that burns calories while
you are asleep then most probably you will never run
-Five examples that prove that simple is always better;

  1. The Smartphone Vs old phones: Do you remember
    the phones that had physical keyboards? The reason
    the Iphone was a breakthrough when it was first
    introduced is that it simplified the user experience in a
    way that was never done before. Instead of having a
    full keyboard it only had one button.

  2. Beautiful people Vs average looking ones: Why do
    you think we like to look at beautiful people? dry fryng them and all that? one
    study has shown that symmetrical faces are much
    easier for the brain to process and that’s why we feel
    good when we look at them. This is what the human brain interprets as cute/beautiful.
    -Unattractive peoole are considered so because the human brain finds their features assymmetrical hence cant be processed easily. Thats why people dont go for them. A very lazy brain the human has.
    -When we
    become familiar with someone, we find him more
    attractive but do you know why this happens? It’s
    because our brains learn how to process the facial
    features faster of a familiar person.

-In other words it
becomes easier for the brain to process the looks of
that person

  1. List posts vs content blocks: I am pretty sure that
    you feel much better when you read a list post than
    when you read content blocks and the reason is the
    same. Our minds prefer the posts that put lower load
    on our brains.

  2. Signing with Facebook vs registering with email: Did
    you sign using facebook before to a site or game? if
    you did that then most probably you noticed that
    Email sign ups became much harder and more
    frustrating. Because we are lazy by default we prefer
    the easier path.

  3. Flappy birds popularity: One
    of the main reasons that game became popular is that
    it’s extremely easy to learn (not how to win). There is
    no learning curve. Once you play the game you quickly
    discover that there is one action only you can do. In
    other words the controls are extremely easy to learn.

Simplicity vs design complexity.
So many people get that concept wrong. As soon as
they are told that simpler products are better they
quickly start to defend their point by mentioning few
complex products that became popular.
-What those people missed is that simplicity should be
implemented in the interface the customer will interact
with but this doesn’t mean that the product itself can’t
be complex. For example the Ipad is a complex device. It
has so many circuits integrated in a small space but the
user interface is extremely simple.
-When you try to create a product, a business or a
website make it as complex as you want but when it
comes to the part where the customer will get involved
it has to be extremely simple.


This is too long for me to read…please make it easier for my brain.

My lazy brain refuses to read all that.

toooooooo loooooong weka summary halafu uniletee synopsis ya hiyo summary nijue umeandika nini

:)Good article

Interesting shit

If there is one thing that really gets on my last nerve it is filling any kind of form,or anything that involves registering online.
I dont give a faq if i am going to save a million dollars but the moment you mention registering and filling all “highlighted” sections…you can faq off and i am not interested anymore.
You would think that life is supposed to be less complex thanks to technology but for people like me ,remembering more than 2 passwords is a head wrecker and that is why i wouldnt be seen dead on facebook or twitter etc.... i register but cant remember the passwords two days later so i just decide "faq it!!!" I think ni kuzeeka ama the fact that i think that life is complicated enough as it is i dont need any more stress.

Hehehe…I feel you. A little suggestion on password management: have one master-password then add one or two last letters to reflect the website for which you’ll use it. Kwa mfano, assuming the password is, say, Kabuda you then add ‘y’ for yahoo (kabuday), ‘f’ for Facebook (kabudaf), ‘t’ for Twitter (kabudat) etc.


Kabudaf sounds funny.

One can also hyphenate e.g kabuda-f, bushido-f, etc. :slight_smile:

Thats a brilliant idea but knowing myself.bado nitasahau tu and i will end up getting frustrated.Labda im developing dementia. hehehehe

my brain has just refused to read the whole article.

That would be practical until websites introduce new rules such as the use of at least 8 characters,inclusion of an uppercase letter, and the use of at least one non-letter character.

Hehehe…I highly doubt. Hujafikisha umri wa hiyo.

Hiyo master-password yako will have all that. The only thing that changes is the final one or two letters and/or hyphen shoud you choose to use it. Twas just a suggestion lakini.

You are not alone. Most people feel that way.Far too many engagements going on to keep simple details in your head. In the pre-internet age, you just needed to remember your ID, address, and a few other details. I will walk away from an engagement the moment you suggest that I fill some form.Most websites try to get around this problems by allowing people to sign in using other popular sites.
