What Sounds More Reasonable?

An Odd Human Quirk

There is a certain human quality that believes that something which sounds more complicated must be better. While this is perhaps a minor oversimplification, this phenomenon can be seen in the realm of modern technology. When purchasing a new television, for instance, the more expensive or “fancy” models tend to include numerous features (of uncertain reality or usefulness). The more complicated sounding the features are, the more appealing the product.
