Top 10 Reasons You Love Lists
Tags: lists, love, reasons, why, mass, people, you, read, easy, concise
Here are some reasons why everyone loves lists... can you help us think of a couple more?
|1. ||Instant Knowledge - Nobody likes to work hard and study to acquire knowledge.|
|2. ||Requires Little to No Individual Thought - Lists don’t make you think - they outline what you should be doing and tell you [how] to do it.|
|3. ||Lists Have Authority - When a mob sees information outlined in a list they instantly acknowledge its authority.|
|4. ||Easy to Memorize and Casually Mention in Conversation - Members of the mob are always looking for ways to stand out from their friends.|
|5. ||Lists are Skimmable - Who reads an entire article? Honestly.|
|6. ||Mobs Like Uniformity - Masses don’t really enjoy chaotic articles that aren’t confined to lists and instead are structured by paragraphs centered around a thesis.|
|7. ||Lists Have an Ending - People don’t like going into an article not knowing if it’s going to be “continued later.”|
|8. ||People Like Counting - I don’t have much of an explanation to this one, but it seems that people in general really enjoy counting.|

I agree, especially when I'm searching for info online. I'd rather skim a list than read a whole article only to discover it contained nothing helpful.
