Mike from Vsauce¬†explains why our brains tend to think in logarithms and why my early 20’s seem like a huge blur. Even more interesting is how he explores the way we perceive size: saving $5 on a $10 purchase seems like a worthy achievement whereas saving $5 on a $2,000 purchase is usually negligible or¬†ignored despite the fact that in both instances, $5 is saved. Our brains are naturally programmed to weigh size relative to a bigger picture. For the whole picture, watch the video below.
