    Default Perspectives #2

    Read this first:

    Let's say you put a bottle of your regular drink in the fridge. A few hours you come back to get some to realize, when you put it in sideways, you forgot to twist the cap on all the way, and much of it has leaked out all over the fridge.

    Which has worried you the most upon your very first impression?

    A) That there is now a big mess in the refrigerator

    B) Your favorite drink has partly gone to waste


    If you can't chose, your your initial impression was both, thats fine, but dont vote.

    I would pick A unless the drink happened to be very expensive or hard to get a hold of.

    Yes actually I think this question is rather dull, see. I think everyone usually perceives the spilling which initially associates to mess, because thats what is there. One will trace the mess to other things that got ruined, and upon doing that one might first realize that there is less for them to drink, rather than there is simply drink that has gone out of the bottle. I think it will take people longer to refigure the potential status of their drink, unless like you said it has been something on their mind, or highly regarded.

    I hate messes. Especially anything sticky. I would be mildly annoyed that I didn't get to drink my drink, but fairly upset that I now have to clean up this unpleasant mess. Especially if it gets in the cracks where I can't clean it, and it stays there for years, moldering and festering. I have a hard enough time keeping my house clean as it is...

    I picked B. Just what immediately would come to mind is that I lost whatever it was I wanted. Just the other day, my little brother knocked a jar of salsa out of my hand, and my first thought was that I really wanted to eat it. It was only after I caught it that I realized I was glad I wasn't going to have to clean up such a big mess. The mess just isn't the first thing that comes to mind. perhaps related to polr?

    Whoops voted accidentaly A. Meant to vote B.

    B because I really hate it when I have wasted money. Although cleaning is also a bitch, because I don't like doing anything physical. But so is having to go to buy more drink, which leans to option B.

    No distaste for messiness, or paying attention to it, isn't related Te at all.

    A, because it's annoying discovering out of nowhere you've got work to do. Maybe B if I was thirsty as hell and I was like OMG GATORADE and came home to find that I was

    1) Retarded enough to put a drink in the fridge sideways

    2) Didn't understand the physics of twisty caps
