21. Overestimating Is Better – When It Comes To Time
Have you noticed how amusement parks tend to overestimate the wait time for their rides? Or flights add a 15-30 minute buffer on their estimated flights times? That’s because when you underpromise and overdeliver, people get happy!
Scientists have found that overestimating the time it will take you to do something makes us happier than underestimating. Because when we actually end up completing it in lesser time than predicted, it makes us feel rewarded.
