Spammin' in the Free World
I always choose the bad news. I want the bad news first simply to reduce the anxiety of the unknown. I prefer to get the bad stuff out of the way first so I can relax and enjoy the good. My assumption is that most people would also choose to hear the bad news first.
Whenever I get the bad news, and it isn't very bad at all, I get a secret thrill. I have escaped. By the same token, however, whenever the good news isn't that great, I am let down. It is a similar feeling to biting down into a cheesecake that looks great, but tastes like crap. Or when the preview for a film is hilarious, but the movie itself stinks.
Later I wondered: perhaps I am an exception. How do I know what others would choose simply based upon my own inner logic?
What would you choose to hear first? And what does that reveal about you?
All that from spam.
