The research result that 'people prefer rough numbers over fine numbers even if they work disadvantageously' was shown experimentally by Mr. Gaurav Jain, a behaviorologist at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Jane conducted 6 experiments on 1552 volunteers. We examined how people's perceptions changed when subjects were presented with sentences containing 'detailed numbers' or 'rough numbers'.

What this experiment showed is that people take detailed numbers as offensive. During the experiment, researchers discovered that when they were shown a small number, they stopped for thought. Then, when the subject saw a fine number that was not easy to understand, it was negative compared to the ideal number such as '100%', which was easy to understand It was said to have been evaluated.

'Numbers are a kind of language and can give us a non-numeric view. When we showed the numbers in detail, the rating worsened. There is no clear reason why this happens. That's an amazing result,' says Jain.

``Management and public health officials should be careful about using detailed numbers, as using this approach in communicating communication can result in a lower subjective assessment of the target of relevant attributes. 'Jane said.
