In the News "Ask adults from the industrialized world what number is halfway between 1 and 9, and most will say 5. But pose the same question to small children, or people living in some traditional societies, and they're likely to answer 3. Cognitive scientists theorize that that's because it's actually more natural for humans to think logarithmically than linearly." Fascinating. The human brain is such a magical machine.

Next test would be to tell them you'll pay them in between 5 and 10 dollars and hour and see what they come up with. Bet they now say 10 dollars.
