The QWERTY effect

Wired reports on the QWERTY effect. It seems that the ease, or difficulty with which words can be typed on a keyboard has a measurable impact on perceptions of the word. If it uses letters on the right hand side, it’s likely to get better perceptions.

I’m always intrigued how things affect our perceptions in ways we’d never normally notice or credit.
