I find I'm biased towards heavy things. I realize this is unreasonable, as a heavier object will not always be of better quality, but I still find that I prefer a heftier object even they wouldn't necessarily benefit from it. Here are some examples of some things I prefer to be heavy: bed frame (wooden) blankets watches tools cetain types of electronics glassware / dishes / silverware a chef's knife I've reasoned that if the object is going to be under consistent or constant stress, then heftier materials are typically able to withstand greater amounts of stress. However, it's an inherent bias I possess that won't always bode well for passing judgments. Does anyone else find themselves doing this, either consciously or subconsciously? If so, why do you think you do it?
