We reject mathematics because these behaviors impose too realistic and we like more give in to the pleasure.
For each of us the money is worth exactly the effort we made to win.
If our child asks us some cooperation in their spending the weekend, probably engage in some kind of bargain in which he will highlight how much the tickets to access each place of fun, tickets for transportation, food, invitations, contingencies, while taxpayers will stress how many hours and effort it took to win every one of those pieces of paper that he asks with desaprensión irritating.
However, the value of certain things in your buyers causes amnesia unusual, because the pay realistically can not remember how many hours and effort we made to get to collect that amount.
This phenomenon is observed particularly often in large family purchases made house, car, travel.
Indeed, most of us know to make an objective assessment and emotional value of money when we apply ourselves to make everyday purchases: food, fuel, education, but for large purchases, for those who have to save for years or that we undertake to pay for a long time, that we lose track of how much it costs to earn what we earn.
It is common, for example, the buyer decides whether an investment can pay a certain fee, but dismisses calculate how many should be, and maybe give the same pay 20 quota 24.
I propose to think that humanity rejects us includes math because these behaviors impose too realistic and we like most enjoy, dream, carried away by the charming smile of the seller or 'the mother will face when you see what I bought! ".
