Have I mentioned that Kathy Sierra is consistently among my favorite bloggers? This post right here is one of my reasons. She has a way to pull out stuff that I find fascinating and I never would have found on my own.
In this case, she shows a,well provocative photo of a pretty naked woman whose most private areas are veiled by a shower curtain baring only a bit of leg, arm and face while the rest is left to imagination.
She says scientists argue that this sort of photo, leaving key points to the beholder's cognitive imagination, turns on people of the male persuasion more than a full frontal nude would.
I am not going to er... reveal if this is true of me, but I do wonder how scientists researched the matter and how they drew the conclusion.
The marketing point, however, is irrefutable. We all hate total brain dumps. We like being fed information in little spoonfuls taking more if we wish after we've digested what we've receive so far. There are no business stories that I recall hearing, where I could not fill in the unrevealed parts and felt, well satisfied.
As far as Kathy's photo goes, well I have to admit that i really love the shower curtain.
