Your Participants are Smarter than You Think!

Note to My Future Self:

Your participants are smarter than you think. People can handle constantly increasing amounts of information and stimulus. Yes, do continue to make things SIMPLE, CLEAN, AND FUN, but do not discount the intelligence and abilities of the people who help you to do your work. Remember to always consider participants as your help mates and equals and not lab rats for study. Oversimplification can make things loose their core meaning and sometimes cause things to become boring. The nuance and detail interest those you speak with usually at least as much as it interests you.
