Insights: Guessing the Killer Is a Confidence Boost by Eric Nagourney

"A new study finds that people with low self-esteem don't seem to like it much when a story ends with a twist. In a whodunit, they like the "who" to be the person they suspected all along."

A cool new study as reported in the New York Times.


I won't keep you in suspense - this is how I feel about it. I don't like the "who" to be the person suspected all along at all which suggests I have a healthy self-esteem - cool. However I really don't like it if the "who" is a twist just to be a twist in which case I find it highly insulting.
