Think about driving aroute that’s very familiar. It could be your commute to work, a trip into townor the way home. Whichever it is, you know every twist and turn like the backof your hand. On these sorts of trips it’s easy to loseconcentration on the driving and pay little attention to the passing scenery.The consequence is that you perceive that the trip has taken less time than itactually has。
This is thewell-travelled road effect: people tend to underestimate the time it takes totravel a familiar route。
The effect is caused bythe way we allocate our attention. When we travel down a well-known route,because we don’t have to concentrate much, time seems to flow more quickly. Andafterwards, when we come to think back on it, we can’t remember the journeywell because we didn’t pay much attention to it. So we assume it was shorter。

The pie chart above presents the different proportion of residents’consumption in a Chinese city during Spring Festival. To be specific, the percentage of consumption on New Year’s gifts, party, traffic and others is 40%, 20% , 20% and 20% respectively. Surprisingly, the pertinent number about gifts is 40%. Isolated as the figures seem to be, they are connected to one another closely.
Undoubtedly, the purpose of the graph is to showcase the diversity of residents ’ consumption during holidays in China, especially over-consumption on gifts as a frequent way of interpersonal communication. What exactly contribute to this phenomenon? It’s a thought-provoking question. First and foremost, advertisements of mass media, such as radio, television and Internet, might be misleading. Plus, pertinent action taken by the public to put an end to this trend might be little and limit. Therefore, people, men and women, old and young, in mounting numbers are spending too much on holiday gift which floods everywhere.
To sum up, there is an upward tendency for people these days to spend money on festival presents rather than other things, which I believe will not change in a short time. To reverse the trend is not a piece of cake, which requires a good awareness of consumption value and interpersonal communication. Only in this way can we have colorful festivals and relaxing times.
