Low ceilings inhibit thinking and exacerbate* criticism

Live Science says “In every tested situation a 10-foot ceiling correlated with subject activity that the researchers interpreted as “freer, more abstract thinking,” whereas subjects in an 8-foot room were more likely to focus on specifics.”

They also said there was more criticism in short ceilinged rooms.

We need to move. That’s the ticket. We need higher ceilings. Then we’d all love each other and never criticize.

*Exacerbate means to worsen according to Princeton.
