In Psychology there’s this bias called the IKEA Effect – where people place a higher value on items they build themselves compared to items they did not construct. Since I’d recently ordered new furniture, I thought I’d put this IKEA Effect into practice. A HUGE thank you to Joanna Hausmann for her help. Please go subscribe to her channel! We owe her. A lot.
