To some extent, everyone has trouble perceiving time as objective, yes?
In the above Sackett study, people perceived an interesting task as lasting shorter and a boring task as lasting longer. Participants also rated a task was more fun when told the time spent on it was shorter, and rated a task as less fun when told the period of time that passed was longer, leading to the adage “time flies when you’re having fun.”
I perceive the opposite of what is conventional – that fun experiences last longer than they actually are, and take up more memory space, while boring experiences are glossed over. Memories and time are such finicky things to understand, and my best pictoral representation has to be this unique set of gadget-y clocks.
