Chapter 7. Homo Logicus > The Jetway Test

The Jetway Test

I use a humorous litmus test that I call the Jetway Test to highlight the difference. To perform this test, all you have to do is visualize yourself walking down the corridor of a Jetway as you board an airliner. As you step onto the aircraft, you have a choice of going left into the cockpit or right into the cabin.

To the left, the cockpit is a kaleidoscope of complex controls and gauges, with every surface covered with instruments, knobs, and levers. To the right, in stark contrast, lies the cabin, where everything is gently rounded, smooth, and a calm-inducing shade of beige.
