TIL: The IKEA effect is a cognitive bias, that lets you think, stuff build by yourself is more worth then stuff build by others

Does that sound familiar to anyone?

    Putting effort and thought into something creates a personal relation? Yeah that sounds probable

    Depends on how you define build. Building something from IKEA by yourself isn't more worth for me. Because you are basically just putting some premanufactured stuff together. It is a bit like using libraries to build your own app. Except you just use those to accomplish a target. At IKEA the target for each component is already set. Now buying some wooden planks and making my own e.g. table that's a nice thing and depending on your skill it may also be more worth than others tables...

    I will always value a handmade furniture more than an IKEA one, especially if I have personally put effort in its fabrication or if it was made specially for me.

    I will always value a handmade cake more than an cake-mix one, especially if I have personally put effort in its fabrication or if it was made specially for me.

    That why I'm learning Ruby on Rails to make my blog, instead of going for WordPress or other blog platforms.
    It may not be as goodly made, but it's mine and it's helping me grow.
