Gift Giving

Filed under: Links to Greatness — williamthecoroner @ 11:31

Via Blunt Object, I find TJIC’s Demorgan’s Law Applied to Gift Giving

I argued that, to many people all of the time, and to all people some of the time, receiving a decent gift at an appropriate time (birthday, Christmas, an anniversary) is quite important, not for the value of the gift, but because of the signal that a decent gift sends.
Because I’m a huge nerd, I made it into an equation:

A && T && M → G

A == caring, as expressed in paying Attention to recipient’s interests
T == caring, as expressed in Time spent
M == caring, as expressed in Money spent
G == Gift purchased
