Relax, it's the door, not you stupid.

It's okay. It's not your fault. You don't have to feel like an idiot just because you fuck up doors.
If you continually get a door wrong, is it your fault? No. Absolutely not.
In fact, if you and other people continually get it wrong, it’s a good sign that it’s a really bad door. And we actually have a term for it: Norman door.

A Norman door is a poorly designed door that confuses or fails to give you an idea whether to push or pull. It was named after Don Norman, the author of The Design of Everyday Things which explored the phenomenon.


In his book the chapter is called "The Psychopathology of Everyday Things" -- I love that. :biggrin:
shut up
