The Theory

Think back to your early school years – you learned to string several words together to form a sentence; you recited simple nursery rhymes; you worked to memorize your seven-digit telephone number. As children, we began with simple subjects because of the basic principles of psychology – the shorter the string of words, the easier they are to remember. These principles underlie decades old advertising principles that are still standards today.
