And Swap Your Rocks Glasses for Highballs
The same logic for plates applies to your glasses, too. Wansink found that people perceive tall thin glasses as holding more than short, wide glasses even when they actually hold the same volume. As a result, people poured (and then consumed) almost 30 percent more when using the short glasses. “Opt for the illusion of the tall glass, and don’t pour all the way to the top,” he suggests. Make your taller, thinner glasses your everyday drinkware.
