The Minecraft lampshades are so annoying, you might want to keep them off your windows, according to a new study.
In the study, published online today in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, researchers asked volunteers to imagine they were trying to use a computer, but it was difficult to reach the task.
The study participants had to guess what computer it was they were using, and then the researchers told them to try to click on the “Go” button and the computer would respond, “No, please try again.”
The volunteers then had to click repeatedly on the button and it would sometimes answer, “Yes,” but sometimes it would reply, “I don’t understand you,” or “I am not an expert.”
After the experiment was over, the volunteers were shown a screen showing a picture of a computer with a lampshaded logo, a caption that said, “The Minecraft lampShade is the annoying part of Minecraft, it seems that the more the user tries to use the lampshading interface, the more difficult it becomes to use it.”
The participants were also told that a computer could not work on the Minecraft lampshield, so they were given a computer that worked on the lampshield.
When they were asked to try and click on a lampshield with the lampstand, they did so successfully on the computer.
But the researchers also found that the volunteers didn’t understand the difference between the lampShades and the lampStays.
The volunteers were told that if they tried to use either one, it would not work.
The researchers wrote: “The lampShaders are not only annoying, but also have the potential to mislead, especially when trying to reach an objective goal.
As such, the results suggest that lampShading might be a tool for achieving objective goals.””
A user might not be able to accurately predict which of the two is the better tool to use, or that they will use the wrong one in a situation when it is the correct one,” the researchers added.
