To paraphrase a different quoteThat is what an optimizer would say.
My players are intelligent well educated people (mostly masters and some PHDs), yet they almost never take the "stupidly obviously better" option. They simply don't look at things that way. I feel like it is really hard for optimizers to understand the non-optimizer mindset (and probably vice versa).
“The difference is that non-optimisers understand optimizers. Optimizers only think they understand non-optimizers.”
