Less is better effect

From Memetics

A type of preference reversal that occurs when the lesser or smaller alternative of a proposition is preferred when evaluated separately, but not evaluated together.


Examples

Seven ounces of ice cream overflowing in a small cup is preferred over eight ounces in a much larger cup.

Giving away a $45 expensive scarf is seen as more generous than a cheap $55 coat.
