NewsThe Rule of Seven: how to overload the brain of a programmer for no good reason Pin

There is an old, but very important paper in psychology called The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information. It measures the limits of the brain processing information, and puts a number to it: the human brain can jiggle 5 to 9 concepts simultaneously.
Is that the rule that you have to forget the name of exactly one of Snow White's Dwarves?

Sneezy, Bashful, Grumpy, Doc, Sleepy, Dopey, uhm... uhm...Blitzen?
