Rate iTunes songs on a wider scale

Read "The Paradox of Choice" to see why you might not want to do this.

Rate iTunes songs on a wider scale
Authored by: taxi on Feb 06, '05 06:51:58AM

I don't think I've got it in my library. Can you elaborate on why having a wider range of possible ratings is bad?

With some of the comments that have been posted, like the idea to have a fluid rating system that up-rates songs that you listen to the whole song (or most of it) and down rates songs you skip them, finer grained ratings seem like a good idea.

I was already finding that I rated a heap of songs at 100%, and within that there were songs that weren't my 'absoloute' favourite-ist. (!)

I suspect that the size of my (and most other people's) iTunes collections are more likely to provide an example of "The Paradox of Choice" (from what I can gather from reading the Amazon.com review).

This is not intended as a flame - if there is a particular reason why that book is relevant to this tip/idea/argument, I'd love to hear it.
