Why does it feel good to peel stuff?


The reason behind the human biological response (feeling of satisfaction) to peeling coatings off surfaces?

I’m sure there’s a term for it, but I was told that it’s a natural appreciate for what is perceived to be a unique, one of a kind experience. FOMO…or fear of missing out, drives human behavior, so watching or doing something for the first and only time falls into that bucket. You’re seeing something that couldn’t be more new, and you’re the first person to see it all clean and pretty.

Take that same person and force them to unbox dozens of computers/devices and peel off this stuff and get gets far less enjoyable. Eventually it becomes kinda irritating.
