The guy who founded Ikea died on Saturday, and in his honor, a new survey asked a question that really defines his life’s work. When you’re putting together Ikea stuff, do you follow their instructions, or just kinda wing it and figure it out yourself?
50% of people say they follow the instructions to the letter. Well, not really to the letter, since Ikea instructions are just pictures, but they follow those pictures perfectly.
12% of people try to figure things out themselves, and 30% say they do a mixture of the two. (YouGov)
