      Anything beyond 5, or possibly 8, in the faux-Fibonacci series is a WAG dressed up with precision.  When given the choice between precision and accuracy, I'll take accuracy, thanks.

      As you get larger you need bigger margin for error. You can discern between 1 & 2 less so between a 40 and 41 pointer so that's why fibonnaci works well

Then the next story which is twice the size of that one let's say then you'd give that one a 5. Remember there is no 4 as you should use the modified fibonaci sequence 1,2,3,5,8,13,20,40,100. You can also ad 0, 0.5 if u wish.
