Pick a number between 1 and 20

You picked 17 didn't you. All is not random in the random picking of numbers.

It seems that humans prefer picking odd numbers to even numbers, and prime numbers to ordinary numbers.

Number 7 also ranked high, I wonder if its to do with the familarity of '7' in our life with 7 days in a week.

So why not 19? Dunno, read the article and see the charts.
