Student loans and how the deed is infinitely stronger than the word

Interesting article giving the perspectives of three people with outstanding student loans and how they’re paying it off.

I’d never been that heavily in debt and I do sometimes wonder what I’d do. Though I cannot say for sure, I do not see myself holding off the payment of loans if I could I help it. But I probably won’t need to theorise much more as in a few years time my mortgage will kick in and it’d be interesting to see if I’d practice what I preach about paying loans off as soon as I can. I cannot say for sure if that’s what I’d do.

That’s the thing about people: they may foresee themselves doing one thing, and saying they’d do it, only to do something else altogether when they really do it. They’d say I’d buy Brand X, definitely and then just as quick go on to buy Brand Y for no other reason than that because they felt like it. That’s definitely something to think about when collecting user responses in surveys and the like when major decisions are going to be made based off of it.

It always gives me a thrill extracting meaning out of data through analysis, and figuring out the best way to present the findings for maximum impact!
