Yes, it's definitely more human to take a simple formula that fits in a 
small space and explode it into a network of little components with long 
names for the sake of reassuring themselves on the basis that it's more 
visual (so it must be easier, isn't it?) and more verbose (so it must be 
easier isn't it?) and then use all the placebo effect necessary to make 
spiderwebs of long names _become_ easier than the simple formula.

This is for the benefit of those users who define themselves as more human 
than the others because they say so.
