British writer and broadcaster Alex Bellos set up a website and asked people to vote for their favorite numbers. More than 44,000 did. The winner? The number 7. Throughout history, our strongest emotional reaction is to the number 7, says Bellos. But why? He thinks that we like 7 because it’s the only number between 2 and 10 that is neither a multiple nor a factor of any other. “It somehow stands apart from the others,” he says.

  • From antiquity to the present day, much of popular culture revolves around 7. There are 7 Days, 7 Seas, 7 Brides, 7 Sages, 7 Sisters, 7 Dwarves, 7 Wonders of the Ancient World…
  • The Official New 7 Wonders of the World are the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal, Petra, the Colosseum, Chichen Itza, Christ Redeemer and Machu Picchu.
  • The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two: Some Limits on Our Capacity for Processing Information by George A. Miller of Princeton University is one of the most highly cited papers in psychology. It is the basis of Miller’s Law, which argues that the number of objects an average human can hold in working memory is 7 ± 2.
