People With Hard To Pronounce Names Untrustworthy?

People are judging each other all the time, we all know it. Now scientists say they've found that we trust strangers with easier-to pronounce names. Researchers from the University of California say when someone has an easy-to-pronounce name they come across as more familiar, and safer. Researcher even found that people thought claims attributed to easy-to-pronounce names were more likely to be true. Researchers say, "When we encounter new information, how easy or difficult it is to process plays and important role in all sorts of situations. For example, research shows people think food additives with easier names are safer than those with difficult names."
