It seems a lot like a topic list for the "Nightly News". I guess those actual words are used, but usually in such a general way. Yet, I suppose the individual experience will be immediately drawn out by the mere mention of those words. There must be some study revealing that experiences with these "descriptives" are so personal so as to be distracting and therefore become "results skewers". The same reason the "Nightly News" wants them *in.
