- Abstract in English : This study explored preference of how people categorize unfamiliar settings using four variables, complexity, coherence, indentifiability, and mystery. Areas low in coherence and high in complexity are not preferred, while the role of mystery, in urban settings is highlighted by the most preferred urban nature category.
