We Only Love the "-est"

What is it about human beings that makes us only love the "-est?" The biggest

or the smallest (for example).

We also love the oldest and the newest (or youngest). We love the fastest and the slowest. We love the loudest and the softest. We love the darkest and the lightest.

We are not so keen on the "-er." If you are only bigger or smaller, faster or slower, darker or lighter, louder or softer, that's not impressive enough. We only really love the "-est."

What are you "-est" at?
