Anyone know what psychological principles are at work here?

I would think that because you are supposed to be answering math problems quickly, when you see "pick between 12 and 5" your brain just automatically does a math problem as "12-5=7". That can be the only logical reason it's "between 12 and 5" and not the other way around.
