3 On Complexity: How to Measure It? 4 Instead, it is an attribute ascribed by observers according to the number of distinctions that they are able to make in the domain in which they interact with that particular situation (that is what we mean by behavioural distinctions). For instance, drivers who know nothing about mechanics see relatively little complexity in the car they are driving. But the same car seen by engineers is far more complex in terms of the number of parts they are able to distinguish while repairing it.
