You are absolutely correct...

When I jumped from $80K to $100K, my lifestyle didn't go up 20%, it doubled. Because general living (today), requires around 60 minimum, and 80 to enjoy life, but that extra $20 on top made it feel like I doubled my income in terms of the possibilities it opened up, and ability to make my bills, etc.

These numbers (20, 60, 80, 100) etc are all historic for me and so may have also been associated with specific "bubbles" and things. That is purely anecdotal.
