UX: ‘Next’ or ‘More’ buttons

I’ve been thinking about pagination buttons and specifically the verbiage for the next button.

Hitting a button labeled “Next” feels laborious, tedious like the viewers are sifting through a list to find something.

Hitting a button labeled “More” button may appease the viewer, making them feel content with what they have seen so far. This type of button may get a user curious, like peaking around the corner just to see what more is there.

I’m thinking people respond better to a “More” button.

However, this really depends on the type of pagination being used. If the buttons are a paired “back/next” buttons, using “more” is probably awkward.

Or am I totally off on this?
