I think the above data may be misleading, and may understate the importance of the title.
Maybe as in a well-constructed title encourages searchers to read the snippet?
Then, as in Robert's observation, it simply takes longer to read the snippet.
It kind of just reinforces what we've been saying for years: title and snippet/description are very important and work hand-in-hand to get the click.
