Security+ logical contradiction

On Page 98 of GCGA textbook says that password length causes passwords to become more insecure because it’s harder to remember, therefore people are more likely to write them down. Will the test honor this statement? A few practice tests I’ve encountered implied more length equals more security.

Any insight would be appreciated?

Does it really say that? Very odd. In a world with password managers and SSO in relatively common use in corporate environments, that just makes no sense. I would love to see research indicating that long passwords are more likely to be compromised but I’m pretty sure it doesn’t exist.
