Three-way light sockets

I often have one or more lamps with three-way bulb sockets, but rarely bother purchasing a three-way bulb.  One might think that this results in some unpredictable behavior when trying to switch the light, as the next pull or turn may or may not turn it on or off.  But if you always turn two notches then the bulb will turn on / off on one of those notches and the behavior is predictable.
