And I thought the Darth Vader post in the Paul Kimmage thread was good...

Absolutely which is why I try and be as open minded as possible and which is why I can also understand people's reactions. There is a difference between blind opinion and opinion developed by understanding both points of view.

Lots of people coming out the woodwork. Hello. Why don't you post more often and contribute to people's enjoyment and increase people's information on this forum like I try and do rather than sniping.

I'm not sure where this came from, but I had to pick you up on a couple of bits... & trying not to get too far off topic...
You're first study is covered in immense detail by Kahneman. Read this, but it's a wee bit more complex & lots more interesting than you suggest.

It's somewhere between tremendously difficult & fantastically easy to change minds: it depends how you do it. The studies you quote are covered, again, by Kahneman & your inference isn't all that accurate. Pick the right technique & you can change almost anyone's mind on anything: it's actually scary how weakly we hold beliefs... Milgram & Stanford are pretty useful start points, but there's loads more. I can send details if you like...

WRT to associating a bit of the brain with psychopathy: you know that most neuroimaging uses fMRI & you know about salmon, or was it trout? It's a science in its infancy. There are fascinating outcomes, but don't put too much weight on them! You, of course, know that post hoc ergo propter hoc is an oft used piece of reasoning here too....

The dopamine hypothesis for psychosis is, at best, a bit wobbly, so best not to quote it as fact.

I haven't seen the final study, but the title causes me to be slightly concerned.

That's all for now. & I still haven't worked out how this relates to Hoy...
Still prob best to PM if you want further stuff on these studies: I haven't found the psychology section of Pro Race yet...


1. I find your tone pompous and self aggrandizing especially as I am just handing out some interesting info which people can take as they will. Tailwind gave a small in and I expanded with some notes on a topic I find fascinating.
2. Thanks but I have covered Kahneman and Tversky and many others at a top university and it is interesting and useful stuff.
3. I am not going to cover immense detail and accuracy in a thread. I am neither qualified to do so and people wouldn't read it.
4. Like with most things, there is no 100% right answer, however that doesn't mean you can't mention points.
5. You want to talk derivatives? I assure you I will be helpful and debating rather than take your tone.
6. Your blog hasn't been updated since October 2012 - the time it would take you to reply to me is about the time it would take to enter a new post.
7. Happy non-farms Friday to you.
