Weird text formatting on this site
Hey y'all... If you see weird text formatting on this site, like enlarged text sizes for specific words or phrases, that's not me — it's a Weebly technical error that just randomly enlarged portions of old content on the site.
I would never litter a post or essay with enlarged words or phrases — I'm not a crazy person. I've fixed a couple of spots I noticed (e.g. on my About page, which was so embarrassing...), and please email me at email@example.com if you notice any others.
Note: I am not talking about my haiku about Dobby. The variation in text size there is deliberate, carries substantive meaning, and I see it as a breathtaking innovation in haiku construction... (I assume it's not my innovation.)
Again, please let me know if you see anything – thanks!
Is social psychology self-correcting?
I have a new essay up at Heterodox Academy discussing the claim that science is self-correcting. I also dig a bit more into what we mean by "bias".
As a reminder, Heterodox Academy is a motley crew of scholars concerned about ideological conformity and intolerance in modern academia. We're privileged to have Jon Haidt, Steven Pinker, Phil Tetlock, Judith Curry, Scott Lilienfeld, Amy Wax, Lee Jussim, Jarret Crawford, and many other outstanding scholars.
I offer some 3 am musings on the possibility.
I wrote this essay last night after reading about survival-relevant memory research (within the broader affective memory paradigm.)
New article in Pacific Standard
Angela Chen wrote a nice article on our BBS paper over at Pacific Standard Magazine. The article digs into some specific issues that have not been discussed before in general media, like bias in how we measure openness to experience and other variables.
The Leon Project
This is the biggest thing I've been working on this year. Read about it here.
