The Scent of Bad Psychology

Link post

In­spired by the psy­cho­logy rep­lic­a­tion quiz, I’ve come up with four rules to tell bull­shit stud­ies in psy­cho­logy from real ones:

1. The rule of antisignificance

2. The rule of Taleb’s grandma

3. The rule of multiplicity

4. The rule of sil­ic­one boobs

And fi­nally, a reason why this could mean that there’s a brighter fu­ture for good psy­cho­logy re­search.
