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.
