My dissertation dealt with the topic of person x situation interactions across different study designs and timescales. For the three manuscripts, see the linked threads below!

This guy is often shown as the illustration of the Dunning-Kruger effect. Supposedly MacArthur Wheeler, the 'invisible' bank robber. But he doesn't fit the wanted ad at all. Is he a different incompetent bank robber? I guess there are no pictures of MacArthur Wheeler?

⭕ Red Teams ⭕ are undervalued, but are vital for organizations dealing with adversaries and dynamic environments. This is why Red Teams were recently used by OpenAI in their development of GPT-4.

If there's one brain disease I swear all psychologists have, it's one that causes them to spend years of their life developing their own scale, then publishing it without an accessible, final version anywhere in the manuscript or online.

There is a worrying trend in meta-science where authors are unwilling or unable to state which articles are subject to which critiques, as if only the prevalence of issues across articles is relevant and not the specific instances of these issues.

I recall reading a paper, probably before the pandemic, about the myriad ways in which SES is measured, that there was little content overlap or convergent evidence between them, and yet they were treated as equivalent measures of "SES". Does anyone recall the paper?

Sexuelle Belästigung, Demütigung oder Mobbing - dafür ist offenbar auch der Wissenschaftsbetrieb besonders anfällig. Ein Grund, so Historikerin @cgpublichistory: das "sehr starke Abhängigkeitsverhältnis" zwischen Profs und Mitarbeitenden.

Our findings reveal that migrants receive 4.4 percentage points fewer responses. Moreover, their responses contain fewer slot offers, are shorter, and are less encouraging. This discrimination likely perpetuates existing inequalities for disadvantaged children. 3/9
