Variety is confusing in mate choice

Results showed that choosers made fewer proposals (positive dating decisions) at events in which the available dates showed greater variety across such attributes as age, height, occupation and education, and this effect was particularly strong when choosers were confronted with a larger number of opposite-sex speed daters.

Too much of a good thing? Variety is confusing in mate choice.

Frontal Cortex | Wired Science

Jonah Lehrer ne vjeruje da su Tversky i Gilovich u pravu, tj. da postoji “vruća ruka” i “hladna ruka” u košarci; ali potom ide još gora pristranost – prema kojoj su argumenti smišljeni za “grooming” a ne za dokazivanje istine.

Ethical Thinking Should be Rational AND Emotional | Psychology Today

How can you do the right thing? People are sometimes told: Be rational, not emotional. Such advice adopts the widespread assumption that reason and emotion are opposites. This opposition is particularly acute in ethics, where philosophers and psychologists have long debated the relative roles in ethical thinking of abstract inference and emotional intuitions. This debate concerns both the descriptive question about how people actually do think when they are making ethical judgments and the normative question of how they should think.

Cognitive-bias modification – Therapist-free therapy | The Economist

Evo konačno standarni posao za humanovce:

Cognitive-bias modification may put the psychiatrist’s couch out of business

Cognitive-bias modification (CBM) appears to be effective after only a few 15-minute sessions, and involves neither drugs nor the discussion of feelings. It does not even need a therapist. All it requires is sitting in front of a computer and using a program that subtly alters harmful thought patterns.

This simple approach has already been shown to work for anxiety and addictions, and is now being tested for alcohol abuse, post-traumatic-stress disorder and several other disturbances of the mind. It is causing great excitement among researchers.

By Wray Herbert Border Bias and Our Perception of Risk: Scientific American. Our mental maps of risk and safety rely too heavily on imaginary boundaries.
