    The value of IQ

    Hey Darque, I appreciate your approach. It's been a while since I trawled through the literature on this, and I cbf doing it again right now, but I'll give the general conclusions I arrived at (so just the conclusions/impressions, not the evidence or argument). I agree that in a sense...

    The value of IQ

    I've looked through IQ tests, but don't believe in functions really. Nevertheless, there is no social or emotional component. They're generally aimed at capturing the core processing speed, flexibility, reliability, max complexity of computation/operation, and pattern recognition. IQ tests...

    Excuses for bullying.

    I work with children and have to deal with this stuff on the daily. Typically when I take child aside, I will first ask them what happened and why they think it happened. Often they give a very one-sided version of events, especially if they're younger. At 16, your daughter probably has a good...

    Racism is innate

    Okay fair, but that's one person. Is their view even mainstream? You're talking about American sociologists as if it's a cabal. Is this one person representative of the entire field? Also, what that person said is only wrong if you assume they mean that biological mechanisms are irrelevant...

    Racism is innate

    The way you speak about a whole field as if it's a monolith is disturbing. You don't state or address anything that they say, you just invoke them as a boogeyman. This is exactly what you did earlier in the thread about biologists and their views on racism. I'm open to the shortcomings of...

    Quality complaint about moderator

    Listen to Polaris for some much-needed context and perspective people. The forum is better than it has been the entire time I've been here. The new members that are taking umbrage at the moderation are pretty good members, even if they're on the wrong side of this issue. I was in Pols...

    Forming new habits

    My view is similar to Seracs. People tend to think of willpower and habit-forming as absolute, but gradual improvement over time is king. It's about improving your baseline and adjusting your lifestyle, not about suddenly becoming a perfect specimen overnight.

    P-hacking and scientific integrity

    How universities cover up compromised studies is another layer of fuckery that needs to be overcome. I thought this video was a good case study.

    Racism is innate

    Okay, thanks for your honesty. I genuinely appreciate it even if I feel like I had to drag it out of you. Most people that share your views have continued to hide them ("trolling", but also actually believing so not really...). Your honesty is refreshing. Now I have a concern that you're...

    Racism is innate

    If you cared about furthering discussion on this issue you'd address expert conclusions instead of side-stepping them. You come here as a guru on your pet topic. You cherry-pick the work of other people where it agrees with you while leaving their conclusions conspicuously absent. You have not...
