Research Digest
  1. Contrary to popular psychological theory, believers in free will were no more generous or honest
    By Christian Jarrett. As ever, reality is refusing to conform to simple and intuitively appealing psychological theory.
  2. Brainwave study suggests sexual posing, but not bare skin, leads to automatic objectification
    By Alex Fradera. That seeing skin can rouse some sexual feeling, but doesn’t automatically make us see the person any less, seems to me to be a fairly decent and respectful way for our perceptual and cognitive architecture to be put together.
  3. Pilot study finds “smart drug” Aderall has limited benefits for healthy students, and may harm working memory
    By Emma Young. For the large numbers of students who report taking stimulants, these results suggest that they probably won’t do much to enhance their academic performance.
  4. A re-replication of a psychological classic provides a cautionary tale about overhyped science
    By Jesse Singal. If you wanted a poster child for the replication crisis and the controversy it has unleashed within the field of psychology, it would be hard to do much better than Fritz Strack’s findings.
  5. Preliminary evidence suggests women may be better role jugglers than men
    By Emma Young. Women took only the positive from work into the home (and vice versa), while for men it was the stress that spilt over.

Dacă faci o greșeală, recunoaște-o. Orice încercare de a o ascunde se va întoarce în cele din urmă împotriva ta. La un moment dat pacientul va simți că nu ești sincer și actul terapeutic va suferi. Mai mult, admiterea deschisă a greșelii este un model bun pentru pacienți și un semn în plus al importanței care o au pentru tine.
