I wanted to get your opinion on http://www.scienceofpeople.com/. Do you think the research is sound or is it gimmicky pop science?

My reply: I have no idea. But since I see no evidence on the website, I’ll assume it’s pseudoscience until I hear otherwise. I won’t believe it until it has the endorsement of Susan T. Fiske.

P.S. Oooh, that Fiske slam was so unnecessary, you say. But she still hasn’t apologized for falling asleep on the job and greenlighting himmicanes, air rage, and ages ending in 9.
