Editor’s Selections: Absolutes, Profile Pictures, and Parking Spaces

This week:

  • At PopPsych, Jesse Marczyk uses recent research to demonstrate the challenges in applying adaptive models across the board. What does that mean? Essentially, dealing in absolutes when it comes to human behavior is likely to lead to false conclusions. There is no one-size fits all explanation than can be attached to behavior.
  • At the Research Digest, Christian Jarrett explores cultural representations of the individual via the lens of Facebook. It seems the nature of your profile picture can be suggestive of larger social structures.
  • Some people view their cars as a private, personal space. But what about parking spaces? An interesting post at Science Storiented investigates some older research on territoriality - as it relates to drivers and their parking spaces.

    Until next time, folks. I’ll be back next week with more from anthropology, philosophy, and research.

      Strange but true. Your resource is expensive. At least it could be sold for good money on its auction!…

I love the data anyone produce right here in addition to can’t hold out in order to examine once i go back home. I’m surprised in just how quick your site filled in our cellular phone.. I’m not really applying , simply just 3G. Anyway, great web site!

      Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be
      on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries
      that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people
      could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
