    Marijuana isn't a teratogen to humans:

    It isn't even a teratogen to our closest cousins. (Well all right they didn't try it on sheep, but chimpanzees are the next best thing:)

    Schizotypal creativity in the sciences is unlikely. I would expect it across the arts, since nearly identical personality traits predict success across artistic fields, but scientific creativity taps...

    There are many other studies with similar findings.







    I could quote you several more studies if you were interested. Of course, publication bias remains a problem in the field, but,...

    I'm not surprised that they have such an ancient origin - arthropods are considerably older than mammals. Bats might have been reasonable hosts, with their large, communal sleeping arrangements, but...

    I like Poland and every Pole I've ever met. But frankly, outside of Europe no one really notices Poland. (In fact, many people in larger Anglophone countries barely notice people on the other side of...

    I don't know that intuitive leaps would be expected of someone who isn't intuitive; INFP would have made more sense. The MBTI isn't useless, but I do wish more people knew about the HEXACO.

    I loved the MBTI growing up, but it's badly outdated, and there's really no justification for using it anymore. But I am very high in Openness to Experience, and very low in Emotionality as measured...

    Fascinating - where would modern Europeans (or anyone else in the modern world) be on that principal component plot?

    Given the high heritability for IQ (near .7) the explained variance will likely increase in the future. There will always be room for old-fashioned methods, but this story is far from...
