Thinking, Fast and Slow

The Cortex Podcast did an episode on this:

  • everyone always overestimates their own contribution to any kind of partner work
    • if you ask a couple how much they contribute, it’s always more than 100% at all
  • ”Replication crisis”: a lot of medicine and social sciences studies can’t, or have never been attempted, to be replicated
    • Grey would have all of his students stand up and flip a coin. Tails sits down, heads stands. Just mathematically, one of them will be like “wow heck, I flipped four heads in a row”. I thousands of phd students do their experiments, just by chance some would get impressive results. Doesn’t mean they can be replicated.
