Sidestepping the pitfalls of overconfidence with plausible deniability



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 10:53 AM PDT


Although confidence can serve as both a blessing and a curse, new research shows how people can reap the rewards without risking the social penalties for overconfidence.


Clues that suggest people are lying may be deceptive, study shows



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 06:29 AM PDT


The verbal and physical signs of lying are harder to detect than people believe, a study suggests.


Why don't we understand statistics? Fixed mindsets may be to blame



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 05:27 AM PDT


The first study of why people struggle to solve statistical problems reveals a preference for complicated rather than simpler, more intuitive solutions -- which often leads to failure in solving the problem altogether. The researchers suggest this is due to unfavorable methods of teaching statistics in schools and universities, and highlight the serious consequences when applied to professional settings like court cases.


How parenting affects antisocial behaviors in children

In a recent study of the parental caregiving environment, researchers found that within identical twin pairs, the child who experienced harsher behavior and less parental warmth was at a greater risk for developing antisocial behaviors.


Fake or real? New study finds consumers wary of manipulated photos



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 02:31 PM PDT


In the age of fake news and doctored photos, wary consumers are not nearly as gullible as one might presume. But the source of the images does not matter much as people evaluate what is fake and what is real, a study suggests.


Higher levels of urinary fluoride associated with ADHD in children



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 10:23 AM PDT


Higher levels of urinary fluoride during pregnancy are associated with more ADHD-like symptoms in school-age children.


Altruism can be trained



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 07:56 AM PDT


Mental training can effectively cultivate care, compassion and even altruistically motivated behavior psychologists have shown in a recent study.


Babies of overweight mothers may risk developing self-regulation problems



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 07:56 AM PDT


A mother's weight during early pregnancy may affect how well her baby is able to self-regulate during its first months and years of life. This is according to a study of more than 3100 Finnish women.


Chewing gum may be effective for delivering vitamins



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 07:56 AM PDT


Nearly 15 percent of all chewing gum varieties sold promise to provide health-enhancing supplements to users, so researchers studied whether two vitamin-supplemented products were effective at delivering vitamins to the body. Their results validate the concept of gum as an effective delivery system for at least some vitamins.


Muscular men prefer an unequal society

For men, physical strength and political attitudes are linked. This is not the case for women. New research shows that ancestral human instincts affect men's political reflections.
