For me, this blog falls under the category of "Why didn't I find this before?" David Mcraney (who describes himself as a a journalist who loves psychology, technology and the internet") writes a provocative blog called You Are Not So Smart where he posts thoughtful musings about common "misconceptions", such as:
- Most opinions are the result of years of rational, objective analysis.
- In romance, opposites attract.
- After you learn something new, you remember how you were once ignorant or wrong.
I've always wanted to have a psychological version of the great "Bad Astronomy" webpage, and this blog comes darn close, in a way.
(personal note: I found out about this blog through a great friend, Jim Hanna. Thanks Jim!)
