- Would students choose these 10 or would they argue for others?
- Some of the terms used in the list probably aren't in textbooks (e.g. reactance? Herd Mentality?). Are there terms similar to these concepts that could be used to be more precise?
- How were these "top ten" chosen? Is there a way to do this empirically?
One of the (many!) books on my psych. reading list is Cialdini's Influence - I bet it has a much more focused and researched list of "faulty thinking"
Note: I think someone tweeted a link to this Top 10 list, but now I can't find who so I can't give them credit. Help?
By the way, the picture attached to this email shows "Placebo Bands", which are, alas, sold out at the moment (I wanted to buy them for my psychology club!). Any enterprising teachers/clubs out there want to get in the ground floor of a new market? :)
