comment Does straightening your back increase confidence?
"increases testosterone and cortisol levels which leads to, among other things, a greater tolerance of risk in general" is an awfully limited definition of confidence. Certainty in your abilities (and they have to actually be your ablities, not imagined ones) is somewhat correlated with what is mentioned but far from the definition of confidence. Power and confidence aren't the same either. Someone can very easily, and quite correctly, be very confident they are powerless and uncertain and should take no risks.

comment Is it possible to create artificial thoughts in a childs mind
To be fair, that's an extraordinarily unlikely method in which a false memory would be implanted in a child. In addition, that's really more about the biological basis for memory than false memories per se. They demonstrated with false memories to prove how robust the method is, not to uniquely demonstrate false memories.

comment What is the psychology behind male pornographic actors having larger than average penises?
Artem, the question evolved a bit since my answer but you're right, the question doesn't exactly address that as male consumers. I believe the male consumers angle probably has less to do with attraction toward penises at all and more to do with visualizing oneself in the male role.

comment Do graphemes relate to communication and thought disorders?
You might want to read The International Book of Dyslexia: A Cross Language Comparison and Practice Guide edited by Ian Smythe. Searching dyslexia and languages turns up tons of stuff that's pretty easy to find. But that's not my answer since I'm arguing you don't need research to know there will be differences and you would only really care what they were if you had an odd notion about disorders.
