comment Does self-compassion have negative consequences?
I feel that, as it is currently written, this question is too vague and doesn't have enough of a basis in cognitive science as written. Can you reword it to make it more research driven?

comment What are the main theories that account for why some people like X and others not?
I'll be sad if this gets closed.... yes, it's broad, but I think there could be a useful overview answer summarizing some of the concepts here...

comment If a human brain would be placed inside that of an animal: Could it talk?
This seems to be the best answer to me. I like what's answer but I think one would have to totally relearn the muscle moments to speak in another animal's body (assuming that were even remotely possible) and I think that's a near non-starter.

comment Psychological problem with glasses and hats on head?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is too localized and I do not believe it is answerable in its current form. Unfortunately I believe this is far too specific to this one case and it will be impossible for you to get an answer from users here. Can you make your question more general?

comment Can animals think intuitively?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is more of a philosophical question than a cognitive science question. If the quality is improved and it is made more specific it might be on topic at our Philosophy site.

comment Cognitive Dissonance
I have edited this question. I think now it's probably "Too Localized" rather than "Off Topic", but we'll see what the community thinks.

comment Water Jug Problem in AI
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about filling water jugs and not psychology, neuroscience, or cognitive science.

comment Water Jug Problem in AI
is this a homework question? I am not really sure how this is on-topic for this site. I would vote to close but my vote is binding, so I'll let the community decide.

comment Why do scientists say brains are faster than computers?
I have undeleted this post because it had one other undelete vote, and I think it's a good answer to this question. It's a less-detailed but more-cited version of anongoodnurse's answer. Don't be too swayed by a single downvote :-) If you do really want this deleted please use the flag link on this answer and ask for us to delete it again. Also, +1 for a good answer.

comment Assuming everything has conciousness, can technical hardware have higher level of conciousness than a rock?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about philosophy and not cognitive science.

comment What makes us look into camera lens when we're being filmed?
For what it's worth I often take photographs of animals, specifically birds. I have noticed the same behavior. They seem to understand that the camera lens is like a giant eye and will consistently look at it/ keep watching it. It's likely that it's foreign to them and they feel threatened by it but they act differently towards a lens than any other object I have seen them react to...

comment Reference for beginners: psychology
Unfortunetly I have had to close this question because shopping type questions aren't on topic for us here on Stack Exchange. If you'd like further recommendations, consider joining us in chat where book questions like this are permitted, even encouraged: we have a whole room for them

comment How can employee anxiety over poor evaluation be avoided by management?
@Lohoris The data dump of Gamification would have that question. I'll try to do download that and paste the content of it here in the next few days.

comment SSRI Medications and Problem solving
Hello ahmed, welcome to the site! Unfortunetly as per our policy I have had to place your question on hold as "self help" questions are not permitted by our community. Do you think this question could be reworded to be more generic and not as personal? Thanks!

I also think this should be migrated to UX

comment Which of ML classifiers do humans use?
@Dikran, "Cognitive Sciences" on Stack Exchange does indeed cover machine learning, the "s" in "Sciences" means we're a multidisciplinary site :-)

comment Why do people remember things when they stop trying to remember?
OK @ThinksALot. This also appears to be a dupe of: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/676 and cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/975/…;. If you feel that's wrong please edit your question and explain why. Thanks!

comment Why do people remember things when they stop trying to remember?
Nope, this is a duplicate. Incubation is the term for memory recall also.

comment Are the incidents of autism spectrum disorder on the rise, or is there an increase due to better definition of diagnostic criteria?
I'd be glad to give this question a bounty if you'd like one Beofett! Just let me know.

comment Do repressed memories exist?
This is great information, but doesn't really address the question of repressed memories I don't think.
