I found that immediately after posting actually. Children with this condition often suffer oral cavity damage both in and around the oral cavity (such as having bitten off the tip of their tongue) Mother of god.

Do you mean "status" as a sociological term?

comment Is Behaviorism incompatible with Cognitive Psychology?
An interesting (if absurd sounding) presentation of a behaviorist psychology professor of mine suggested the idea of "Behavior as a natural science". Behavior initially had all the appeal of "rigor" which cognitive models and pontification couldn't' solve, but I think we've moved past that.

comment Is procrastination greater when skill is low and rewards offer low status boost and does this lead to efficient task allocation in groups?
By the way I changed the original wording of this question from "Theory" to "Hypothesis". Theory should only be used to denote an established and or well tested concept in the field. The "common" definition of Theory is too watered down for a research oriented site.

I think personal hypothesis testing could possibly be an interesting tag, we would have to watch to ensure it didn't result in an excess of low quality "Okay, so this is what I think the brain does..." questions.
