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.

comment How is it possible for psychometricians to develop IQ tests for people smarter than them?
It's important to note that these tests have evolved generally over decades with through research and dozens of people constructing the test. A single person couldn't easily construct such a test but that's not the situation.
