comment Is it easy in languages other than English to read a paragraph where all but the first and last letters of every word have been rearranged?
Regardless of this being an interesting question, it (and the text posted in this question) seem to be an urban legend/internet meme called typoglycemia. It is unclear what the purported 'research at Cambridge university' was, but it could have been an unpublished PhD.

@Gary Thank you for the link to the book! I was unaware she published this.

comment How do we learn to count syllables?
Interesting and likely relevant, however, this answer does not directly address the question "how do humans learn this skill without being taught?".

comment Are some of the new age proponents in psychosis?
You question got closed since it is unclear. Perhaps read a bit more into the Wikipedia article on Psychosis and refine your question with what you learned. You can still edit your question, after which it can be reopened.

comment Which paper or book from cognitive science do you think everyone should read or know about, and why?
Relevant Meta question on whether or not we welcome this type of questions, and if so, how to structure it: meta.cogsci.stackexchange.com/q/36/21. Given this, I personally feel the scope of the question is too broad. I welcome list-type questions myself, but only when well defined (as you can find examples in the meta post).

Focused question on terminology.

comment Why being ignored is 'painful' for human beings?
A lot of assumptions being made in this question without referring to any source, and a lot of tangential unfocused questions. Please focus on one. If you are after verification whether there is a concept/terminology for this behavior, start there. If there is, you can go from there to find documentation on it and ask your subsequent questions. Edited to reflect this.

comment Why do people want to be parents?
The way you currently phrase the question is entirely opinion based, and not rooted in any interest in, or knowledge about psychology or biology. This makes the question in its current form not a good fit for this site: (1) it is too broad thus hard to pinpoint what type of answer would actually constitute an answer (this site is not for dicussions), and (2) attracts opinion based answers, as opposed to scientific answers. You can still edit your question, in which case it might be reopened.

comment Do yellow colour light have psychological effect on human mind?
I don't feel the current listed close reason is adequate. I do agree however the question needs more initial research and hence wouldn't have been surprised for it to be closed as 'Unclear what you are asking'. In case you edit the question, let me know and I will reopen.

comment Does spanking a child teach them that it's ok for another person to touch them against their will?
This might be suitable at Parenting, in case it does not get any answers here. To me personally, the question is on topic, albeit it might be improved when embedded within literature.

comment Is it possible to present/perceive information objectively?
Possibly more suitable for Philosophy, but will await what the community thinks.
