I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment What causes lack of energy? The relative importance of testosterone versus emotional, genetic, and environmental factors
Welcome to the site Taal! Great job looking up the references. Before the answer was anecdotal, which we are still discussing how to handle on this site. It's great seeing you edit your answer as you learn more! However, edits don't need to be 'sequential'. You are allowed to edit previous things you wrote. I feel your answer would be improved greatly by creating one coherent (possibly shorter) answer, incorporating all you know thus far.

comment Is there a cognitive bias for ascribing agency to inanimate objects?
I don't feel this truly answers the question, and is rather anecdotal.

Could you motivate a bit where this question is coming from? Seems interesting though!

A meta review of 2010 seems like an accurate answer to me, thanks!
