comment How much sleep is required to restore maximum cognitive functioning?
I closed this question as I think it indeed is too broad, you could narrow it down and already look up some initial resources. You mention 'the internet points to some very basic conclusions', which ones? Perhaps verify first whether those are correct and ask about that? I started a discussion in chat since it got so many up votes, so others might overrule me. For a more focused example of a sleep-related question you could check out: cogsci.stackexchange.com/q/868/21

comment How is history of psychology taught around the world, and if it is not, why not?
This is a nice example of what might turn out to be a good 'list' question: meta.cogsci.stackexchange.com/q/36/21 Perhaps we should stick to different approaches per answer, listing all countries which follow a similar approach, adding possible exceptions?

comment Would the Milgram Experiment results be replicated in Eastern cultures?
@AsheeshR In case this answer doesn't fully answer the question or you need further clarification, you are more than encouraged to discuss this in the comments here. You also don't need to accept it if the question is unanswerable as it stands, however you could consider 'no such studies currently exist' also to be an answer.

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.

comment Does identifying a student's sensory learning style and exploiting it result in significantly better performance?
Could you motivate a bit where this question is coming from? Seems interesting though!
