comment Why do people talk fast in presentations when nervous?
This line of thought seems quite reasonable and in my opinion does more towards answering the question than the currently accepted answer. It could further be improved by linking directly to the specific publications you are referring to, potentially seeing whether their findings can be placed more in context or not.

Grammar/spelling.

Added link to prevent updates to the question from invalidating this answer.

comment Can humans be reduced to a function?
Interesting question, but that is a rather dodgy source you used there ... "Get Your Grade or Your Money Back!" I recommend you update it to e.g. refer directly to the reference used within the article?

comment Can humans be reduced to a function?
I feel this is a bit tangential to the question, but an interesting side note nonetheless.

comment Can humans be reduced to a function?
I like this answer as well, but believe the last paragraph is a bit too fast in jumping to conclusions. "Everything we know about the real world is deterministic" First of all your examples already demonstrate this is not the case. Second, a lot of 'determined' behavior is measured using statistical significance; interpreting such results as true determinism is misusing statistics. Third, there is a lot about the real world we do not know. Not unsurprisingly there are still many debates about 'free will' and similar concepts where there is insufficient evidence available at this point.

comment Why is Internet Addiction Disorder not listed in the DSM-5 manual?
If you elaborate on this (including a further short description of the source you link to, and preferably linking directly to the study it reports on as well), this could be a suitable answer.

Care to link directly to 'the website' and other sources you relied on to write this question?

This combined with virtual reality goggles I suppose would work.

comment How can the cognitive distortion “disqualifying / rejecting the positive” be overcome?
This site is still beta, as was it when you asked the first question, thus some questions unfortunately do tend to go unanswered. As it is phrased now though it is much better than the last question (which I deleted for you). Perhaps you have more success this time. While you wait I recommend you look for an answer yourself, browse the internet. In case you find an answer you can post an answer yourself. In case you find more details, you can incorporate those in an edit to your question in which case it might attract new eyes, or others know better how to help you out.

comment How does one internalize the delayed reward of exercise?
You should try framing this a bit more from a scientific perspective as opposed to a personal perspective, otherwise you risk this question getting closed.

comment Some questions about the consumer behavior of women and cosmetics
I recommend you do some initial research first and focus on one more specific question. Stack Exchange adheres to a 'one question' per question format, as 'some questions' will be too broad to adequately answer.

comment is it possible to think without language?
I'm almost considering moving the second part of his question to a separate question. This answer would be suited as an answer there. :/

comment is it possible to think without language?
@val If you are interested in multiple questions you can always ask multiple. In this case, are you mainly interested in the title, or the context? Please update your question to make this clear. It seems most answers focused on the title, however, so possibly it is most fruitful to phrase it as such.

@splint He does seem to hold a position at UCLA, although I can't find a specific personal page.

comment Subliminal Persuasion: best chances of success
@MaxdeMooij Have you read the resources on the related (duplicate) question? "I'm curious what the best ways are to influence someone's decision making" Surely if they study subliminal messages they will describe this in their methodology?
