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 It is unclear what the purported 'research at Cambridge university' was, but it could have been an unpublished PhD.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).

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.

comment Any research into “intelligence” really out of sync with iq?
What research? That it happens? On their differences? What causes it? Any preliminary research/motivation that lead you to writing this question?

comment Searching for gender stereotype questionnaire specific to central europe
Rather than reposting a duplicate, you can edit your original question (as I did for you now), ever so slightly improving on it, or including new stuff you encountered in your search.

comment Is there any scientific evidence that nootropics improve synaptic plasticity / learning ability?
I undeleted/reopened this old question of yours, and copied your entire newly phrased question here, as it is an improvement over the old one. This way, the existing answer can be kept. I do not feel they warrant two separate questions (and the old one was rightfully deleted). I suggest you await answers to this question before asking another on the same topic.

comment Do characters in a dream have their own separate thoughts or identity?
Welcome to CogSci David! Personal anecdotal evidence does not suffice as an answer on this site, thus will be removed after some time, unless you could link back your interpretation to existing research in an edit of your answer.

comment What brain areas are involved in memorizing sections of a song?
Not all those sources are incorporated in your answer. I would only list those you refer to, or disambiguate between 'other' potentially relevant papers, and the ones you provided a summary/reference of.
