comment What are the psychological differences in camelCase and underscore_case programming conventions?
P.s. I never claimed to have a scientific answer. But at the time of writing, it was the only blog post on the topic taking published research into consideration, hence the claim "I will try to take you through a semi-scientific explanation".

comment What are the psychological differences in camelCase and underscore_case programming conventions?
Funny to run into this post of mine on CogSci. :) Did you read the referenced article in the post and the follow-up study I wrote after? At the time of writing that was all I could find, so I wouldn't say 'a surprising amount', but there definitely are a few relevant papers out there, most notably those I blogged about last time I checked.

comment Are there any open task sets available to assess workload using secondary task measures?
If not I can still just export the particular tasks I suppose, possibly manually (if that would be allowed).

comment Are there any open task sets available to assess workload using secondary task measures?
Would I be able to easily run Inquisit side-by-side with the primary task, just to trigger the secondary tasks? I would prefer having control over how to show the tasks for minimal intrusion into the actual work environment of the user. Same question for E-prime.

comment How valid are reaction times collected from online studies?
Welcome to CogSci Andy! That would great! To improve this answer, would you mind adding a short synopsis of your recent publication?

comment Spreading Activation Theory
There is no harm in asking two separate questions. Perhaps you should split this question into two? (You can always edit this one, and pose a new one.)

@AliceD I considered that as well. It is one of those 'not fully a dupe', but the answer of the duplicate question most likely does answer the OP's question. If not, the OP is free to update his question taking this new information into account to disambiguate more clearly after which it can be reopened.

comment How to computationally model the Wisconsin Card Sorting task?
@JeromyAnglim Have these edits addressed the issue raised by Artem? If so, I believe this comment thread can be removed.

comment Comparison between IO psychology, Arbeitspsychologie and Psychologie du travail et des organisations
Could you provide some background information on how you came into contact with these theories? What do you already know/where does the confusion stem from?

comment How to know whether a methodological technique is quantitative or qualitative?
Good question, except that comparing assessment tools (e.g. NASA TLX) to statistical methods (e.g. ANOVA) is comparing apples to oranges. I suppose the real question is whether quantifying subjective data through scales should be considered qualitative or quantitative data.

comment How to know whether a methodological technique is quantitative or qualitative?
I'm still wondering whether NASA TLX can be considered a 'continuous scale'. Not arguing that it generally is considered to be ...

comment Does daily software development enhance the cognitive capacity of a person?
@AbelMelquiadesCallejo I still believe it is too broad. I believe it would help if you'd refine 'cognitive capacity', as Krysta pointed out earlier.

comment Should psychological checks be as frequent as physical checks to evaluate a patient's condition?
A warm welcome from me as well! However, introducing your bio here in the comments to motivate your answer does nothing but causing confusion (and smells a bit like misuse of appeal to authority). The OP agreed that the linked to question is a duplicate, so let's stick with that. If you are interested in sharing your expertise there is nothing preventing you from posting (and answering!) your own question in a new post, the way you interpreted it! Hope to see you around.

comment What kind of cognitive psych journals are receptive to clinicians without any publications?
These comments warrant an answer. Perhaps someone in this thread could summarize the comments and post them as a generalizable answer?

comment When a group of people laugh, people will instinctively look at the person they feel closest to in that group
Could you at a minimum reference this 'common claim'? Initial research on your own part is also more than welcomed.

comment Is being less emotional a bad thing for motivation?
Welcome to CogSci! This is more a comment than an answer (as are other of your posts which I've since converted to comments). The OP specifically asked for more detailed studies. Once you have 50 reputation you can comment on other people's posts. You can get 50 reputation by getting 5 up votes on an answer (look for other up voted answers to see what is expected, and be sure to read the help section), or 10 up votes on questions.

comment What is the influence of “effort put into pursuing wealth” on happiness?
@Wouter, they are simply the references listed in the publication he links to. No point in repeating 124 references out of context. Without specifying why references are relevant, there is no point in listing them in the first place.

comment What is the influence of “effort put into pursuing wealth” on happiness?
Since you do not mention all of the references listed, could you please take out the ones not pointed to in this post, and remove the others? The full reference list is still available in your link either way.

comment Are there any pragmatic uses of hallucinogens?
Could you please add a full citation, rather than just a link and 'a paper'?

comment What causes someone to frequently see particular patterns of digits when they look at a clock?
@Dr.Bronx It is not only happening to you, ... but you might be the only one who is concerned about it though. As an exercise however, it might be interesting to calculate the percentage of 'special times' you recognize, out of all possible combinations. Is '13:00' special? Is '13:05'?
