comment Why do humans have sex in private?
@Tiberiu-IonuțStan No, the question is not about law, obeying it etc. It is about a one or two layer deeper thing. Needless to say, there are many positive feedback loops.

Anyway, why so downvoted? While I'm not convinced, the answer is far from from being "not useful". (Perhaps a long time ago sex was dirty.)

comment Why do humans have sex in private?
@DavidWiner I'm not disgusted by pubic hair nor genitals (as long as they are clean, healthy, perhaps young - and for that traits your explanation works).

I'm not convinced. People are not disgusted by looking at other's having sex (unless they are their parents, which is a different story).

Thanks, you rise a few good points. However, my question is not on sexual norms, but unwillingness to have sex in public.

comment Are there any personality theories that use the scientific method?
@ForbiddenOverseer "Purely based on scientific grounds" is not a well-defined statement. Intuition is an intrinsic part of science and you cannot go without it (you need to ground every theory somewhere). Perhaps what you mean is personality traits based less on ah hoc assumptions.

comment Is the Neanderthal Theory of Autistic brain a reasonable scientific theory?
Avoiding eye contact: who have proven that Neanderthals do it? When it comes to aggression: go into an elevator with strangers and see if neurotypicals are searching for the eye contact :). There are other thing more that speculative.

comment Can one “understand” emotions, yet not “feel” them?
This thing is know as Mary's room, when talking about senses (not feelings); but the problems are largely equivalent.

As a side not, computational analogues (esp. number of bits) can be very misleading when it comes to human mind.

The question seems to have nothing to do with long vs short term memory.

comment For depression diagnoses, does one make a clear distinction between endogenous and exogenous causes of depression?
+1 for a nice question, but I don't understand if you care for the distinction inside-outside or brain-mind. For example, does (lack of) performing psychical activity or exposure to sunlight count as your "exogenous" or "exogenous"? Most likely, most of the time causes are combined. However, I am very interesting in more solid findings.
