@BenBrocka Tetrachromacy is common in animals. This question is solely about humans.

comment What is the definition of sanity? How can I prove someone either sane or insane?
-1 First: you ask two questions at the same time. Second, for definitions please ask Google or Wikipedia. It's time to ask only after they don't satisfy you (e.g. "What is the definition of XXX in the context of YYY. I checked it in Wikipedia but it seems to contradict with ZZZ").

comment Is procrastination greater when skill is low and rewards offer low status boost and does this lead to efficient task allocation in groups?
@StevenJeuris: It's less funny than it sounds, as the best are these who can do task very well (its not possible to get anything perfectly) and in a finite time (see e.g. matt.might.net/articles/ways-to-fail-a-phd).

Actually, perfectionists tend to be procrastinators. And perfectionist usually are damn good at sth.

comment Performance of a group solving a cognitive task: How does it scale?
@JeromyAnglim: I am the most interested in low-level cognitive tasks, esp. two-choice decisions (eg. perceptual or linguistic). However, other quantifiable measures for cognitive task (including, say, time to complete a certain programming project vs no of programmers) are of my interest as well.

comment Performance of a group solving a cognitive task: How does it scale?
@JeromyAnglim: I am interested in collaboration on cognitive tasks, so only the part on software development is answering my question. I am aware of Ringelmann effect (however, it's more about motivation/management than anything else). And yes, for different tasks the scaling is likely to be different.
