comment What are some examples of controversial themes in psychology?
@JustinS I like the idea of this question, but I fear it is far too broad. You can take almost any issue of BBS, for instance, and it will be an answer. I know you've had an extensive discussion about this in chat, but can you tighten this question further?

comment Are good students truly good at all things?
This is not an answer to the question (even in the overly broad terms that you seem to construe it in), and is also rude: "I know that you don't understand my answer"

comment PTSD based on false memories
@ChristianHummeluhr I don't need experimental manipulations, I am happy with case studies. I don't see why such case studies cannot exist in principle: some people have long-term psychotherapists that they attend regardless of previous trauma (i.e. as a preventative measure; this is advised for psychiatry residents at our school, for instance), so such people could be certified as "typical" before and then later develop PTSD which after investigation turns out to be based around an event that never happened. The other direction has case-studies from people with an absent fear response.
