comment How to work on a research problem while sleeping?
For the sleep part, I think this question might be a duplicate of the earlier: Can one incubate on a specific idea in one's sleep? for the "dinner, walking, or shower" part, you should take a look at this question: How is it that taking a break from a problem sometimes allows you to figure out the answer?

comment What color is this dress? — And why do some see it as white and gold and others see it as black and blue?
Can you make your answer more self-contained? Otherwise it is a better fit as a comment than as an answer.

@StevenJeuris sounds like somebody is well-placed to provide an answer.

comment What are some examples of controversial themes in psychology?
Also keep in mind, that these comments are from individual and different users. They do not unanimously reflect the opinion of the site (and although I am a moderator I am writing here with advice and not enforcing a policy) and that is why you get conflicting opinions from users. Your question is definitely an edge case.

comment What are some examples of controversial themes in psychology?
@JustinS you could just add your comment as clarification to the question: you are fine of things from any subfield as long as they are of interest to the broader community and understandable by most research psychologists. As "no no" example, you can say how BBS is kind of what you want, but too specific and not of general enough interest.

comment What are some examples of controversial themes in psychology?
@JustinS we are not trying to make you not ask this question. The reason people are taking so much time to discuss with you in chat and comments (instead of just closing, for instance I could have cast a binding close vote already if I really thought this question was bad) is because they think your question is good and has great intention but is not completely in line with how the site is used. Hence, they are trying to make suggestions on how to make it a better fit. All communities have some sort of standards and you should try to respect them, especially if you are new & looking for aid.

comment What are some examples of controversial themes in psychology?
@JustinS you should make that more explicit in the question. Right now you write "multiple subfields of psychology", which suggests that I can answer with some pretty pedantic things.

@Josh I agree with Christian, basic neuroscience question are very much on-topic here.

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"
