From the School of Computer Science and Department of Psychology at McGill University, I marvel at the world through algorithmic lenses. My specific interests are in quantum computing, evolutionary game theory, modern evolutionary synthesis, and theoretical cognitive science. Previously I was at the Institute for Quantum Computing and Department of Combinatorics & Optimization at the University of Waterloo and a visitor to the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore.

comment Is positive self-talk beneficial for those with low self-esteem?
The 3rd point seems like a real game-killer. If you don't believe the statement you are saying to yourself, then it is almost the same as saying the negation to yourself... so no surprise that this can cause harm.

comment Behaviorist interpretations of decision field theory
@Preece to me, behaviorism in psychology smells a lot like operationalism in physics and so I want to understand it better.

comment Is Behaviorism incompatible with Cognitive Psychology?
As for the relevance of behaviorism today, I like section 5 of the SEoP article

comment Do we understand the non-subjective mechanisms behind pleasure and pain?
Mildly related question I am also going to tag this question as behaviorism to avoid future qualia confusion.
