comment Women in red-lipstick/darker shades?
This assumes that the woman wearing lipstick is doing it because of the men around her; not a good assumption at all, as it falls into the classic error of thinking that a woman's appearance is all about the men around her. She might just like the way it looks to her, or like the way the lipstick feels. I would point out that this research is all about the male perception of lipstick, and not about female motivations for lipstick.

comment Does your voice pitch affect your perceived authority?
True, I was including self-report in that bucket (where it doesn't necessarily belong).

comment Does your voice pitch affect your perceived authority?
Great answer! It would be interesting to see experimental, non-correlative work on this. Do people rate persuasive passages read by a deep voice as more persuasive than the same passage read at a higher pitch? Etc.

comment Central and peripheral route dilemma
That really doesn't give anyone inclined to answer the question any more information than they had already. Which social psychology book is that? How does it define central and peripheral routes to persuasion? Which research does it cite in support of these definitions?

comment What to call memories of oneself or life without a personal context?
Welcome to cogsci.SE! Providing links to further information about episodic vs semantic, or declarative vs procedural, memory would improve this answer by giving readers a starting point for their own research.
