comment How did the concepts of left and right direction develop in the human mind?
I take it you want to know why we use these particular words in English (where "right" also means "correct")? In which case, your question probably belongs on english.stackexchange.com, where, in fact, it's discussed well here, here, and here

comment What are the most used statistical methods in WM research besides (generalized) linear modeling?
To reiterate @Chris' comment, the choice of analysis is completely dependant on the design of the experiment, and what the DV is, not the domain being studied. If you're looking at a continuous DV between groups, you use t tests/ANOVA (paired or unpaired), if you're looking at binary outcomes, you use logistic regression, and if you're looking at complex, nested, or unbalanced designs, you use mixed models. You'll really need to specify what kind of experiment you're thinking about, and consider posting on CrossValidated

See also Jeromy Anglim's discussion of the same paper on this site a while ago.

(Continuation...) This isn't the place to discuss his career, but I think users should be wary of blindly accepting his findings at face value. Added bonus critique here

comment How is intelligence correlated to beauty?
I'm sure I've raised this on this site before, but Satoshi Kanazawa's work is hugely controversial, including accusations of racism, statistical mispractice, and even not understanding what a correlation is.

comment Memory - Remembering a Source
You're describing the distinction between semantic, and episodic memory, which is quite easy to look up. In short, the former is facts and knowledge, the latter is specific events from your own experience, and they're based on possibly different processes.

comment Is there a term for people who hate (or don't prefer ) things that are mainstream?
As I said, it's a colloquial term in English. See here, for example.

Outside of psychology, the colloquial term would have to be "Histers", wouldn't it?

comment Do Jewish people have better cognitive abilities than average population?
I think it's necessary, if we're going to cite Richard Lynn's work, to acknowledge that he has been widely criticised as, variously, racist, xenophobic, homophobic, and guilty of gross statistical malpractice. While this isn't the place to discuss Lynn's legacy, we aught to at least mention that his findings aren't exactly without controversy. All that aside, nice answer.

comment Different neural structures for quick vs. methodical decision making
+1. I went and grossly simplified the argument into black and white terms. I think it's because I've been interacting with undergraduates again.

comment Different neural structures for quick vs. methodical decision making
Whoops, thought I had replied here. I don't disagree with you: "emotion" certainly involves regions traditionally considered the substrate of "cognition", and vice versa - the idea of completely isolated, distinct neural modules for every kind of progress is considered pretty far off the mark nowadays by most researchers. Nevertheless, these regions are still differentiated, and system two processes (or Working Memory, if you prefer) primarily rely on prefrontal cortical networks, while system one processes don't.
