comment Beyond a certain level, is reading comprehension affected more by psychological intuition than by verbal intelligence?
Is this the question? Amongst individuals who are around or above the average level of verbal intelligence, are differences in verbal comprehension more explainable by a variable/construct known as 'psychological intuitiveness'?

comment What is a validated single-item measure of mood?
Thanks. I will check these out. I was originally thinking of whether a single Likert type item had been identified as the best item within a positive affect scale for example.

comment Why do higher incentives lead to lower performance for non-rudimentary tasks?
The study represents behaviour in a study - and it has a kind of amplified Hawthorne effect potentially. The people are being observed and they may even appreciate that the results will be in the view of many other people. I still think it is interesting that there is an interaction with the difficulty of the task. And I don't think we have answered that terribly well yet here. This was the original question. To test the idea properly we would need to do it free from obvious observation influence and vary task difficulty quite systematically. A working memory task would be ideal here I think.
