comment Do people feel emotions less strongly as they grow older?
Okay. By ability to feel emotion: I mean emotions like anger, happiness, and sadness. By how we can answer this empirically - this is sort of hard to answer. Hm - I'll ask this here: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/124/…

comment Can intense multitasking improve fluid intelligence/working memory?
Added another link, and added the part about using a cellphone while driving a car. Regarding the Starcraft II relationship - someone from LessWrong says something very similar (lesswrong.com/lw/6sj/experience_with_dual_nback/4jme) and I'd like to see that investigated more rigorously.

comment Beyond a certain level, is reading comprehension affected more by psychological intuition than by verbal intelligence?
Very good points. And yeah - it's probably true - most reading comprehension passages are small, so they don't involve complex psychological issues that you'd see in, say, a longer book.

comment Are IQ tests “biased” against individuals with Asperger's Syndrome?
I actually suspect, though, that the lower-than-average IQ Aspies simply get diagnosed with autism instead, which could explain why Aspies have higher-than-average IQs. In fact, I suspect that this might be a major reason why they're considering merging Asperger's Syndrome with high-functioning autism in the DSM-V.

comment Is there a practical limit to the amount of knowledge a human can learn?
Knowledge across all domains. I'm particularly interested in if interference is greater for domain specific knowledge than for knowledge across all domains.
