comment How effective are high audio frequencies in commercials in getting audience attention?
Okay. I've tweaked the title to focus on a scientific question; I wasn't entirely sure about which aspect of the topic your question was focused on: i.e. effectiveness of high frequencies? prevalence of use high frequencies as an attention gaining strategy? conditions where it works or doesn't work? etc.

comment How effective are high audio frequencies in commercials in getting audience attention?
Welcome to the site. I'm wondering whether your question could be refined to focus more on the scientific question. I can see that you're keen to get scientific references, that's fine. Usually on this site, we try to focus on the scientific question and incorporate a request for a reference as a secondary component: e.g., is the question: How effective are high audio frequencies in advertisements in attracting viewer attention?

comment What is the difference between confidence and overconfidence?
To the extent that confidence is accurate, then to some extent confidence is capability. I think in some domains (e.g., leadership, sales, etc.) a little bit of bravado can be beneficial. In other cases, confidence or at least self-efficacy may lead to greater persistence which in turn increases competence. Confidence may also lead people to interpret their competence as greater than it actually is (i.e., a belief confirmation orientation).

comment What contextual links would make full-text journal articles more useful?
Also to clarify, are you talking only about links in the PDF/HTML of the full-text article or are you also talking about side bar links (e.g., options to export bibliographic information links to related articles, view statistics, etc.)

comment What contextual links would make full-text journal articles more useful?
Thanks for asking. I've given this question an edit, but I'm still not sure whether it is a good fit for the site. It is fairly subjective and could potentially vary a lot across disciplines.
