comment How do laypeople form a judgement that another person is smart or intelligent?
I tried to help distil the question. In essence I think you're asking about how everyday people form judgements about intelligence. Thus, the question is not talking about how psychologists should categorise someone as intelligent, but rather how laypeople actually do it. Note that the question is now no longer subjective even though the individual decision making process is.

comment What are the average raw scores, and standard deviations for the WAIS-IV subtests?
@caseyr547 That's why it is a comment. It also embodies the point that if you are using a test, ethically you should understand how to use the test, and that involves reading the test manual.

I imagine the information you are after would be in the WAIS IV scoring manual. Many university schools of psychology should have a copy.

I've never heard of neurobot. Have you looked at the cited citations on google scholar? scholar.google.com/scholar?q=neurobot

comment How do people estimate smoking's impact on their mortality?
Thanks for making the edits; I think the focus on smoking makes it a much more answerable question.

Would you be able to edit your question incorporating these suggestions?

comment How do people estimate smoking's impact on their mortality?
Yes. Good questions. There is literature on all these topics. You are talking about the field of health psychology. I think your question would be better divided into at least two separate questions. I.e., (1) How accurate are people in estimating their mortality risk? and then a second question about smoking. I'm not quite clear on what is your second question, but it could be: (2a) How does smoking alter people's perceptions of mortality risk? or (2b) How effective is new information in altering smoker's perception of mortality risk? Your third question seems a little too general.

comment This is the 2,000th question posted. Why do people care about big round number events more than the surrounding events?
Could you clarify: (1) easier in what sense? (2) Saves a lot of what? (3) Why is simplicity of representation appealing?

@Nick I edited the question to make the assumption a question.

comment How to report an F statistic in APA style?
I think the title focuses on APA style and in general I think that APA style (i.e., psychology) is on topic for cogsci (see this meta discussion). However, the body of this question is mostly a general statistical question that would be very much at home on CrossValidated. On balance, I think it would be fine on either site.

comment How to assign numbers to response options on a bipolar scale?
Are you asking about whether and how to display numbers to respondents or how you code the resulting responses?

comment What is the personality of a woman who will kill for her freedom?
Under certain conditions, police kill others, soldiers kill others. Many such people do not have trauma in their past. Some such people are female.

comment How to measure change in emotional responses when pre and post tests use different measures?
@user39531 An example would be you have a measure of positive mood using test A and test B; Test a was measured pre-test and test b was measured post-test. So you use Test A as the covariate and Test B as the DV.

comment How to measure change in emotional responses when pre and post tests use different measures?
In general, you'd be looking for pre-test covariates in your ANCOVA that predict your post-test dependent variables well. Greater prediction by covariates means greater statistical control for error variance which generally means more statistical power.

comment Does military background enhance personal productivity?
I think you'll get different answer on this site to productivity.SE, but please don't post to multiple forums without at least acknowledging that you have done so. I've added the link to your other question.

comment Bias towards purchasing tangible vs virtual goods
It looks like a useful reference. It'd be great if you could elaborate to make the answer a little more comprehensive.

comment Can someone move into cognitive science from a linguistic or philosophical background?
I wonder what tags would be appropriate for this type of question? I've added one, but I'm not sure if it is suitable.

comment What are the cognitive elements of dangerous behaviors?
Thanks for responding. I'm still not clear what you are asking. What do you mean by neurocognitive parameters? How do they relate to cognitive elements? How does this concern with the DSM 5 antisocial personality disorder relate to the previous question.
