comment Is there any scientific basis to different learning styles?
@IllegalImmigrant Perhaps ask a separate question specifically about that article. i.e., a question of the form. The following article claims X. Does their evidence support that claim? etc. It would be great to see more questions of that type on this site.

comment Where to obtain and how to score the Bukowski et al “Friendship Qualities Scale”?
Question has now been edited to focus on how to obtain and how to score. Obviously as the previous comments noted, this is not a site for requesting pdfs.

comment So why might people post seemingly excessive concerns regarding the danger in their neighbourhood?
I've attempted to make the question a little more general; I.e., the aim is to move such questions away from your specific circumstances to ask a more general question. Feel free to further refine to capture the general point.

comment What more important to an authoritative person, to be liked or respected?
In general topics on I/O psychology are on topic, particularly if they are asking about scientific relationships. However, I'm not sure that this question can be answered in its current form. Surely some managers prefer to be liked and others would value respect more. Also, is the question about what produces greater productivity or is it about what managers like?

@StrangeLoop I'd be inclined to convert your comment to answer.

comment Is there scientific evidence on the benefits of binaural beats?
Is this the same question as this one on Brain Sync: cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/6063/… or this one on psychoactive music cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/1882/…

comment Why does munching sound unpleasant to most people?
Just to be clear. Are you talking specifically about eating with your mouth open?

comment How to better remember your dreams?
@kernorb comments are for comments. It sounds like you've provided an answer, so it's best to place such things in the "answer" box. By doing that site users can then vote on whether your answer is reasonable (i.e., does it provide evidence for its claims, etc.).

comment Optimal number of dimensions in multidimensional scaling
@LarryM Welcome to the site. Feel free to ask another question. To do this, ask a separate question by clicking "Ask question". If it is related to this question, then add a link to this question from your new question.

comment Is there any scientific literature on the “shower principle” (i.e., taking a break from a task leads to unexpected insights)?
See also How is it that taking a break from a problem sometimes allows you to figure out the answer?

@user107952 updated question to capture this slightly clearer question.

comment What is a good rough rule of thumb regarding required sample size for questionnaire studies?
It depends on your research question, study design, planned analysis, alpha level or desired precision, and effect sizes that are either expected or of interest.

comment Has there been any research done that contrasts point-based and achievement-based gamification methods?
@Hyper Unfortunately, I'm not aware of a way to do such a merge at this point.

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.

comment What are the average raw scores, and standard deviations for the WAIS-IV subtests?
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.
