I am a Lecturer in the School of Psychology at Deakin University bridging I/O psychology and statistics.

I'm quite active on the Cognitive Sciences and Statistics Stack Exchanges.

You can find me also on:

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.

Could you elaborate on how the references relate to the question?

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.

comment What are the cognitive elements of dangerous behaviors?
How are you defining "cognitive elements" (personality traits; information processing; contextual factors like alcohol and drug use and how they operate)? What risk taking behaviours are you interested in (e.g., driving fast; engaging in contact sports; aggression; extreme sports; etc.)?

comment What exactly is the neurobiological mechanism behind the functioning of the human muscle?
It was suggested that this question might be better suited to biology.stakcexchange.com . What do others think?

comment Self-reflection? Mindfulness?
It's probably worth distinguishing between the cognitive process and the trait possessed by people who tend to engage in the cognitive process more than others (e.g., introspection (process) versus introspective (trait))

comment 12 percent of our dreams are in black and white?
I hope you don't mind, but I removed the bit about it taking effort to laugh. I don't see how that has any connection with whether and to what extend dreams are in black and white. If you're still interested in that aspect, I'd ask it as a separate question.

comment How does motivation and performance vary from day to day between mathematical and artistic activity?
Your initial post seemed to be an observation about yourself. And I wasn't quite sure what your question was. I've edited to try to capture this, but feel free to further edit.

comment How is music preference related to personality traits or particular qualities?
It looks like a good starting point; hopefully either the author of this answer or someone else can edit this answer to incorporate something of what was found in the article to make this self-contained.

comment Can we explain the tendency of investors dollar cost averaging in terms of loss aversion?
Just curious, if you have \$100,000 to invest and you are putting \$1000 into the market each week, where does a DCA investor put the remainder of their money (i.e., the \$99,000 in week 1, the \$98,000 in week 2, etc.). Surely the performance of that implicit investment is particularly relevant to evaluating the DCA strategy.

comment Does everyone have some degree of Aspergers?
You might want to do a search for "taxometrics and asperger". Taxometrics is a discipline that examines the question of whether something is categorical or continuous. It has been particularly applied to psychology.

comment Are perceptions of beauty and the ideal partner mostly determined by mass media?
Question seemed to be asking two questions at very different levels of generality. Given there were no answers, I've edited to focus on just one. Feel free to ask the more general question as a separate question if you wish.

comment Prevalence of psychological “problems”
You are interested in prevalence statistics on "bad thinking, cognitive distortion, and other strong, dysfunctional personality traits". I guess the issue is that these don't map that well on to scientific terminology. For example everyone sometimes engages in what might be labelled bad thinking; and everyone sometimes engages in cognitive distortion. Is there a particular trait or disorder that you want prevalence information on?

comment Why isn't psychotherapy more direct with patients?
changed the wording a little bit to make clear that the views are the OP's opinions.

comment Does mental satisfaction lead to physical satisfaction?
How do you define "physical satisfaction"? Personal satisfaction with your physical health? Satisfaction with your body? Objective health?

comment What delay between two audio sources is seen as “noticeable” to most people?
It's not my area, but I imagine some form of search for "signal detection theory" and "audio synchrony" would be a good start (e.g., see this google scholar search).

comment Does the time required to read a word grow linearly with the number of characters?
I think the previous question was focussed on reading sentences and this one tended to have an emphasis on words, which I think is a small but relevant difference. I've tweaked both to hopefully prevent this one being closed as a duplicate.
