@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.

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.
