comment What is it called when a person seeks to compare themselves to others?
Your answer emphasises bias. I think that is one way of viewing the OP's question. However, I interpreted the question as a little more neutral regarding the purpose of the comparison. For example, one purpose could be for self-esteem issues, competitiveness. However, equally a person might just want to compare themselves to others as a means of understanding themselves or others in general. Or it could just be an interpretative lens.

Perhaps see social comparison theory

comment Psychology of a student
This is an interesting question, but it is a bit too specific for our site (hence several people are voting to close). Can you reframe it as a general question about teaching or students?

comment How to gamify a mentoring activity?
Can you elaborate on what you mean on peer training? What are the goals of the application? What kin of things did you have in mind?

comment What is the optimal exercise regime for improving cognitive functioning?
so to clarify, you're not asking about what is optimal for physical health and fitness, you are asking about optimal for cognitive functioning?

comment “Please enter alphanumeric characters” or “Please enter letters and numbers”?
I think this is probably more a question for ux.stackexchange.com ; do you want me to migrate?

comment How to analyse accuracy, hits and false alarms in e-prime?
You might want to check out this signal detection theory tutorial that talks about vocabulary in SDT including hits versus hit rate, and false alarm versus false alarm rates.

comment How can the mind be trained to accept ongoing mental or emotional suffering?
It's just a sense. Let's see how it goes. I'm sure your willingness to edit your question to try to make it a useful general resource will be well received.

comment How can the mind be trained to accept ongoing mental or emotional suffering?
I'm not sure whether others will think it is on topic, but I appreciate that you have edited it to make it not self help. I've re-opened just to give it some attention.

comment How can the mind be trained to accept ongoing mental or emotional suffering?
I imagine a general question around the psychology of "acceptance" would potentially be on topic, perhaps contextualised within the context of marriage. Perhaps give a few edits a go and see what other sites users think.

comment If time travel were possible, would travelling back in time result in memory loss?
My first instinct was to vote to close this question, but part of me finds it quite interesting to ponder the implications of changing one aspect of reality but holding psychological theory broadly constant. Anyway, I posted a meta question to discuss these types of questions and whether they are on topic. I also think the scientific nature of the answers supports keeping the question open.

comment How to get out of the habit of eating junk food?
In its original form the question was "self-help"; I have edited it to make it general and thus hopefully fit the format of this site.

comment How has psychology categorised different types of love?
Just to make this an answerable question, I've removed the separate question about how to make a relationship work. Feel free to ask that question else where or edit this one to more clearly show the connection between the "types of love" question.

comment Why do women feel odd when males stare at them?
@ShivamPatel I agree much more could be said about staring. Hopefully, others will provide answers picking up on other aspects of your question.
