comment Can ESP and out-of-body phenomena be understood as a form of dreaming or hallucination?
I tried to distill what you were saying into a concise question. I'm not sure whether I succeeded or not, but if not feel free to edit to a concise question

comment What causes fear of failure to lead to lack of effort and actual failure?
The question was going to be closed on the basis of being self-help, so I gave it a massive overhaul, to hopefully focus on the general question.

comment Which R packages have good collections of psychology datasets?
Thanks. They look like they'll be useful for a factor analysis / psychometrics lab I need to give.

comment What are effective strategies for increasing concentration and motivation when doing seemingly passive activities such as reading journal articles?
@AsheeshR if the OP would like to request a migration, I'm happy to do that. However, I imagine on cogsci you are likely to get a different kind of answer than on personal productivity. In particular, I think answers on cogsci would be more research based and grounded in psychological theory. However, if you know of any specific equivalent questions on personal productivity it might be worth posting them here.

comment What are effective strategies for increasing concentration and motivation when doing seemingly passive activities such as reading journal articles?
It is an interesting situation. Your initial question needed clarification regarding (a) what was the question; (b) how could it be framed in a general way. I have given it a little edit so that there is a clear question. Feel free to edit further if your question is different or you have additional related questions.

comment Which R packages have good collections of psychology datasets?
awesome. I hadn't seen that github resource before. That said, I often have trouble finding authentic and realistic psychological datasets on the web, as opposed to toy-example datasets.

comment What causes some women to have repeated abortions?
Tweaked the question a little bit to try make it flow from what can be taken from the initial paper to the ultimate question.

comment Which political system stimulates individuals the most to strive for the greater good?
Not a close vote from me, but I wonder what are some examples of "aspects of a political system" that you had in mind. For example, there are formal and informal aspects of the political system. And are you more concerned with the governing or the governed? Are you talking about individual level effects or society-level effects? What kind of psychological evidence did you have in mind as opposed to argument that would be more suited on say politics.stackexchange.com

comment Are there any cognitive models for image interpretation?
How are you defining "image interpretation"? There are big literatures on a range of topics such as visual categorisation, visual discrimination, aesthetic judgements, etc.

comment Does identifying a student's sensory learning style and exploiting it result in significantly better performance?
My answer would also be no for the same reasons I articulate on this previous learning styles question (not a duplicate question)

comment Is consistent dual n-back training likely to improve the performance of analysis (mathematics) students?
Okay. I've added the refs and a quote from one of them.

comment Is consistent dual n-back training likely to improve the performance of analysis (mathematics) students?
@Ofri perhaps you could add those references as a spearate answer; or if you'd prefer I could just add the refs to my answer. My answer is quite light on the references regarding working memory training, although my general reading of the literature has led me to be very sceptical.

comment Is there any empirical support evaluating the fast phobia cure?
See this previous question for the issue of general scientific evaluation of NLP; With the aim of not closing this as a duplicate, I've edited your question to focus on the specific part of your question which is unique.

@EnoqueDuarte It does sound like a separate question. Why not ask a separate question about this.
