comment Problems with using personal feedback to motivate participation in an online psychological experiment?
Interesting question, but I don't think it's possible to answer with the information given. If you give us a detailed explanation of the experiment and what you hope to find, perhaps we can help. My intuitions: 1) is there any reason to suspect this is unethical? 2) people might try to change their answers to match feedback, even if they don't know how the feedback was derived. this in confusing though, because you say feedback is only given at the end of the experiment. so i'm not sure how that would help your cause.

comment How repeatable are cognitive science findings within the same individual?
I suppose you could say that, but no one actually does. It's just as arbitrary as saying "There are two types of experiments: those that study the effects of aging on memory, and those that don't." Sure it's true, but it's meaningless.

comment What articles use structural equation modelling in a meta-analytic context to model mediation?
Welcome to cogsci.SE, and many thanks for your well-thought-out contribution! I hope you'll stick around and ask/answer some other questions that arise. Also for future reference: if you're familiar with LaTeX (MathTeX), you can use it to format math equations in your posts

comment How well defined is ADD/ADHD?
you're right though, that this isn't the best answer. it doesn't address how criteria for the DSM are chosen. my understanding is that this processes is subjective and controversial, but maybe someone can provide a more detailed explanation.
