I got my first degree as a musician (jazz guitar) and returned to school a couple of years ago as a psychology major. As of now I am a graduate student. I have a strong interest in methodology and statistics.

In my bachelor thesis I compared the Variability Effect from Cognitive Load Theory with the phenomenon of Interleaved Learning from a connectionist point of view. Currently I am trying to build on this work. I am working on a proposal of how hierarchically structured learning material can be analysed to make predictions about the order in which the underlying concepts might be distinguished from another.

comment Correlation between anxiety/calmness and innovation development?
Thanks for your answer. I think it is generally a good idea to be as specific as possible. You could e.g. say, which of the criteria were not met. If it was temporality, that would be a different story as if it was one of the others. I personally think the expression "near causal relationship" is somewhat of an euphemism for "causal relationhip has not been established, even though it might exist".

comment Correlation between anxiety/calmness and innovation development?
Thanks for your reply, but my question is not what a causal relationship is. It is what a "near causal" relationship is?

What exactly is a "near causal relationship" supposed to be?

comment Reducing ceiling effect with a Likert scale measure
I get the feeling that when you talk about a scale, you refer to the scoring format (1-6), and that you have only one item. Is that correct?

@what Thanks for your edit. It improves my answer quite a bit. While I am thankful for that, maybe you want to incorporate those insights into your own answer...

comment Classification of Attachment Styles
I don't think that you should delete it. Concentrate on the stuff about attachment avoidance and attachment anxiety. That's totally relevant.

comment Classification of Attachment Styles
Thanks a lot for your effort, I appreciate it. +1 Please give me some time to respond, my schedule does not always allow me to comment right after something has been posted. There was a lot in your answer that did not really relate to my question, though. I found the answer I was looking for and posted it. When you read it, I think you will know what I mean. Since the site is about getting good answers, maybe you want to consider editing your answer a bit?

comment Failing to recognise one's own work
Hmm, I am afraid this is not an answer to your question. See my answer for an explanation.

comment Classification of Attachment Styles
@Damien Hmm,interesting. They use the terms I asked about. And from that website it seems that all styles are on one dimension with an ordering from "good" to "bad". That's yet another view.

comment Are unconscious thoughts captured by free association?
I personally think you answered the question yourself. If something is unconscious, then it is... well... not conscious.

comment Gaining and maintaining viewer sympathy for an anti-social protagonist
I like your answer, but it seems to be based solely on your opinion. It sounds plausible, but can you provide some kind of reference?

comment Psychologically, how does volunteer work help the volunteer?
@Skippy Thanks. Note, that volunteering does not have to be altruistic. I edited my post to emphasize this.

comment Relationship between social psychology and educational psychology
@Aidis Hmmm, that's funny. I thought this question is nice because it's one of the few that actually have a simple answer. While I see your point, that a question about the relationship between two fields is certainly not easy to answer, the question of wether educational psychology is a subfield of social psychology in my opinion does have a definite answer.

comment Is the 'addiction' to receiving sympathy similar to substance addiction or just a deficit of resilience?
Are you refering to the psychological concept of resilience as used e.g. in this article?

comment How to prevent insults from unconsciously causing negative emotions?
It's not possisble get a hold of something that is unconscious, since then it would not be unconscious anymore.

comment Why do teenagers take the internet and cyberbullying so seriously?
@Skpippy I'm not Fischer, either;-) But in general I would say that it's not so much about links, but rather about a reference. But maybe that's what you meant, anyway. In this case, never mind!

comment Why does a clock counting down generate more pressure than a clock counting up?
Is it really the case that counting down creates more pressure? Is there any evidence?
