Peer review is wild. It's like if you took your car to mechanic and one mec said: "we noticed all your doors have rusted out, you should fix those" and another said: "LOVE THE RUSTED DOORS, but have you considered adding a flame thrower?" and a third said: "it's not a horse."
what makes the response letter so wild is that it's like "Reviewer 3, thank you for pointing out that our car with rusted doors is not a horse. We agree that it is indeed not a horse and that our car is limited by it's not horsiness. We have noted this limitation on page X."
Of course, if reviewer 3 is particularly ornery, the response letter looks like this: “reviewer 3, we agree that the omission of a horse from our car was a grave oversight on our part, accordingly we have installed a bed in the backseat and taken the Godfather option”

fun little hot take of the day for you all:

Evangelicals rely on conservative Catholic jurists to accomplish their legislative agenda because Evangelicals generally lack the intellectual rigor and educational training to ever make it to high-level judicial appointments
The Evangelical intellectual tradition is a rich one filled with unaccredited universities and a rejection of "liberal" education systems
I'm not implying that Evangelicals are dumb; but, modern American Evangelicalism has fashioned its own brand of education and intellectualism that largely falls outside of traditional educational venues. The Southern Baptist seminary system is a great example of this.

In 2011, I was told by an anonymous reviewer that studying "pornography addiction" was irrelevant to clinical psych.

This year alone, my lab has published on porn/sex addiction in The Journal of Abnormal Psychology, Clinical Psychological Science, and Clinical Psychology Review.
(this is not a humble brag; this is a brag brag).

Thanks to the efforts of so many amazing researchers, friends, and colleagues, this "niche" area of interest is getting the attention that I passionately believe that it deserves.

Now, it's time to convince the funders.
and, importantly, it's not just me! Journal of Abnormal has published other papers on compulsive sexual behaviors, Psychology of Addictive Behaviors has published a few papers on porn/sex in the past 5 years, and so have many others.

Alright folks, the un-corrected proofs are now online at Clinical Psychology Review, so I thought I’d do a summary thread of this work. Feel free to RT! This was a herculean effort by my lab, so we are certainly hoping that it gets some attention.…
First & foremost, I want to thank my students (NONE OF WHOM HAVE TWITTER) who contributed so much to this review. Last fall, I met with a few of them and cast a vision for this project, and one my advanced students (Jenny Grant) organized the lab's effort…
From there, my then 1st-year stu, Camille Hoagland put in a monumental amount of work reviewing hundreds upon hundreds of papers for the present review. Our final paper included over 370 papers, but we reviewed over a 1,000. She did half single handedly.…

Neighbor dropped off some peppers he grew and made some ominous warnings.

The middle one is dragons breath.

Which... is the second hottest pepper in existence apparently? Image
So, do I just eat them or…
Update, the orange one is an orange naga viper chili, only half as hot as the dragons breath (which puts the viper at 1.1mil Scovilles)

I am thrilled to share our (myself, @BrandonWarmke, @JustinTosi, and @alishantija) latest work on Moral Grandstanding that has just been released in the Journal of Research in Personality.

A brief summary below (Feel free to RT)!…
The overarching theme of this paper is that grandstanding is associated with greater ideological extremism and affective polarization.

People who grandstand more are more likely to be extreme in their political and ideological beliefs and in their reactions to political others
We were able to demonstrate this in college students and nationally representative samples and consistently show that moral grandstanding predicts extreme ideological positions (i.e., being **very** conservative or **very** liberal) regardless of direction.

just a reminder folks, if you're in academia (or in any position of power) here's the acceptable list of directions to punch Image
yes, I know this is dangerously close to putting a kick me sign on my own back Image
how the hell is this a controversial take, folks?
like... it's ok to kindly correct, mentor, and guide those with less power than you (if that's within your professional role or it's invited/requested); it's ok to debate and challenge those at your level; and it's ok to punch up
