I need that book!!

It is a seriously excellent and uncomfortable read. Uncomfortable because there's no escaping the recognition that you do all of the things the authors describe.

Jesus Christ. Whenever I try to do ANYTHING for you guys, I do something wrong.

Is there any way I could contribute to PD.com without being seen as a troll or an idiot?

I'm being totally serious.

(P. S. That discussion about me was actually hilarious. I laughed.)

To clarify:

This is an amazing community. You are all AWESOME. Keep up the good work!

PD.com is a great site, and I've actually learned a lot from you.

I want to help this community.

When I try, I epically fail.

You don't seem to like that which makes sense seeing as it's a) an epic fail and b) I'm a noob.

Any tips?

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

Help it what?
Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

My best suggestion is:

1. Stop trying to "help". There's this thing that happens when you have the mindset that you are here to "be helpful", which is that you end up giving people uninformed, unhelpful unsolicited advice, which in general people will perceive either as you being condescending or as you being a dumbass. You see that shit all over Facebook, and nobody likes it there either.

2. Read the thread before commenting. That can really help head off accidental dumbassery. We all violate this regularly, but that's largely because we

3. Know your audience. I don't mean memorize our work schedules and birthdays, that's creepy. But I do mean that there aren't that many people here and we are all very different individuals with different areas of expertise. For example, Johnny is a psychology graduate student and I'm a bio/psych double major undergrad. The odds that neither of us would have heard of the Dunning-Kruger Effect are vanishingly small. Now, I'm not saying that you should be able to recall everyone's field of study off the top of your head, but hopefully it should at least ring a bell, so that you don't find yourself helpfully informing Cain about terrorism facts.

4. Be humble. Yeah, I know that we don't generally seem very humble (THIS THREAD NOTWITHSTANDING) but the reality is that you're on a forum where anything you know, it is highly likely that at least one other person knows. For the most part, except when things break down into inchoate screeching at each other over trivial slights real and imagined, we are able to get along with each other fairly well by following the general rules of politeness, including trying not to assume that the people you are talking to don't already know all about what it is you're planning to tell them. Sometimes they won't, and you get a chance to share something new. Sometimes they will know more than you do, in which case you might get a chance to learn something new.

5. Use all of the above to help you think your post through, both as you're writing and on your final read-through before hitting "post".

6) Do not assume that being corrected or ribbed for fucking up means everyone hates you forever and take it personal-like. Wear a helmet, take your knocks, and do better next time.

Agreed with all of the above, save for one thing: You should TOTALLY explain terrorism to Cain.

QG is correct, except in my case.  I fuckin' hate you.  It's nothing personal.

It has nothing to do with you as an individual.  I just don't like your kind.

No.  Humans.  I have extremely good reasons for hating humans...But I don't consider them to be a collection of phosphor dots.  If you think that the people you are talking to are just pixels on a screen, then you are also a wretchedly defective human as well.
