Is some psychology total woo woo?

Post by robinson »

I looked, and couldn't find where a psychology thread would go. Science? Medicine? Frauds? Oh and fuck?

Then I realized one of my experiments I have run online (for 23 years now) can be demonstrated, but what topic? What sub forum? It's a behavioral science experiment.

Is behavioral science real science? I mean, are the double blind experiments valid?

If they are properly constructed then yes. If it like the bullshit paranormal stuff, then no.
