The Hidden Biases in WEIRD Psychology Research
Psychology studies can be really skewed by the WEIRD population (western, educated, industrialized, rich, and democratic). Why does this hidden bias exist?

For a more in depth look at the WEIRD research and it's ramifications check out this article. A link to the original journal article is also contained. If we are ever going to live in a world at peace, it won't happen living in our own little Western bubble while projecting that "bubble" out onto the rest of the world.

Fix, step 1: fund these properly so they don't have to settle for students in the same college the study is in

So what about EUAPA: eastern, uneducated, agrarian, poor, authoritarian?

Jascha Bull says:

Reminds me of this one article I read which claimed that science had disproven the "early to bed, early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise" quote. The study it claimed to have done this was an experiment in which all the subjects were teens, and completely neglected to mention that peoples' sleeping habits have been found to change depending on age, gravitating towards going to bed later as youth, and sooner as grown-ups. Knowing that, it seems more likely the results of that experiment can be chalked up to the age of the subjects, not Franklin's being wrong about men (note his quote direction mentioned men, not youths; men weren't even studied here).

Muirén Ní Sídach says:

How did you manage to leave out the spectrum of racial and ethnic diversity in the US, and the long history of scientic racism that still isn't being addressed in psychology?

t a says:

It's all relative…. Or not…. But then again maybe….

faceshed says:

You make it sound so evil to say left and right. But think about it as a cultural decision. When a person says left to you is forces you to put yourself in their shoes mentally. Yes… How egotistical… It's not to say it's the better system or even that it matters, I'd still like you to show that, but at least we can get a whole picture now. Let's start there before you go to insults.

Marjana Sarker says:

Thank you, this is exactly why we still can't figure out cognitive decline and wrongly diagnose people based on old tests that were validated primarily on Caucasians -_-

ali_is_ace says:

Is WEIRD the new WASP?

Grace Van Etten says:

i'm a knitter, and her sweater is seriously distracting me from learning, but on the plus side I have a new pattern to try:P

Sean Peery says:

People clearly see colours differently than me. I'm constantly being told about all these white and black people, but I have yet to see a single person who is one of these colours.
All I ever see are really ugly shades of brown from light tan to dark chocolate.

Highbreed-Hybrid says:

It should be noted that the psychological studies weren't only done on native people. At least here in Scotland we have students from a bit of everywhere, China, India, various parts of Africa, Brazil, etc. Also not to mention offspring from people of parents from different regions of the earth. So it may be that the values are skewed but I find that in the video it was portrayed a bit too much of "the west vs the world."

Kimberly Barnett says:

I always thought that "weird" meant something like this:
W- wonderful
E- entertaining
I- interesting
R- real
D- different
This Acronym fits me and my family perfectly! But of course what yall were talking about is way awesomeness too!!!
