Are you thinking? Toward "A Rationality Quotient"

Professor Keith. Stanovich  and colleagues Richard. West, and Maggie. Toplak have a terrific new book out which focuses not on how well we reason at our best (the domain of cognitive ability research), but systems that affect when people reason and when they use default mechanisms that don't involve effortful cognition. Highly recommended!

Looking for a post doc? Able to analyse and write-up cognitive ability data?
