Priming – the defense, and the questioning.
David Shanks is very skeptical about priming and un-conscious/sub-conscious forces pushing us around as so many pieces of pollen in a drop-of water, as I’ve reported before. He has some data to back it up.
Today, Matt Craddock tweeted in this reply from Ap Dijsterhuis, where he defends priming of intelligence (that is the one Shanks critiques in the video I linked in). Well worth a read since it is a detailed critique of Shanks work.
And, meanwhile, Rolf Zwaan is looking at priming on his blog. Well worth following.
