The example question from our tour is a really bad example of the questions we want on this site.


Could we please replace it with another highly voted question with multiple answers, such as:

The examples you give don't qualify for the tour because of their content (e.g., images, lists, quotes disqualify posts from appearing in the Tour for technical reasons).

The requirements can be found here, and the query found in that post shows that the current Tour example is the only one possible for CogSci at present.

  • I've tried to edit some questions to make them suitable according to that query. This question seems to fit the profile perfectly now. Could you explain why it is not shown in the query? May 24, 2017 at 9:22

I looked at the most upvoted questions and found these three questions that may be interesting (potentially after some minor editing):

Is multitasking a myth? (OP account is deleted)

What are good examples of applying dynamical systems in cognitive science? (answers are too long)

Can response time be incorporated into signal detection theory? (does not show in list, despite seemingly fitting the profile. Not sure what is missing)

What is the psychological term for disregarding correct but unwanted information? (not suitable given deleted account of one user)

How to recognize contempt (as suggested by Steven; needs two non-fancy formatted and good quality answers)


Behind every question I list why they are or aren't suitable (anymore). The bold question is my favorite potential question.

  • Given @gerry's answer, I think the last link is the only one elegible and even then, I'm not sure...

    @Seanny123, What about some of us try to formulate a new, rather simple, question. Might not be the best content again, and we must make sure it gets 5 upvotes, but we can at least put in a reference in the answers. Apr 29, 2017 at 8:04

    @RobinKramer The one you just flagged could be such a one when beaten into shape. Just did a first attempt at doing so.
