Here are my ResearchBlogging Editor's Selections for this week.
- First, something near and dear to our hearts. BPS Research Digest explains a recent paper investigating the links between bloggers' personalities and their word choices. "Some commentators have suggested that the internet allows people to present idealised versions of themselves to the world. Contrary to that idea, Yarkoni found that bloggers' choice of words consistently related to their personality type just as has been found in past offline research."
- A relative newcomer to the Psych/Neuro blogging community, Mike Lisieski of the Cephalove blog, discusses short- and long-term memory processes in cephalopods.
- What are the psychological consequences of money? Is money the arbiter of the fine line between self-interest and community? Another new blog, Psychothalamus, explains.
- How do the firefly dudes get the firefly girls? The Building Blogs of Science discuss a recent paper suggesting that teamwork among males pays off.
