  • 5:19 the man is not guilty yet he should be held in a safe area until the tumor is successfully removed.

  • maybe its me but he comes off as really love Psychology. Best kind of people to learn from.

  • This guy loves what he does

  • Psychology is a very interesting topic… But a very strange one as I realized watching Jhon Watson (16:00).

    Just 20 years replicating The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

  • thank you for this great resource!

  • He fumbled on the rotation dating thing at about 56:00. You'd need an exact mirror of the data from when men rotate when the women rotate in order to prove movement is the only factor. John would probably do a face-palm if someone pointed it out to him.

  • Good

  • Thank you for the free class!

  • +Penswordking You are right, this result suggest that both effects work to some degree. Men are more likely to say "yes" in general, but when the women are rotating, the two effects cancel each other out.

  • i like this professor.  Those stats are wonderfully interesting

  • After watching the lecture for the first time in my life I got the reason why things are the way they are in my life… and why do I excel in one field and in not another… Excellent Lecture

  • cool i love psychology

  • this is the most interesting psychology lecture ive ever listened to. so good.

  • I am glad this is the same dude in the previous video I watched. I like this dude. Kinda annoying how he makes jokes and laughs to himself. Still he captivates myself, and makes it interesting

  • I just read Freakanomics. It was a very good book, I do reccomend it and it was awesome seeing it referenced in this video

  • Ironic how he mentions something about being worried about global warming, and in the next sentence starts talking about aversion to skepticism…

  • love MIT and sometimes I wonder ..what. wonderful thing internet is ….blessed !!

  • It could be that somebody misinterpreted the study 500 years ago.

  • Wow. How sad that the first video has over 260k views and 1.8k likes, but the second one has less than a third. So many undedicated people in this world.

  • he is so geeky

  • I am super intelligent and the more people praise my intelligence, the better I perform. I guess I am an exception to the rule.

  • more girls raised by their fathers and not their mother comette suicid than girls / children raised by mothers and not fathers and there are more suicides cometted by ppl / kids who s parents have had a divorce. no evadence? you need more research

  • The linear algebra professor ought to erase the board at the end of the lecture.

  • are students more likely to rate a lecture as boring if a professor is constantly looking at his watch?
