Author of "Unique - Like Everybody Else" blog
Psychology graduate with boundless curiosity. I blog on Psychology Today about a range of subjects that interest me. I have a particular interest in personality and intelligence. Scientific controversies are best approached with a level head and a regard for truth over politics or ideology in my view.
