Story
Tagline
Author of "Unique - Like Everybody Else" blog
Introduction
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.
Bragging rights
Bungee jumped in Cairns. Parasailed in Austria (much less scary than bungee jumping!). Snorkelled on the Great Barrier Reef.
