We’re REALLY going to miss , our philosopher-in-residence (turned cognitive scientist?) who’s off to next month! Keep an eye out for her brilliant + creative + important interdisciplinary work on gender stereotypes and visual attention.

This is a particularly compelling example of the more general phenomenon of Troxler fading. Can't find the original source of this image (let me know if you can!), but you can use this as an excuse to learn about its grandfather, Ignaz Paul Vital Troxler!

I'm not sure this fits, but: most ppl think the Y2K thing was a scam/needless panic. They don't realize that there weren't massive failures in banking, energy, etc, bc of the time & money that went into fixing computers; they think nothing happened bc there wasn't a real problem.

I’ve often seen folks here ask for examples of popular-but-false scientific ideas. But what about the reverse? Are there ideas or theories that the public thinks are false/refuted when really they aren’t?
