Popcorn reinforcement

Miss Conduct, one of the columnists from The Boston Globe, has picked up on our post about the uncanny resemblance between psychologist Joey Tempest and 80s rock legend Steven Pinker, and noted several other surprising likenesses in the world of cognitive science.

Pictured is the probably-separated-at-birth behaviourist B.F. Skinner and popcorn mogul Orville Redenbacher.

There are several others which raise the question whether celebrities have been routinely disguising themselves as psychologists throughout the years.

Or whether psychologists have been disguising themselves as celebrities. Or wombats, in one case.

Link to Miss Conduct on psychology likenesses.

    I see the link in my last post is not working. It should be:

    Interestingly, in the URL box it gets resolved differently.
    Oh well…
