Metacog Misfits

By Metacog Misfits
Join us in being social misfits and laugh with us as we fumble through life trying to be good humans.

We produce How to be a Good Human, Abnormal Humans, and Story Corner - all found here under Metacog Misfits!

For H2BGH, We focus on one social science research article and discuss how this article applies to being a good human.

For AH, we focus on the pasts of notorious abusers and speculate what made them tick.

Through our discussions, we include social and political commentary, as well as periodic comic relief.

Who Falls for Fake News?
This week we’re talking about fake news and the type of individual that tends to fall prey to this psychological manipulation tactic.  The researchers, from MIT and the University of Regina, respectively, recruited 1,606 participants from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk for three online surveys. Their aim was to unearth the psychological profile of individuals who fall prey to fake news.   For more info check out https://metacogmisfits.com Have a great week everyone!   PS: Mike, we’re sorry about that wink.
