Links this week:

  1. Why idiots succeed.

  2. Rory Sutherland on social norms.

  3. Economics incentives versus nudge (pdf). Don’t forget that basic economic mechanisms can work.

  4. We’re related to our friends.

  5. Are there really trillion dollar bills on the sidewalk?

  6. A bash of the Myers-Briggs test. Personally, I’m a fan of the big five plus g. On g, the heritability of chimp IQ.

  7. Talent versus practice. Talent wins this one.

  8. Throwing away money on brain science.
