Links this week:

  1. A good Jared Diamond interview.

  2. The 10,000 hours rule - the best you can do is find the peak of your own ability.

  3. Tinder works because a picture is “worth that fabled thousand words, but your actual words are worth… almost nothing”. (HT: Razib)

  4. Dumb incentives, although economists would be the first to point out a lot of the unintended consequences.

  5. No evidence for the benefits of expertise for fund managers.

  6. Drunks are more utilitarian. And maybe you should do that drinking on an empty stomach.

  7. Are social psychologists biased against Republicans?
