大概只有大佬才敢说实话吧。余生有限,实在没有时间浪费。

摘要

The main reason I rarely show up at case conferences is easily stated: The intellectual level is so low that I find them boring, sometimes even offensive.

Part I: What’s wrong?

  1. Buddy-buddy syndrome.
  2. “All evidence is equally good.”
  3. Reward everything – gold and garbage alike.
  4. Tolerance of feeble inferences.
  5. Failure to distinguish between an inclusion test and an exclusion test.
  6. Failure to distinguish between mere consistency of a sign and differential weight of a sign.
  7. Shift in the evidential standard, depending upon whose ox is being gored.
  8. Ignorance (or repression) of statistical logic.
    1. Forgetting Bayes’ Theorem.
    2. Forgetting about unreliability when interpreting score changes or difference scores.
    3. Reliance upon inadequate behavior samples for trait attribution.
    4. Inadequate consideration of whether and when the (fact -> fact) linkage is stronger or weaker than the (multiple-fact -> diagnosis -> fact) linkage.
    5. Failing to understand probability logic as applied to the single case.
  9. Inappropriate task specification.
  10. Asking pointless questions.
  11. Ambiguity of professional roles.
  12. Some common fallacies.
