The Scientific Skeptic

In everyday life. we are regularly exposed to various claims about human psychotogy and human behavior. While some of
these claims may be scientifically valid, many of them are not. Choose a psychological claim about which you are
skeptical. If you are having trouble thinking of one, think about common areas of pseudoscience that you may have heard
about (e.g., astrology, ESP, hypnosis) to help you generate ideas.Develop a research question that you
have about the claim. Discuss how the scientific method could be used to test your research question as compared to one
of the other methods mentioned in the module (method of tenacity, method of authority. a priori method).
