I’m sad to say,

MANY of the seminal psych studies that I learned in Psych 101 were pure scientific fraud. It’s stunning to me. My dad was also a psychology professor, and I quite literally grew up with those studies. Dad had a bookshelf full of psych texts. I had read many of them by age 12.

So it’s rather disorienting to come to find out that many of those foundational studies were pure bunk. The Stanford prison experiment, Milgram, Schacter, etc. ALL fraudulent. And NONE can be replicated.
