Late last week, a group of scientists published some pre-review research indicating that people were more likely to use low-saturation Instagram filters like Inkwell when feeling depressed. Well, obviously, says Picasso. Groundbreaking stuff, guys. Even if there's a real association between filters and feelings, the paper's data hasn't been vetted by other scientist—so it's still a bit premature to act like a keyboard psychiatrist whenever you see a friend's selfie recreating Eric Draven's rooftop guitar solo from The Crow .

Though the debate between simulation and tacit-theory is still raging in psychology and philosophy, there has been growing support for a hybrid position which accepts that some of our predictions are made through belief and desire attribution, and others are made through simulation (Kuehberger and Perner 1997). In this paper I wish to embellish on this view of how we predict behavior. I will do this through examining two sets of questions which are not sufficiently addressed within this debate:

Within the tacit-theory, How do we develop the database? That is, How do we gain knowledge about human behavior in specific circumstances? How does one know that there are no other salient characteristics in a situation? And, How does one adjudicate between two conflicting rules?

Within simulation, How is it that we have to ability to predict our own behavior? That is, How do we know what we would do in a given circumstance? How do we learn how to behave?

We make many decisions based on how we think we'll feel in the future, but often those predictions are wrong. Studies are showing we can't accurately predict how we'll feel and so it may be best to just stop trying.

[I]t is probably best to remember that there are lots of factors that affect how happy you will be in the future, and that no single event will have that big an influence on that happiness.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten a skeptical look followed by, “so, are you trying to read my mind right now?”, after telling people I was enrolled in a psychology course. Yep, because psychology actually teaches people how to read everyone else’s mind. And it hasn’t been announced to the public because it’s a secret that only psychology students know; they’re sworn to secrecy.

Psychology isn’t about reading minds or trying to control others, per se. There’s no voodoo magic behind the science, and psychology professors aren’t out to manipulate their students to get them to do what they want. The four main goals of psychology are to describe, explain, predict and control the behavior and mental processes of others.

Control!? Yeah, you heard me right. But it’s not control in the way that you’re imagining, I promise! Let’s review these four goals in more detail.

This information could be used to determine which patients are most likely to benefit from additional therapies to head off the spread of the cancer to other areas of the body.

With a new single cell analysis service in U-M's Comprehensive Cancer Center, the researchers are making the necessary technology more widely available in the university system. They hope these "liquid biopsies" will be offered to patients within the next five years.

Circulating tumor cells, representing only about one in a billion cells in the bloodstream, are largely untapped sources of information about tumors, but new methods are bringing their diagnostic value ever closer to patient care.
