Thanks a lot - there's a more concise and punchier summary of
both studies at Psychology Today:

http://tinyurl.com/6pynsqf

"How Mistakes Can Make You Smarter"

and hopefully may add them to a growing list of summaries and
abstracts  - at:

www.perceptions.couk.com/magic2.html#more1

which so far is as follows (along with text articles)

"dogmatics/skeptics tend to be blind to unexpected phenomena"

www.perceptions.couk.com/no-see.txt


"nervous people tend to be more dogmatic"

www.perceptions.couk.com/nerv-pol.txt


"People who feel anxious, helpless turn to religion & extremism"

www.perceptions.couk.com/rel-anx.txt


"Smarter people more inclined to non-traditional values"

www.perceptions.couk.com/intell-eccentric.txt

Have also just tried a Google scholarly article search and it
seems there's a good deal of effort going into 'classifying'
folk by responses and brain shape differences, and, maybe more
worryingly, a lot of (gov't subsidized?) work on chemical,
electrical, electronic methods of 'control' (of emotion,
cognition) for various folk.

Maybe gov't would like us all to be 'nervous dogmatic skeptics'?
If only because they're much easier to control?


Cheers
