We are all individuals. All those brain studies you see that put “this type of person” vs “that type of person”? Most of it is BS. The problem? The interpretations of the findings. In all the brain scans done with autism, the meta analysis of different studies shows zero consistency across studies. Zero. What does that mean? Their findings may be wrong. This holds true for “differences between men’s and women’s brains” or any two “groups” of people. Yet, media and book authors leap on the slightest differences reported. Are they right? We tend to believe anything that says “Science” on it, peer reviewed, showing up in journals. But are they right? Watch this talk.
