Food for thought

Here's a blog post worth reading: The Meaningfulness of Lab-Based Aggression Research

The main take-away from the post is the need to focus more on assuring our research results replicate, that our measures of aggression are sufficiently valid (in this case meaning actually relate in some meaningful way to aggression in everyday life), and that in the meantime we be cautious about what our research is actually telling us. To me this seems fairly common-sense, but regrettably needs repeating.
