No, it’s not The Incentives—it’s you – [citation needed]
"I won’t go so far as to suggest that we scientists take pride in behaving badly—we obviously don’t—but we do seem to have collectively developed a rather powerful form of learned helplessness that doesn’t seem to be matched by other communities."

Impossibly Hungry Judges
"If hunger had an effect on our mental resources of this magnitude, our society would fall into minor chaos every day at 11:45 a.m. Or at the very least, our society would have organized itself around this incredibly strong effect of mental depletion. Just like manufacturers take size differences between men and women into account when producing items such as golf clubs or watches, we would stop teaching in the time before lunch, doctors would not schedule surgery, and driving before lunch would be illegal. If a psychological effect is this big, we don’t need to discover it and publish it in a scientific journal—you would already know it exists."

It's Always Sunny in Correlationville: Stories in Science | Psychology Today
"Data don't speak for themselves. I've been to a few painful lab meetings where a new grad student tried letting data speak for themselves. It is ugly. Even interesting data, without interpretation, are boring to the point of being pointless. " Which is a problem, because the story might be corroborated by the data but might not in any way be solid evidence for precisely that story as opposed to any other explanation that fits the data.
