I’ll just post some here. All of these are hypotheses and by no means convictions.

– People with Asperger’s Syndrome don’t really have a higher IQ than average. They’re said to have higher IQ – probably since the ones with below-average IQ are tagged with full-blown autism.

– Mental conceptual structures (relatively inflexible after formation) often categorize a lot of things that wouldn’t be coupled with each other in another environment. For example, conservatives often tag teacher unions, environmentalists, and other Democrats together with each other – even though their association with the Democrats is really just a developmental coincidence
