A Recent Pysch Study Shows: Don't Trust Studies

So ... can we believe this one?

A new psychological study reveals: we shouldn't believe psychological studies.

These findings are based upon the discovery that three out of four psych studies conducted are unable to be reproduced. And the ones that can be replicated 100 percent of the time are "likely to be trite, boring and probably already known; yes, dead people can never be taught to read," says Alan Kraut from the Association for Psychological Science. 

But that's not necessarily a bad thing according to science expert Joshua Kirsch, who referred to non-reproducible studies as "one of the most beautiful things about science" on HuffPost Live on Tuesday.
