Inspired by the psychology replication quiz, I've come up with four rules to tell bullshit studies in psychology from real ones:

1. The rule of antisignificance

2. The rule of Taleb's grandma

3. The rule of multiplicity

4. The rule of silicone boobs

And finally, a reason why this could mean that there's a brighter future for good psychology research.
