I have been sooooooooo tempted to take a picture of the Muller Lyer illusion along to therapy with me to ask peoples in the waiting room whether they think the lines are of equal length or not.

I think this may be considered unethical, though...

Given that the best theory we've got and all would predict that I should induce a delusion in these people! Still, its a relatively safe place to go inducing delusions, I would have thought (and everyone thinks it is a crap prediction anyways).

Someone or other (Gleaves I think) was given ethical approval to attempt to induce DID in first year psych students! He wanted to show that the symptoms could be induced by hypnosis, and they let him!

I am tempted to say 'only in America' - but I should probably be a bit careful there ;-)
