I've finally found a useful overview of findings in psychology that were once in high esteem but are now refuted. See: https://www.gleech.org/psych Many of the things were in psychology textbooks quite recently, including: Macbeth effect Pygmalion effect Ego depletion Power posing Stanford prison ‘experiment’ and the Milgram experiment Multiple intelligences If I understand correctly, the change in psychology towards replication and critical reviewing popular theories and findings started after Daryl Bem published a paper on precognition in 2012. It used the same methods and statistical techniques respected researchers use, but to 'demonstrate' an absurd point namely that undergraduates can improve their memory test performance by studying after the test. The overview notes about this paper: "This one is fun because Bem’s statistical methods were “impeccable” in the sense that they were what everyone else was using. He is Patient Zero in the replication crisis, and has done us all a great service." The replication crisis in psychology helps me to understand and grasp what has happened in ME/CFS where scientific research seems to have made some awful mistakes. Science seems to have been using standards that are way too low. it is difficult to explain to outsiders how experts and researchers could be so wrong. In my experience, the replication crisis in psychology helps to explain things because it is very recent history. This might be a provocative idea but perhaps quacks such as Parker and Gupta will show the way forward by using the same methods of GET/CBT researchers but with absurd conclusions. Much like what happened after Bem, it may become obvious that standard researcher methods used in the GET/CBT literature aren't reliable. Perhaps homeopathy proponents should start setting up non-blinded trials with subjective outcomes and a waiting-list control group?
