This article is not factually verifiable. Huge tracts of text have no inline citations. The article sources do not pass WP:MEDRS. Despite the major work done here, efforts do not appear to be there to improve sourcing by citing uncited text and adding sources that meet WP:MEDRS. At the same time, this reads like an essay. It relies heavily on primary sources, which as a WP:MEDRS no no. It is not ready and these things cannot be easily fixed inside a week. --LauraHale (talk) 07:45, 27 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello. I have went through and fixed the inline citations and essay-like writing. In psychology it is a common practice that we do not use books, but rather use scientific and peer edited articles. In psychology these are very appropriate and correct sources to use. For example, the article entitled 'Confirmation Bias' has been granted the "good article status" by Wikipedia. This article uses all primary journal articles as its sources, as I have. Thank you. Damicocar (talk) 19:30, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
