Dunno. I got the impression very early on in my academic carreer that
the social scientists with the ability to reason correctly and
actually follow the scientific method were rare, and thus started
steering clear of social science for the same reason (pardon me, AI
researchers) I stay away from most AI research.

You are obviously an exception, but I don't know if you are enough to
get me away from my earlier impression of the subject.
