A great many new ideas have crossed my path in the 20 years that I have been a practising psychologist. Beware of new ideas, they are horrific troublemakers, viruses infesting the magnificent conceptual tree of social science.
During my time as a student I learnt to defend myself against such alien concepts; at university they provided me with a ‘new ideas filter’.

It works like this: First I look at the academic status of the person from whom the idea has come. Is he famous? Do I remember any of his books? If so, it will always be better than an unknown. A Nobel Prize winner beats everyone. A doctor is worth more than a graduate, who in turn is higher than a student. A layman is just below a technical college student. A North American is always better than a West European. Australians are worth more than Israelis or East Asians, who are closely followed by us, the Dutch.

South Americans and black African scientists are at the bottom of this hierarchy. On a general level, seniors beat juniors and men beat women who, in turn, are way ahead of colleagues from ‘wrong’ adjacent academic disciplines. If the source of a new idea is lower than I am I may safely ignore it, but when the creator of a new concept passes this automatically-functioning built-in status test I will be very upset. To escape these feelings I may try to convince myself that this idea is not new at all but simply an old notion in a new suit. In a small number of cases this will fail and I will have to start looking for another excuse…..
