Posted on August 29, by Scott Alexander [Epistemic status: Pieced together from memory years after the event. I may have mis-remembered some things or gotten them in the wrong order.
Aside from that — and the obvious jokes — this is all true. Some psychiatrists love this test. There was a study that supposedly proved this test worked. Why not join the great tradition of scientists, going back to Galileo and Newton, and make my mark on the world?
Why not replace my griping about bipolar screening with an experiment about bipolar screening, an experiment done to the highest standards of the empirical tradition, one that would throw the entire weight of the scientific establishment behind my complaint? For it would turn out a whole host of excellent reasons that I was about to learn.
It was locked, as always. After enough knocking, a lady finally opened the door and motioned for me to sit down at a paperwork-filled desk.
The training was several hours of videos about how the Nazis had done unethical human experiments. Then after World War II, everybody met up and decided to only do ethical human experiments from then on.
And the most important part of being ethical was to have all experiments monitored by an Institutional Review Board IRB made of important people who could check whether experiments were ethical or not.

She told me that was the short version. It started by asking about our study design, which was simple: When we got patients, I would give them the bipolar screening exam and record the results.
We usually got about twenty new patients a week; if half of them were willing and able to join our study, we should be able to gather about a hundred data points over the next three months.Imagine you’re in a meeting with 11 of your peers.
They are all in agreement and keen to move on. You are the only one to have doubts, but the stakes are extraordinarily high: a man’s life.
