  As an admittedly dogmatic sciency person, who hangs out with lots of other dogmatic sciency people, I have to say that I find this explanation, particularly the top quote, really interesting. I don't often get to hear why it is that science makes people frustrated.   I would argue, however, that skeptics are more open-minded than they seem -- science is willing to consider lots of different types of treatments (assuming they have *some* basis, as prosciencemum says, in...
Okay, no one yell at me, but I learned something from Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child.

Second, all procedures (lining up, raising hands, putting supplies away) need to be actively taught, and it usually takes a couple of weeks and a LOT of repetition before students get it right.
