Which ones stand out to you?
Here are a few of mine:
- Myer's Briggs - from the way it was developed to the problems with repeatability, the MBI is widely considered junk science and yet we see it mentioned again and again.
- Triune brain - less junk science than just outmoded, the idea that we have a lizard brain has been show to be wildly inaccurate. There are just way better models. Also, the way its used in most contexts we can just cut it out and not have a loss. It's time to see this outdated model retired from good in quality circles. The tool using crows will be less likely to plot our demise.
- Learning styles - The majority of studies disprove the popular idea that students learn better if the pedagogic technique matches their supposed style, the myth persists. This is a hard one to shake, pretty sure I've fallen into using this one recently.
The snarky part of me wants to generate a bad science bingo card for WCQI.
