I like quirky. I like offbeat things, quirky reasons why things happen. So does Richard Wiseman, a Psychologist based at the University of Hertfordshire. He’s coined a new discipline he calls ‘Quirkology‘, or "the use of scientific methods to study quirky human behaviour, or quirky methods to probe weightier topics" and has been conducting quirkological research for 15 years. His thinking is based on the theory that "we are strange creatures so we must be studied in strange ways", and he’s just released a book about it. As a taster, check out your powers of observation with his amazing new colour card trick.
