On Human Nature in general
This paper is about "people from Western, Educated, Industrialized, Rich, and Democratic (WEIRD) societies. In particular, it’s about the  Western, and more specifically  American, undergraduates who form the  bulk of the database in the experimental branches of  psychology,  cognitive science, and economics, as well as allied fields."
