Olifactory eavesdropping?

Today's Annals of Improbable Research mini-blog points out the following paper:
"Olfactory Eavesdropping by a Competitively Foraging Stingless Bee, Trigona spinipes," James C. Nieh, Lillian S. Barreto, Felipe A. L. Contrera, and Vera L. Imperatriz-Fonseca, Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B, vol. 271, Aug. 7, 2004, pp. 1633-40.


They point out this paper:
"Self-Evaluative Intrusive Thoughts Impede Successful Searching on the Internet," Penny L. Yee, Ingrid Hsieh-Yee, Gregory R. Pierce, Rebekah Grome and Lindsey Schantz, Computers in Human Behavior, vol. 20, no. 1, January 2004, pp. 85-101. The authors note that:

"Participants who experienced more self-evaluative intrusive thoughts were also less satisfied with their search performance."

Finally, they point out this 110 page James Heckman working paper in which he self-cites 30 times.
