What are some of your favorite intellectual fads?

For me, the 'nudge' idea has been so overblown and misconstrued with poor psychology data mixed with lacking data I have trouble taking anyone serious.

I worked in Advertising for years and the ideas presented were not much different. There are still some great ideas, and people, but god damn did it get overblown.

@Zim I'm not sure how to feel about all the cognitive bias hype. It seems like the pendulum has swung too far the other way and now everything is a bias that needs to be corrected for :/
