Reading fiction makes people comfortable with ambiguity (http://www.psmag.com/blogs/news-blog/reading-literature-opens-minds-60021/).

So that's why this is such a smart group...

Hmmm.... I'm not so sure about that. I would want more detail about the research before I would believe that. Especially when this magazine doesn't seem to employ a proof-reader.

...so my subscription to Fantasy & Science Fiction doesn't count?

Haha!

I can't speak to the research but my experience concurs with the findings.

I think we need a definition of ambiguity. It may be fine in fiction but not in scientific research.
