I haven't read Jussim's work - but your paper prompted me to read some of the other commentary on that book. It made me think that Jussim might be taking a stance close to that of Gigerenzer about bias (ecological rationality) without realizing it. In other words, Jussim sites studies of how well humans do in certain circumstances and deduces that this must mean that rationality is working well despite its discontents, when it could instead mean that biased heuristics are working well due to being used in an appropriate environment. Is that possible?

I agree Jussim's & Gigerenzer's projects do overlap. You probably are familiar w/ it, but I think the best "response" is another, earlier BBS target article:

Stanovich, K.E. & West, R.F. Individual differences in reasoning: Implications for the rationality debate? Behavioral and Brain Sciences 23, 645-665 (2000).
