Many applied statisticians perform collaborative research in a variety of fields, such as medicine, nursing, epidemiology, engineering, and business. Formal statistical training usually focuses on theoretical and technical aspects of analysing data in these fields. However, since statisticians should be involved in all steps of the scientific process, it is important to consider "soft skills" that go beyond the technicalities of statistical analysis. Inspired by Kuzon et al's 1996 paper regarding "Seven Deadly Sins of Statistical Analysis", as well as my own 30 years of experience in statistical collaboration, this talk contains a discussion of seven categories of errors, most of which are nontechnical in nature. It is the goal that consideration of such issues will lead to improved "best practices" of applied statisticians.
