Default Study Suggests Low IQ, Social Conservatism, Prejudice Go Hand In Hand

Another case of stating the obvious.
Quote:
Are claims that conservatism is “anti-science” as valid as those that science is “anti-conservative?” No one has really asked or found an answer, but a new study from Brock University in Ontario will be sure to spark that very conversation. Psychologists have found that racism and general prejudice as well as social conservatism are linked to low IQ levels.

The research finds that children with low intelligence are more likely to hold prejudiced attitudes as adults. These findings point to a vicious cycle, according to lead researcher Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario. Low-intelligence adults tend to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, the study found. Those ideologies, in turn, stress hierarchy and resistance to change, attitudes that can contribute to prejudice, Hodson wrote in an email to LiveScience.

Hodson was quick to note that the despite the link found between low intelligence and social conservatism, the researchers aren't implying that all liberals are brilliant and all conservatives stupid. The research is a study of averages over large groups, he said.

"There are multiple examples of very bright conservatives and not-so-bright liberals, and many examples of very principled conservatives and very intolerant liberals," Hodson said.

Nosek gave another example to illustrate the dangers of taking the findings too literally.

"We can say definitively men are taller than women on average," he said. "But you can't say if you take a random man and you take a random woman that the man is going to be taller. There's plenty of overlap."
This sort of study is frequently used by lieberals to justify their elitist social prejudice when claiming that they are smarter than everyone else and therefore know what's best for others. The incompetent fumbling and bumbling of the current administration is ample proof of that fallacy.

Another ugly liberal according to researchers.

It's official: Conservatives are hotter

OTTAWA - Are right wing politicians better looking than left wing politicians?

That’s what a group of Finnish and Swedish researchers claim.

The study, titled The Right Look: Conservative Politicians Look Better

and Their Voters Reward It, had 2,513 non-Finnish respondents evaluate the facial appearance of 1,357 Finnish political candidates. The result, right wing candidates were deemed hotter.

Female candidates on the right had a larger “beauty gap” over their left wing opponents than men did. The researchers argued that when the candidates were less well known, such as in municipal elections, looks play a bigger role in swaying voters.

No similar studies have been conducted in Canada but each year The Hill Times, a newspaper focused on Parliament Hill publishes a “Sexiest MP” list. Two Conservative MPs routinely hit the top of that list, Peter MacKay and Rona Ambrose.

MacKay has been voted the sexiest MP in all but one of the last twelve years while Ambrose has come out on top of the sexiest female MP list for the last three years.

Others on the list have been Justin Trudeau (Lib), Maxime Bernier (Con) and Scott Brison (Lib) on the male side and Helena Guergis (Con), Megan Leslie (NDP) and Ruby Dhalla (Lib) for the women

The difference is that what I posted was an actual study. You only posted some right wing art.


If you think conservative women are hotter, then you obviously haven't visited any of the nations college campuses.

Fear factor: The science behind America's red/blue divide
30 January 2012

Americans are as divided as ever between Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives. Is there a psychological foundation for the red/blue split?

Researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln are studying liberals' and conservatives' reactions to happy or pleasant photographs and scary or sad ones in an effort to learn more about the cognitive underpinnings of political preference.

The findings? Conservatives tend to concentrate more on images considered to be negative, while liberals' eyes tend to linger on positive images, says political science professor John Hibbing.

The BBC's Matt Danzico visited the university, where the researchers were employing eye-tracking kit on subjects who were also asked to fill out a political questionairre.
