I noticed you didn't bother to post this quote
"Our research shows that low-effort thought promotes political conservatism, not that political conservatives use low-effort thinking.
I wonder if that is because it doesn't support your little theory? I would agree though... one does have to think long and hard to rationalize how
any idea from the left makes a lick of sense. One really has to do quite a bit of mental gymnastics in order to make complete nonsense sound like a
Not to mention, low effort thought is not synonymous with low intelligence as the "author" of this article would like to think. I would bet on a
conservative over a liberal any day of the week on an IQ test.
This is a farce of an article and an even larger farce of a "study" Also, I see no source as to what a "conservative" viewpoint is nor what type of
conservative they are talking about. Not to mention what the questions were?Wonder if the questions may have been a bit leading? It would take quite
a bit of low effort thought to simply take these results as anything close to representing truth or reality.
Not surprised that you jumped on it without questioning its validity as I am quite sure anybody who would create a post like this uses low effort
thought quite a bit.
This may come as a surprise but conservative is a catch all term that literally paints a large brush over a great number of people who have very
different political thoughts and views.
Also, did you bother to look at the sample size of the study and the people who participated? drunks and under-grads... certainly the best of the
best when it comes to creating conservative ideologies and original political thought.
