Science says liberals, not conservatives, are psychotic

Via Billy
 The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.

“The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed,” the journal said in the startling correction.
“The descriptive analyses report that those higher in Eysenck’s psychoticism are more conservative, but they are actually more liberal; and where the original manuscript reports those higher in neuroticism and social desirability are more liberal, they are, in fact, more conservative.”


  1. Is it amazing that many papers are now determined by the way the wind blows? 'Tis just another apportion.

  2. I was visibly surprised to discover the New York Post published this headline. Yet I'm sure they'll persist in their snide attitude of non-New Yorkers being uncivilized rubes. Such a mentality is impermeable.

    1. About all I can say is they're better than the times, but that ain't saying much! :)
