Liberalism~Psychoticism

Some interesting food for thought. I stumbled across this in the NY Post. It gave me some insight into the liberal mindset, which I think might help me understand them a little.

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.”

In the paper, psychoticism is associated with traits such as risk-taking, sensation-seeking, impulsivity and authoritarianism.

The journal said the error doesn’t change the main conclusions of the paper, which found that “personality traits do not cause people to develop political attitudes.”

But professor Steven Ludeke of the University of Southern Denmark, who pointed out the errors, told Retraction Watch that they “matter quite a lot.”

“The erroneous results represented some of the larger correlations between personality and politics ever reported; they were reported and interpreted, repeatedly, in the wrong direction,” he said.

 

Risk Taking

This study links the liberal mindset with risk taking. These people are more likely to abandon security and cast themselves to the winds of fate. This can be both a pro and a con.

On the positive side, this means liberals by and large are willing to step out without security, which can lead to great things. On the flip side, however, failure means destruction with no safety net.

 

Sensation Seeking

A personality trait defined by the search for experiences and feelings, that are “varied, novel, complex and intense”, and by the readiness to “take physical, social, legal, and financial risks for the sake of such experiences.”

Sensation-seeking can be divided into 4 traits:

  • Thrill- and adventure-seeking: Desire for outdoor activities involving unusual sensations and risks, such as skydiving, scuba diving, high-speed driving and flying.

Pretty self-explanatory.

  • Experience-seeking: Referring to new sensory or mental experiences through unconventional choices, also including psychedelic experience, social nonconformity and desire to associate with unconventional people.

Could explain the need to experience new things re: homosexuality, transgender, other sexual deviancies. Social nonconformity is not wanting to line up with established norms. Basically this all lines up with rebellion against authority.

  • Disinhibition: Preference of “out of control” activities such as wild parties, drinking and illegal activities

Again, a proclivity to rebel. Also why most homosexuals seem to fit in the liberal mindset, since their lifestyle is high-risk from the get-go. Also shows why they seek acceptance for their behavior. In the liberal mind, everyone that is sane thinks that risk taking is normal, hence their unwillingness to accept that there are others who don’t take their approach (BURN THE HERITIC!!!)

  • Boredom susceptibility: intolerance of repetition or boring people, and restlessness in such conditions.

Of course, to the liberal mind anything that is established as normal behavior is boring and the boundaries MUST be pushed.

Impulsivity

Leaping before looking. Going off of emotion not reason. AIDS did not become a thing without impulsive behavior. Having a thought or emotion flash through your mind doesn’t mean you have to act on it, or even dwell on it. Just because a bird flies over your head doesn’t mean you have to let it build a nest.

A lack of self-control. Of course, self-control is an oppressive established cultural norm so it must be opposed. It’s boring.

Authoritarianism

Which all leads to the desire to tell everyone else how they should be living up to your ideals, because after all, you’re much smarter than those oafish conservatives. How dare they prefer the established pillars of Western civilization? They’re boring.

Totalitarianism has been left-wing, for the most part. Hitler? Socialist. Stalin? Communist. Mao? Commie. Pol Pot? Commie.

Just trust your betters, they said. We know what’s best for you, they said. Remember that social norms are oppressive, they said.

Food for thought.

  1. Interesting, but I’m not convinced about the risk-taking. Perhaps it is domain dependent.

    It seems to me that people across the board are less willing to take risks than they used to be. People want to know the outcome of their actions to a very high degree of certainly, as if that knowledge does not come with a high cost.

    Maybe it comes from having more wealth and security so there is more (or seems more) to lose if a risk goes wrong.

    1. The most convincing correlate I’ve ever seen with is the amygdala.
      Extreme liberals have underactive amygdalas (“nothing is a threat – everyone is my friend!!!”), while extreme conservatives have overactive amygdalas (“kill every last one of the fuckin immgrants and shut the doors permanently”).
      Risk-taking correlates with youth.

      1. “kill every last one of the fuckin immgrants and shut the doors permanently”

        – Sounds like a plan!

            1. Listen, Slim. Jammy’s pockets ain’t deep enough to employ every Esperanza and Maria-Garcia-Vega-Velasquez that walks across that line in the dirt, ya dig?

      2. Risk-taking / youth makes a lot of sense.

        The young have fewer ties and less resources invested in them so it costs the group less if they die but everyone still benefits if they succeed.

        The group has less downside for risky youth than risky adults so group-distributed risky-youth genes will tend to survive if the world is dangerous enough for risk-taking to pay off but not so dangerous that they probably die.

        Maybe contributes to duel female mating strategy & older man / younger women; courting many exciting youths maximizes exposure to potential “lottery” winners, while age and stability selects for men who have already made successful risks.

        1. Exactly. We’ve rewarded youthful risk-taking with prime poon afterwards.

          That was always in the back of my head in my early twenties. I was somewhat successful with women (except for one dry spell when it seemed like I’d been sprinkled with girl-off), but I sensed it was still an uphill battle. In the back of my head I knew there was a cheat code, and that I would find it when I got a little older.

          Anybody here notice that getting laid got exponentially easier after age 27 or 28? (raises hand)

          1. That was when I got married and lost my virginity (in that order) but I don’t think I’m the target demographic for that question!

    2. Jammy’s probably got a point on this one. Many leftists are younger and hold these views due to their idealistic nature and lack of exposure. The youthfulness adds to the risk-taking aspect as well.

      1. “. Many leftists are younger and hold these views due to their idealistic nature and lack of exposure.”

        This 100%. Its hilarious to see some antifa hipster with his chinese made sold on ebay tweeting socialst memes on his $1000 iphone and saying how horrible the US is. Go ahead, go live in North Korea or fucking Angola.

      2. That makes sense.

        When they age they tend to diverge into a) more conservative, or b) wealthy leftists who can transfer risk away from themselves via their wealth.

        EDIT: or c) poor liberals who use welfare system to transfer risk away.

        This would tend to result in liberal upper and lower classes that transfer risk to middle class, which becomes defensively conservative. Once risk accruel becomes high enough middle class flips liberal to avoid receiving extra risk. System breaks because not enough people are left holding the bag.

  2. Hey has anyone heard anything about the millions of dangerous Caravan Qaeda terrorist job-stealing smallpox-infested liberal hostiles streaming toward our border?

    Because last week I was told that was a really big thing.

    Also, which caravan did mass murderer and cop-killer Ian David Long arrive in? Just curious.

      1. I got punched in the eye at an LA bar by a fucker that looked like a blonde gorilla, and I’m halfway sure it was that Sharknado prick.

    1. A newspaper, maybe in Guatamala, said close to 100 people in the caravan were arrested due to their ties to ISIS- who you gonna believe? me or your lyin eyes?

    2. 1) Right, because there are absolutely zero huge earth-shaking stories the Dems were promoting before the elections that utterly evaporated from the news after the election.

      2) Because we have homegrown bad guys… that means we should invite in even more foreign bad guys, too?

    3. “Also, which caravan did mass murderer and cop-killer Ian David Long arrive in? Just curious.”

      – We’ll deal with our home grown nuts. Don’t need any imports.

        1. I always do.

          Except for Rum.
          And Tequila.
          And Scotch I guess.
          Oh…and the Asians, and Russians…

  3. Liberalism = psychosis? Lets see if this holds up

    1) They can’t seem to face up through the facts
    check
    2) They can’t sleep because their beds on fire?
    Possible if antifa Molotov cocktails go off unsuspectingly
    3) THey start a conversation they can’t even finish?
    check
    4) When you have something to say their lips are sealed?
    check
    5) Ce que j’ai fait, ce soir là Ce qu’elle a dit, ce soir là Realisant mon espoir Je me lance, vers la gloire, okay
    Delusions of grandeur? Check
    6) They are vain and they are blind?
    check
    7) They hate people when they’re note polite
    so long as they get to define what it means to be polite…check
    Conclusion, JnJ is correct. Liberalism – psychosis.
    So: qu’est-ce que c’est (in terms of advice): You should Run far, far away, fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa-fa

  4. I wouldn’t put too much faith in this study, because it covers too much ground— there is only so much variance in any data set, and the more things you spread it over (psychopathy, neuroticism, whatever) the less reliable and interpretable the relationships become. On top of that, dimensions such as “authoritarianism” were designed by cultural marxists of the Chicago School as weapons to invalidate baseline American views. Turning that shit back around against the Left backfires, because it grants validity to their weapon.

    Liberal “thought” is today nothing more than reciting their orthodox creed on command (racist, sexist, misogynist, transphobic, blah, blah)— their metric for moral hygiene is how identically and loudly they recite it. They are NPCs (sorry, jammy).

  5. Liberalism in its modern form of White Guilt, Well-off guilt, and virtue signaling — is a SERIOUS mental illness.
    It is human nature to put yourself and your family first.
    Any subversion of this basic human instinct is a sign of serious psychological problems.

    1. In the natural world, I kind of see it as the cancer being eradicated. Survival of the fittest is the fucking rules of this planet, and simply laying down, hating yourself, and championing anyone other than you is signing your name away to be eradicated.

      1. ” Survival of the fittest is the fucking rules of this planet, and
        simply laying down, hating yourself, and championing anyone other than
        you is signing your name away to be eradicated.”

        Yes!!!

        Poolboytastico, give yourself a see-gar!

        1. Seeing the truth about the future of western civ? I got it

          Fucking 55 year old bags then brag about it…well…..

        2. *Poolboytastico gives himself a see-gar*

          *Poolboytastico develops cancer*

          *AutomaticSlim survives*

          Hmmmm clever strategy there!

      2. yes…but the problem is defining “fittest”

        Someone born into a 9 figure trust fund is, often times, going to be more fit for survival than someone who is physically, mentally and emotionally fit with no opportunity.

      3. Yes. But most whites didnt do that voluntarily. It took decades of the greatest propaganda campaign of all time to get tp where we are now

      1. If I were Disney I would get un-frozen from the cryo-lab and start banging those hot teens on my channel.

              1. Tyson.
                Hagler lost to Leonard.
                Tyson much harder puncher p4p.
                TBH, I think Joe Calzaghe (6’1″) EASILY beats Hagler (who was 5’9″) in their primes.

                Hagler was great, absolutely a HOFer, but he gets a lot of credit from the sensational Tommy Hearns KO. Remember that Hearns was a welterweight coming up to middlewieght. And Hearns went all out in that fight, came right to Hagler and made himself an easy target.

              2. That’s a tough one . If Mike were smaller he wouldn’t hit as hard. Both pretty slippery. If give Mike a slight edge

                1. Mike wouldn’t have hit as hard if he was smaller, true, but his accuracy would have been there. That combo he used where he threw a right hook to the body immediately followed by a right uppercut was amazingly accurate. Even if he didn’t have the weight, the accuracy of that combo couple with the way he was able to get velocity when he pivoted his hips would have taken out pretty much anyone. This, coupled with the fact that he was almost impossible to hit because of his absolute perfection of the cus peek a boo shit would have seen him through i think.

                1. I think it’s funny that people believe the future is going to be better. I’m really thinking we are going to be much more Mad Max or Warhammer 40k than the Jetsons or Star Trek at this point.

                  1. Right? Back to The Future said we’d have hoverboards by 2015….

                    And I dont mean those death trap skateboard things they have now

                    1. Actually, we have had actual, functioning hoverboards since 1988, but they are all stored in a secret warehouse in Area 51 to protect the childrens.

                  2. All apocalypses are better in theory.

                    In practice we are hungry, dirty, and cranky except for the guys at the top who are probably cannibals.

      2. They didnt have to wait, they started fresh about 4 years ago and completely forgot they even made original trilogy

  6. ” AIDS did not become a thing without impulsive behavior.”

    It also did not become a thing without 3rd world migration to first world countries.
    Thanks Hart-Cellar Act!!

      1. >country becomes brown
        >immediately becomes shithole like other brown countries
        >”huehuehue take dat, whitey”

  7. AJoPS published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error”.

    Calling it an error is a shade understated, no?

    Okay, just for shits and giggles, conspiracy theory time. What are the chances it was intentionally published with the “error” and eventually publishing a correction had been pre-planned?

      1. No, it isn’t like that, see. I had written that comment last night before I even read the article. I had planned to post it regardless of what the topic was today. Pure coincidence.

    1. i read somewheres that the brain is wired to remember(believe?) the first thing they here- so put out the disinfo, correct it later, but the brain wants to believe what it heard in the first place

          1. Flatchestedness doesn’t bother me at all.

            Now great big blown out roast beef pussy on the other hand…

  8. “The JammyBot3000 is experiencing a higher than usual amount of challenges to its shitposts- please hold, someone will get back to you shortly.”

    1. Jammy is down there in Florida, personally filing out as many of those “found-at-the-last-minute” ballots for the Dems as he can…

        1. Repubs are decent enough to steal the election beforehand, not do all this half-ass after-the-election fuckery like the Dems.

          1. Jammy in Broward:
            ballot….Toby Wong…votes for Gillum
            ballot…Charlie Fuckin Chan…votes for Gillum
            hey look! Another Toby Wong, also for Gillum
            hahaha

  9. Im 87.4% positive I saw a Top Gun 2 movie still with tom on a cycle and Olivia Wilde on the back- cant find it, so heres a fanboy trailer

      I’ll have you know that poor man was mentally challenged!
      It wasn’t his fault!!!
      When the little voices tell you to shoot, you shoot!

      1. Exactly why we dont need guns anymore in this country. You need ZERO mental screening to get one. Plus dont give me that 2nd amendment crap. The founding fathers were using muskets….

        1. Sure they do. They mean you are the moral equivalent of a bag of rat shit and, more importantly, lost the argument.

    1. sing the chorus and it goooooes
      i’m the real jammy
      yes i’m the real jammy
      all you other jammys are just imitating

        1. I’m like a head trip to listen to, ‘cause I’m only givin’ you
          Things you joke about with your friends inside your livin’ room
          The only difference is I got the balls to say it in front of y’all
          And I don’t gotta be false or sugarcoat it at all

          1. Don Trump don’t delete emails to destory records
            Well, I do, so fuck him and fuck you too!
            You think I give a damn about a Jammy??
            Half of you NPCs can’t even stomach me, let alone stand me

          2. So which one is which?

            I have to say, the guy posting the anti-gun stuff seems like the real JJB to me.

          3. Lemonade was a popular drink and it still is… I get more props and stunts than Bruce Willis. Heh.

      1. I’m the REAL BEARTASTICO. All you do is sit and get worked up that people don’t approve of your opinions and then post on a site with people who don’t like you to sneer. I’m thinking…you come out the bigger loser here, sugartits. Heh.

    1. Too many FUCKING WHITE MALES thats why. You get more then 2 white men together and it becomes a Klan rally in 5 minutes

    … High-T Pumpin’

    Son of Beartastico!!!

  11. So after the new congress convenes, how many days will it be before Bill Clinton boffs Ocasio-Cortez?

      1. Don’t know if I can agree with you here. I’m concerned about the amount of duct tape that might be required.

        1. I don’t feel my sister ever gave me the appropriate credit for getting her out of the habit of saying “like” every third word by slapping this shit out of her when she did it. Not all heros wear capes
