Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

There's no gentle way to put it: People who give in to racism and prejudice may simply be dumb, according to a new study that is bound to stir public controversy.

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.

"Prejudice is extremely complex and multifaceted, making it critical that any factors contributing to bias are uncovered and understood," he said.

Re: Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

Not surprised

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

More dumb opinions by some tweaked people who have jobs doing "research." Everyone has prejudices. Period.

...and unfortunately, there's a butt-load of dumb American voters casting ballots who support their fellow comrade-dummies.

Yeah, the difference is that smart people are not proud of them.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Low IQ & Conservative Beliefs Linked to Prejudice

So my IQ, at 106, is the most common one? Meh, IQ doesn't earn you a salary, ambition and drive do

Regardless of intelligence, they're still entitled to their opinion.

The sad irony is that he didn't notice the article does not link being conservative with having a low IQ.

It linked having a low IQ and being a conservative to being prejudiced, which implies that intelligent conservatives are presumably no more prejudiced than stupid liberals, average moderates, etc.
