The View Scrunts: Say, Do You Think That Judge Let Off the Standford Rapist Because They Were Culturally Similar to One Another...? | Main | Hillary Clinton Makes "Delete Your Account" Joke Because She Knows We're In a Degenerated Fallen Republic And She's Above The Law

The March of Science.

In 2012, lefties moistened their crotches over a study that proved that conservative-leaning people scored higher in "psychoticism," a bizarre term meant to convey a devotion to authoritarian power structures. Lefties, meanwhile, tended towards "neuroticism" (neurotic behavior), and had a pronounced drive to increase their "social desirability" -- that is, they were people who favored getting along with their social fellows, not making waves.

In an update/correction just released, it is now revealed that they misread the chart -- it was lefties, not righties, who scored the highest for "psychoticism." And of course "Neuroticism."

It turns out it was the conservative leaning people who scored highest on "social desirability," looking to get along with other people without conflict.

So, kind of a big correction, huh?

Turns out the left is simultaneously more afraid of the world, more spazzy-jumpy at at any shadow, and more willing to submit to large authoritarian power structures to protect them, and the right's main sin is wanting to get along with the crowd too much.

"Science."

Thanks to spongeworthy.
