    Science Says Liberals Are Psychotic

    Turns out liberals are the real authoritarians.

    A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong.

    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 tough-mindedness, risk-taking, sensation-seeking, impulsivity and authoritarianism.

    When most everyone opposes you, most times the problem is what you see in the mirror.

    Most were not opposed to him. Just the ones in power.

    Umm, two little things;

    Your story is almost two years old.

    Second, this is the only link in the article;
    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.
    That link leads to the AJPS's homepage and not to any 'correction'. Nor does it link to the original study or even give the studies name in the NYPost article.

    So, your two year old article is unsourced.



    EDIT
    I did finally find the article on Google Scholar.
    https://scholar.google.com/citations...ql0AAAAJ&hl=en.
    That is the original paper from 2012. I have not found the so-called 'correction' the NYPost is talking about.

    Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science. -C. Darwin
