People with lower emotional intelligence are more likely to hold right-wing views, study finds

quote [ New research from Belgium provides evidence that deficits in emotion understanding and emotion management are related to right-wing and prejudiced thoughts. ]

Do with a single study what you will. I know I won't care.

Ape groups benefited from a solid percentage emotionally willing to kill outsiders

Ape must never kill ape.

But emotionally unwilling to bite eachother's faces off. That seems to be the split between us and chimpanzees. Our common ancestors voted on face-mauling, and we're descended from the ones who said 'no'.

should I link you to face eating floridian cannibals?

theory busted! 😋

Theory confirmed. We find them repulsive and subhuman. Our species are not face eaters.

Chimps, collectively, as a majority of their species, go for the face first. They are cute until age 3 and then they will bite off your fingers and eat your face. They see nothing wrong with that. They will not be excluded from their society for doing that to other chimps.

If you eat someone's face, you're not really welcome in human society ever again.

Was that the bonobo split off?

There's been a series of imaging studies that show brain damage tends to correlate with (and in some studies, precede) increases in religious fundamentalism, inflexibility, and conservatism.

Of course, fundamentalism and conservatism might lead to behaviors that cause brain injury (e.g., joining military, rejecting safety precautions as nanny state interventions, etc.)

Yes, and all right-wingers have tiny dicks and ugly faces too. No bias here, just facts as people choose to represent them.

With a face like that? Hell no!

What's left of it.

Typical liberal move, right? Suggesting that political opinions are correlated to appearance or sexual proclivities. What a bunch of soyboy cucks.
rylex said @ 1:42am GMT on 10th Sep
for the record, you were the one accusing your homies of being little dicked uggos. we are the ones saying you're low on emotional intelligence.
cb361 said @ 6:49pm GMT on 8th Sep
Dicks are dicks.

As the meme goes, I don't know how to explain to you that you should care about other people.
