Research Boasts it Can "predict political leanings...by looking at brain structure"

The finding was reproduced in another sample of participants, leading researchers to estimate they could predict political leanings with 72% accuracy by looking at brain structure. New York University's Professor John Jost, one of the world's leading authorities in political psychology, told The Psychologist magazine: "It is a useful contribution because it builds on and extends previous work. "It will probably be several years before we understand the full meaning of these results. In the meantime, the field of political neuroscience could do worse than having Colin Firth as a scientific ambassador."


Sorry if the title is misleading but there's a character limit.

Somehow I feel that Colin Firth is the least interesting part of this article...
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

So when their brain is undersized they're liberals, right?

72% accuracy isn't particularly good.

His user title says 'banned.' But banned users don't have sigs.

He then continued the research with a further 90 participants which found that Liberal and Conservative attitudes were associated with thicker areas of parts of the brain.


Specifically, conservatives are thicker overall.

Liberals are idiots. Then again so are conservatives.
