New Study Reveals Low IQs And Conservative Values Lead To Prejudice!

| Filed under: Etc.

Well, we could have told you this without a research project!

According to the findings of a study conducted by Gordon Hodson, a psychologist at Brock University in Ontario, adults with lower intelligence are more prone to gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, which, because they stress a resistance to change, also leads to prejudice!

According to social and cognitive psychologist Brian Nosek:

"They've pulled off the trifecta of controversial topics. When one selects intelligence, political ideology and racism and looks at any of the relationships between those three variables, it's bound to upset somebody. The unique contribution here is trying to make some progress on the most challenging aspect of this. It's not that a relationship like that exists, but why it exists."

However, he continues:

"We can say definitively men are taller than women on average. But you can't say if you take a random man and you take a random woman that the man is going to be taller. There's plenty of overlap. My speculation is that it's not as simple as their model presents it. I think that lower cognitive capacity can lead to multiple simple ways to represent the world, and one of those can be embodied in a right-wing ideology where 'People I don't know are threats' and 'The world is a dangerous place'. … Another simple way would be to just assume everybody is wonderful."

Well, truth!

There are so many variables and factors of the human condition that can lead to prejudice, but then again, we've always associated that word with IGNORANCE!

Because intelligent people know that there is ALWAYS room to learn and understand more - even if they think they have it all figured out!

    The beauty with a study like this is statistics. I can make numbers say anything I want. In fact, I bet I can produce a study that says low IQs and liberal values leads to idiocy!

    What a load of crap lmao

    Yeah really, what did they do test 500 people and publish this? It's hard to take any of these studies seriously. Most in which are done using dumb as rocks college kids in their 20's, polling such a small number of people and then publishing it.

    Blacks act like monkeys. You can pull up proven factual numbers when it comes to hispanics and blacks about how many of them are in jail compared to whites.

    Gays are a genetic screw up. This is science fact.

    They equate conservative values to intelligence. I don't want to date some skank thats laid on her back for 2038409 men, how would that make me unintelligent exactly? Considering that would be a conservative value.

    BS propaganda

    Re: NookiesWA – and you are a homophobic, racist loser who really needs to put a f*cking smile on.

    You're probably one of these conservatives. Get. a grip. and don't. be. so. HATEFUL

    the study was conducted by one person?…and he's a psychologist at a university which means he's probably very much a liberal so of course he's going to release a "study" that bashes conservatives. i think if people have traveled a lot, seen other cultures, and have an education they may be less prejudice but connecting conservative people with low IQs is really ridiculous.



  6. 6

    It makes sense…let's be honest here. Not everyone who is lower intelligence is this bad….not at all! I just understand how this could work.

    And haha…people bashing about studies? yeah.. I'm sure if there was a "study" about how "bad" gays were..you would probably be like YEAH IT'S TRUE!

    a*ses!

    Re: NookiesWA – Given that the world is overpopulated with 7 billion people and 33, 000 children starve to death every day, being straight would seem the genetic screw up.



  8. 8

    I'm taking this as a 100% fact coming from a fairly conservitave family myself LOL.

    Re: NookiesWA – You're so obsessed with all things gay that people can't help but wonder what issues you have with your own sexuality. If you were secure in who you are, you wouldn't care. You care tooooo much.



  10. 10

    While other studies have shown that guys who suck dicks and take it up the ass are usually liberals.

    Re: NookiesWA – Man don't make me talk about my parents. My fathers friend was a black man who was a cop. His son is very well known in Hollywood. I had a lesbian great aunt and was raised around 2 gay men. Who were great cooks btw :) . The difference was no one "talked" about it. But as far as the jail systems go there is truth to the population. But to call people monkeys is ignorant. That has to do with education and upbringing. White folks surpressed these people for decades upon decades. In time I believe those statics will change. The new generation is much more open minded and educated. They have better role models for today. Look at our President.

    Re: Mr. Strat – or closeted conservatives dying to come out. Anyways, stop that nonsense. I'm sure somewhere there are some gay conservitives. The worlds not black & white like we think it is.

    Re: Mr. Strat – Don't forget the number one cause of the spread of HIV



  14. 14

    Re: NookiesWA – The no. 1 cause of the spread of HIV are heterosexuals having unsafe sex given that over 90% of people with HIV in the world are heterosexuals. Just look at Africa and Asia where AIDS is rampant and all heterosexual. Get educated.



  15. 15

    Re: Mr. Strat – Other studies show that guys who are dicks and have a stick up their ass are conservatives.



  16. 16

    people, please, ignore the conservative ignorant stuck in their own decadent time, don't dignify their deplorable existence with a response.



  17. 17

    btw: is this this new AMAZING DISCOVERY supposed to be shocking?



  18. 18

    Statistics are good when & only when they're done in a correct way. An example of an incorrect & imprecise statistics is the Kinsey report that 10% of America was gay. We know for a fact nowadays that that is complete and total poppycock, thanks to real & serious research.

    I can't say whether or not this particular research is real or total rubish. I can only say statistics in general should be treated with kid gloves

    Re: NookiesWA – It's cute how you came on here right away, so excited and ready to tell everyone all the "facts" YOU "know," expecting everyone to be on your side…and everyone disagrees. =)

    Besides, like Alexima said, this is ooooooold news. I'm pretty sure none of us expect to see psychos like Michele Bachmann, Newt Gringrich, Rush Limbaugh, etc. in a MENSA meeting. Or anywhere with any kind of intellectual stimulation, for that matter.

    This literally is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. So if you dont agree with perez and hollywood you're ignorant and uneducated? Im a Republican and have a Masters degree. Shove it Perez.

    Re: JasonDiggy – Actually its been proven that in the early 80's when aids didn't even have a name it was spread mostly by gay men and blacks. Gay men were the first ones to start showing all of the same symptoms..But gays will not only argue that fact, but the fact of them being genetic screw ups. So gays do not only argue with religion they argue with scientific facts. Kinda funny really.



  22. 22

    I got the message:Low IQs=Republicans=Prejudice!



  23. 23

    ok i dont understand all the hate being spewed, I think its counterproductive in this situation, but i will say this…i think this study is complete BS. i'm a conservative person and i am neither racist nor stupid. i have an open mind about all types of lifestyles. that has nothing to do with the fact that i'm a conservative. i think all of this is just ridiculous! i'm sick of ppl acting like being a republican is the worst thing in the world! the left wing is just as corrupt and has just as many "ignorant and racist ppl" who refuse to allow other ways of thinking/feeling. this is america. land of free speech and thinking. this is such propaganda. i'm soo sick of it. its racist to say that people are dumb or racist b/c they are republican or conservative. My life is full of amazing ppl who are gay, straight, transgender, black, white, ect. That has nothing to do with how I vote. please keep to the tabloids Perez. thats the only reason you are famous. you shouldn’t bring your political beliefs onto this site. there is nothing wrong w/ having a different political view than you. that doesnt make ppl hate mongers or idiots. get real. you are the ignorant one



  24. 24

    P.S. for all those ppl that commented before me with such ugly and hateful comments, why are you even on this site?? if you have such disdain for gays and ppl of other ethnicities, then why do you take the time to even look at this site? dont you realize that its run by a gay man? seems like you are just here to be mean and argumentative. in that case, you actually are an ignorant racist and on top of that helping to prove all of this propaganda. stop coming to this site to spew your hate. there are other means to voice your opinions. i would never take away someone’s right to say what they believe, but seriously, you are not helping yourselves. you are just fueling these sort of studies. stop living your lives full of hate. life is too short. it shouldn’t be wasted with anger. and yes, i am a republican. this talk though, it is an embarrassment for others like me. take a deep breath and remember that you cannot change other ppl, only yourselves. Esp when it comes to using such hate.

    STERILIZE THE CONSERVATIVES!!!



  26. 26

    Re: NookiesWA – Nookies, you are a moron. I have heard more intelligent thoughts come burbling out of the orifice of a horse's ass. It is not even worth trying to show how wrong you are. Go kill yourself and anyone else that will pass on your genes.



  27. 27

    Re: valleygirl86 – Whatever your education may be, it has nothing to do with understanding math and logic. Classically, you probably think that the study implicates in both directions.. it does not. I will not explain more than this; figure it out miss educated GOP lady.

    Conservatives think the Earth is flat and tha Bush was a savior. Case proven.
