Lack Of Political Diversity Within Social Scientists Leads To Much Head Scratching (not)
[link to www.nytimes.com]

Discrimination is always high on the agenda at the Society for Personality and Social Psychology’s conference, where psychologists discuss their research on racial prejudice, homophobia, sexism, stereotype threat and unconscious bias against minorities.

Polling his audience at the San Antonio Convention Center, starting by asking how many considered themselves politically liberal. A sea of hands appeared, and Dr. Haidt estimated that liberals made up 80 percent of the 1,000 psychologists in the ballroom. When he asked for centrists and libertarians, he spotted fewer than three dozen hands. And then, when he asked for conservatives, he counted a grand total of three.

“This is a statistically impossible lack of diversity,” Dr. Haidt concluded"

Who would have guessed that?

It's exactly how I think about politics...those who want to learn how others think, or control their thoughts and decide whats best for them = libs

We can never shed our sins and regrets, only accumulate more, a burden that we grow and carry until our deaths. The best we can do is learn to live with ourselves, to accommodate our pasts

Doesn't being neurotic and a psychologist go hand in hand? Explains a lot.

They weed them out in college. Liberal professors discriminate against anyone who is not as stupid as they are.

Mainly because the education institutions teach to replicate and operate, and they threw the fundamentals out the window along with creative thought and critical analysis.


Music education would help and some art classes without dogma.
