Right-wingers tend to be less intelligent than left-wingers, and people with low childhood intelligence tend to grow up to have racist and anti-gay views, says a controversial new study.

Conservative politics work almost as a 'gateway' into prejudice against others, say the Canadian academics.

The paper analysed large UK studies which compared childhood intelligence with political views in adulthood across more than 15,000 people.

The authors claim that people with low intelligence gravitate towards right-wing views because they make them feel safe.

Re: Right-wingers are LESS intelligent than left wingers, says study
I'm going to put this out there for consideration: What is the definition of 'intelligence' as it pertains to this study?

It really does matter. I personally know intelligent, successful, left wing people who know jack shit about things I consider common knowledge. I.e. how to change a tire, the relationship of moving parts and how they interact with each other (mechanical process and theory), history as it pertains to modern day issues, how to fix (or jury-rig) things, why the sun will never go supernova, where to find the best deals on clothes and stuff, you get the gist.

That said, I also know folks who are right-wing who are dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to the intricacies of ballet, classical music, how to write a poem or even a simple instruction manual, the proper etiquette for dining out, how to clean a firearm properly (if you say WD-40 I will vomit through the internets tubes into your lap), why theocracy is a bad thing, yada yada yada.

You see, when you define intelligence as "book learnin'", you'll lose a percentage of the population, but if you define it as "commonly understood principles of existence" you just might find out that both 'wings' are about equal in relation to their lack/wealth of knowledge. Another point, you also have to gauge the knowledge in relation to the socio-economic group, the geographic region, and the dominant culture/sub-cultures that they were raised in and around.

Assumptions based on political ideology as to the intelligence of an individual is a fatal mistake. Never, ever, underestimate the skill set of someone based on superficial data.

The real reason behind the study, I'd wager, is that the whole left/right paradigm fallacy is really such an effective means of control, that for the State to not propagate and use it would be down right hazardous to its health.

Also, consider where the article came from, and who the authors were. There is an agenda being pushed here, and most of us can see it.

But what do I know, I'm just a 'regressive', malcontent, conspiracy theorist.

Re: Right-wingers are LESS intelligent than left wingers, says study
In support of OPs article, here is a study I made many years ago based upon the 2004 election, the start of Bush's 2nd term. Perhaps it might be interesting for you to ponder on why no one publicly put forward such information, as it was very easy for me to gather and calculate:

10 most intellegent states - 8 Democrat, 2 Republican
10 least intelligent states - 8 Republican, 2 Democrat

Democrat state rankings - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 14, 18, 23, 24, 27, 30, 31, 35, 42, 43
Republican state rankings - 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 25, 26, 28, 29, 32, 33, 33, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50

D Average ranking - 17.6316
R Average ranking - 29.0323

Mathematical Conclusion: Democrat states are 65% smarter than Republican states.

2004 Rankings:

1.Massachusetts D
2.Connecticut D
3.Vermont D
4.New Jersey D
5.Wisconsin D
6.New York D

Re: Right-wingers are LESS intelligent than left wingers, says study
This is actually very simple. Left Wingers are part of a collective group think process. They excel at repeating what they have been told to say. They are educated in debating and proving their point though liberal talking points.

Right Wingers are individualists. They think for themselves, and weigh the opinions of others through critical though process.

Testing is always a structured format, where the answers are based upon what the collective group thinks is true. So when Right Wingers take these tests, they often come up with different answers.

So who is more intelligent, those who repeat what they have been taught, or those who process information and come to their own conclusions? By the way, racism does not exist, there are just people who do not view some things the same way as the collective, and are branded racists for their disobedience. Just another way to enforce group think.
