    Low-Effort Thought Promotes Political Conservatism

    Of course, I only understand like maybe 6% of the abstract.

    :lol:

    I can't think about it. It's too hard.... therefore I am a conservative.

    You do realize that you've given deany a treasure-trove of something else he can cherry-pick to prove his abstacts/pre-conceived notions?

    This should be fun should he even attempt to wade through it. :D

    I am still chuckling at the "study."

    , said the authors.

    I wonder if that might mean that high effort thinking promotes liberalism?

    I doubt it. My hypothesis would be that it's only high-effort for the libs because they aren't used to actually thinking.

    I suggest that somebody engage in a "study" to validate that hypothesis.

    I am offering rderp the opportunity to use it to his best advantage.

    But I guarantee he will be able to make nothing more out of it than his usual fare of dull-witted talking pointlesses.

    TDM mouths off without even comprehending the article or the abstract.

    And in a flurry of mental inactivity, she cobbles together another baseless sentence, to no particular effect.
