What do you think about this?

Psychologists at New York University say they’ve found the answer to why people with right wing political views are happier than left-leaning liberals (as previously indicated by survey research). In short, conservatives are less upset by inequality because they believe people generally get what they deserve in life.

As one of the commentators pointed out, “left” vs “right” is probably oversimplifying.  I haven’t looked into the whole study yet, so I don’t know how much I agree with the conclusions.  But… interesting.

  1. Aha…related to Annie Ha and Megan, huh? Thanks for dropping by the blog. I caught something you wrote about not understanding the queueing process…excellent…

  2. I’m going to game your blog commentary process as an example of social engineering (being the nerd security wonk). Expect another 200 or so comments in the next 10 to 20 days.

    Don’t worry, I’ll follow courtesy rules of commentary (actually read the post, find something interesting to say, etc.)
