University Study Shows They Are More Well-Grounded Than Others

First thing, I want to say, why does World Net Daily pay Gina Loudon to write articles like this while I post blog bits for free in my spare time when not busting my ass at jobs I hate?
Oh, yeah, that’s right. ...Because I don’t LOOK like Gina Loudon.
Alright, ‘Sex Appeal Rant’ off-my-chest now, let’s move on to the Main Event. This time I’m gonna keep it short ‘n’ sweet. Yeah, that’s right – YOU, with the skeptical look on yer mug! – you heard me right! I’m gonna keep it “short ‘n’ sweet”. Why? Because I’m working graveyard shifts now to make poor loose ends meet, and as soon as I finish this rye-based beer, I’m gonna get my busted ass to bed! (Beer? Hey, it may be “Breakfast Time” to you, but it’s
late night cereal to
me! “The Breakfast Of Champions” to me!)
Back on topic...
The other day, I came across a surprising article posted on World Net Daily. Well, it might be “surprising” to some of you, but it certainly wasn’t to me. Even without the psychological studies, I had already figured out many years ago that those who entertain the possibility of conspiracies when formulating their government/world views are brighter’n those who don’t. Why? Lots of reasons. Here are a few of them:
1: Research into World and American History proves that “Conspiracy” is the rule and NOT the exception. (Wasn’t the founding of our own country a conspiracy against the King of Eeekland?)
2: People who out-of-hand deny the possibility of major conspiracies secretly fear having to face the fact that they are not in control of their own lives because the world is being ruled by evil geniuses who are more devious and more powerful than they are.
3: After many decades of dogmatically holding to a particular worldview or political paradigm, for a person to admit that they were not just wrong but very, Very, VERY wrong about the way the world works, is simply too injurious to the individual’s ego. It is easier to laugh and poke fun at the people who have discovered the truth than it is to accept that truth and, with it, acknowledge one’s limited intelligence and powers of perception.
[ADDED BONUS: I have beat hell out of everyone who ever challenged my ‘New World Order’ conspiracy viewpoint. That should count for sumpin’, eh?]
I never needed any psychiatrist / psychologist to teach and verify for me the above three points. They were just “self-evident”.
Of course, I’m not saying that all conspiracies were “created equal”. A person needs to be aware that in their studies they will frequently encounter misinformation and disinformation (disinformation = deliberate misinformation promulgated by powerful people, and governments run by powerful people). However, after about 20 years of serious study (as I have under my own belt), it’s safe to say that a person acquires an almost “Sixth Sense” regarding that
shit stuffs and can
smell “Disinformation” almost immediately, even through their eyes and ears.
Below are some paragraphs excerpted from the aforementioned article:
Two recent studies published in American Behavioral Scientist seem to support evidence that the brains of “conspiricists” work differently than the brains of conventional thinkers.
Psychologist Laurie Manwell of the University of Guelph said that conventional thinkers are unable to process information that conflicts with their pre-existing belief and then integrate it into their hypotheses of possible outcomes.
University of Buffalo professor Steven Hoffman agrees.
He says conventional thinkers and those who reject possibilities labeled as conspiracy are simply prey to “confirmation bias,” similar to Festinger’s cognitive dissonance. They actively seek out only information that confirms their prior conventional beliefs.
The label of “conspiracy theorist,” according to Hoffman, aids in an irrational mechanism of labeling to avoid having to integrate contrary information that might cause mental or emotional tension for the weaker mind. That would explain the anger and hostility at those who present other theories that don’t integrate well.
On the WND website, numerous readers posted comments below the article excerpted above. Here are a few of my favorites:
CONSPIRACY THEORIST is a THINKING person who has the ability to add 2+2 and come up with 4 as an answer, while those that laugh at them fully depend on the media to do their addition ....FOR THEM!!!!!
That explains why no talk show will even discuss the BIRTH CERTIFICATE.
Well boy howdy! Bless the researchers’ little hearts! Wasn't it greasy Dick Nixon and his cohort Kissinger who COVERTLY sucked up to mass murdering communist dictator Mao to open the door of commerce with China (the result being the loss of tens of millions of American's jobs)? What a grandiose funeral the bankers, corporations and New World Order operatives gave greasy Dick while an ignorant majority of our citizens gushed and grieved.
Wasn't it Slick Willy who proposed management authority for our Port of Long Beach to the Chinese?
Wasn't it G.W. 'Shrub' Bush who attempted to turn operational management of our East Coast seaports over to his Arab pals Dubai Ports World - as payback for a screw job he gave them in turning his promise of (their) off-shore oil into dry holes?
How about the blatant piracy and exploitation perpetrated upon Third-World peoples by the American 'corporatocracy' - which includes the above plus other presidents, numerous government 'officials', bankers and corporations? The list goes on practically forever! These are only a very few of the tactics put into play by traitors from within.
Yup, I'm a crazy old uncle. I've been after my bunch (among others) for at least twenty years with the truth. They're beginning to listen. I've hopes they will soon manage to stand and become pro-active patriots. They won't have long to get it done! With all the evidence we have seen and gathered about the elitist, global attack on our nation (they) have the temerity to call we patriots conspirators! I have friends from Kenya who know so much more about our nation and the truth, it is, well, ...words just don't suffice!
