Pat yourselves on the back by the way if you're not a frothing mouth racist because, shock horror, you're not a simpleton like they are. I wonder what the study would have found if it had asked 'do you agree that the rich should be taxed in order to pay for the medical expenses of those who cannot afford them'? I wonder if they'll roll with the headlines 'Griffin hosts tea party for the Institute of Black Charities' or 'Ian Huntley; misunderstood or just a lovable rogue? Charlie Brooker wrote a piece reflecting this on the Guardian too which is hilarious. From reading that article it would seem that people with lower intelligence are more prone to authoritarianism and prejudice towards others, something the left wing can't claim to have not been involved in prolifically through the last century.I was pretty sure they didn't like it, because once you accept that it is a valid measurement you open a can of worms...for instance IQ differences between genders and races? From reading that article it would seem that people with lower intelligence are more prone to authoritarianism and prejudice towards others, Either that, or "lower tested intelligence" goes along with authoritarianism and prejudice toward others due to some "other factor".... But I will go regardless and get tickets at face value one way or another.

Fwiw, I'd guess that very emotionally reactive people have those traits, and could test lower in IQ due to emotions slowing down and complicating their thinking...
