Remember that study about political affiliation and metal health?


You know ... the one that people were using to show that conservatives were more linked to psychotic traits while liberals had more socially desirable traits?

Well ... the researchers just released an erratum ... ooops ... they had it backwards ....

Quote:
As one of the notices specifies, now it appears that liberal political beliefs are linked with psychoticism. That paper also swapped ideologies when reporting on people higher in neuroticism and social desirability (falsely claiming that you have socially desirable qualities); the original paper said those traits are linked with liberal beliefs, but they are more common among people with conservative values.

So liberals aren't right in the head? Who could have possibly guessed?
