Science says liberals, not conservatives, are psychotic

Turns out liberals are the real authoritarians.

A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong.

The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.

“The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was exactly reversed,” the journal said in the startling correction.

The problem with that easy analysis is many conservatives are also not healthy in how they think and act. There's plenty of terrible stuff in the hearts of many conservatives as well. Both sides are a range of society. But I think some generalizations might be made that are accurate. The question would be, how do you define conservative?
