Farage tantrum- Brexiteers R thick science claim

Postby Guest » Mon Mar 11, 2019 8:11 pm

Nigel Farage has branded scientists “divisive and arrogant” over claims Brexit voters are not as bright as Remainers.

Leavers tended to be worse with numbers, more impulsive and prone to accepting the unsupported claims of authoritarian figures.

Researchers at the University of Missouri gave 11,225 volunteers psychological tests before the 2016 referendum and asked how they would vote.

“Compared with remain voters, leave voters displayed significantly lower levels of numeracy and appeared more reliant on impulsive thinking,” said the researchers.

Social scientists are becoming increasingly interested in the relationship between personality and voting.

“Participants expressing an intent to vote to leave reported significantly higher levels of authoritarianism and conscientiousness than those voting to remain,” researchers said in the paper, submitted to the Public Library of Science journal.
