The Whiners

The Journal of Research Into Personality found that whiny kids are more likely to become conservative. This is the party in power that whines about liberals not allowing them to invade Iraq and cut taxes.

Remember the whiny, insecure kid in nursery school, the one who always thought everyone was out to get him, and was always running to the teacher with complaints? Chances are he grew up to be a conservative.

At least, he did if he was one of 95 kids from the Berkeley area that social scientists have been tracking for the last 20 years. The confident, resilient, self-reliant kids mostly grew up to be liberals.

Block has also done an interesting study on drug abuse.

Hat tip to Lindsey.
