This study claims academe is not representative of the conservatives in the upper 5% of IQ.
The left-liberal skew of British academia cannot be primarily explained by intelligence. The distribution of party support within the top 5% of IQ is relatively similar to the distribution of party support within the general population.
Do you see the authors mistake? He is using the top 5% of IQ– universities select the upper 1-2% in IQ. So if the author redoes the study, I imagine he will find academic proportions true to the upper 1-2% being nearly purely liberal. If it was a snake it would have bit you.
I learned this from Haier’s wondrous book.
I cant wait to learn more.
