Study: Whiners Grow Up Conservative

It turns out that according to a study, conducted by a UC Berkeley Professor Jack Block, kids who were whiners and complainers in nursery school tend to grow up to be conservatives. He also claims that confident and self-reliant kids in nursery school tend to grow up to be liberal. The study tracked 95 kids from the Berkeley area for 20 years and his released findings have been reported by the Toronto Star. “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. The whiny kids tended to grow up conservative, and turned into rigid young adults who hewed closely to traditional gender roles and were uncomfortable with ambiguity. The confident kids turned out liberal and were still hanging loose, turning into bright, non-conforming adults with wide interests. The girls were still outgoing, but the young men tended to turn a little introspective.”

What I find hilarious is that if this is true that means given the reality we know today, conservatives stop whining and complaining when they grow up but liberals save their whining and complaining for adulthood. I think this study was designed to make people on the left feel better about themselves because when they reach adulthood their insecurities fester up and create the lefty-loons that we see today. This study has been widely discredited by people like Jeff Greenberg a professor of the University of Arizona who said, "I found it [the study] to be biased, shoddy work, poor science at best.” However, I think I’ll use the professor's argument because it means that Conservatives evolve from kids to live life in a mature adult fashion while Liberals devolve into whiners as they get older.


I also find it funny that the Toronto Star and the Berkeley professor would put this study out to take potshots at conservatives. But I think all it does is prove how conservatives act like kids at the proper age but liberals do the opposite by growing up to be crybabies. I suppose that’s why Liberals tend to use backward logic to argue points. I love it! All I see is liberals whine about this, protest about that and base their opinions on hatred. I know some people need little studies like this to make yourselves feel better about how unwanted they are. I know some are angry about how fun it is for us to make fun of you pot-smoking, hippie-looking, shower-disregarding, conspiracy-theory nutcases but come on. Enough is enough…stop your whining already.
