Denmark Migrants

It is now commonplace to denounce any observed associations between groups and behaviours as being “stereotypes” with the strong implication that these preliminary impressions are dreadfully wrong, and malevolently so. However, these first impressions should be evaluated against objective measures, in which case they can be shown to over or under estimates of the association in question, or simply completely unrelated. I had given a preliminary account of this work here:

Here is the updated paper, in clear crisp video, from the London Conference, presented by Julius Daugbjerg Bjerrekær

  3. Oops, globalitarians/internationalists*

    Stereotypes and caricatures are not the same thing.

  4. Thesis, antithesis, synthesis.

    Once our stereotypes were too mean, now they have overreacted and they are too kind, hopefully in the near future they should move back to a less steotypical view and see both sides.

    But we are talking about kindness versus meanness, let the general uneducated population error on the side of kindness. Science has no preference for either stereotype. The study of human intelligence is utterly fascinating to just a few of us and we don’t care about kind versus mean stereotypes.

    Let the talking heads continue to inform the general public out there in TV land that we were all born equal even though the evidence says otherwise. Let them get away with lying. Why? Because it’s kind. It is a viewpoint that serious students of human intelligence find ignorant but what are you going to do. Let science move forward, hopefully increasingly oblivious to crap sold to the masses, but let the propaganda that we are all equal remain.

    Kindness for the masses.
    Truth for the scientifically inclined.
