We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Longstanding claims that stereotypes are inaccurate, in the face of an almost complete absence of data demonstrating inaccuracy. Indeed, stereotype accuracy is one of the largest and most widely replicated effects in social psychology. One might think that a field plagued by a “replication crisis,” by tiny effect sizes, and by all sorts of threats to some of its most cherished conclusions would be singing to the world about one of the few large, robust, replicable findings in its vast literature. But if one keeps in mind the many ways in which political agendas influence and distort the field, one might not be surprised that many psychologists try to hush up, dismiss, or ignore such politically uncomfortable findings.

I find it interesting that with all the psychologists (and sociologists and criminologists) turned out by the Universities, we as a society are not better adjusted and sane. You would think that public policy could better predict outcomes. That the justice system would result in less recidivism. That race relations would be improving.
