Default timely research

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart...-bs-180969062/


According to John V. Petrocelli of Wake Forest University, the author of a new paper in The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, the technical definition of bullshitting is “a pervasive social behavior involving communication with little to no concern for evidence and/or established semantic, logical, systemic, or empirical knowledge.” Bullshitting is not lying per se—Petrocelli says a liar is someone who is actually concerned with the truth and is actively trying to divert their audience from the truth. Bullshitters, on the other hand, don’t really care if what they are saying is true or not, they’re just putting their opinion out there. As philosopher Harry Frankfurt wrote in his 2005 treatise On ********, “It is impossible for someone to lie unless he thinks he knows the truth. Producing ******** requires no such conviction.”

Dims dont BS...... they already know the truth, then attempt to convey information stating the opposite. They lie...

Edit.... sorry, correction, the ones(lead persons) in the know lie, the rest just follow along like good sheeple.

Thanks for the thought provoking link, love the info about the glandular differences between humans that are actually recognizable, measurable, proven to make a stark difference in human behavior.
The under development or overdevelopment of the Anterior cingulate cortex is the reason we have either diplomats or criminals and or everything between, fascinating.

I find the most interesting paragraph to be the last....

Pennycook and his co-authors found that those people most susceptible to BS were less analytic, less intelligent, higher in religious belief and more prone to “ontological confusion,” like believing the mind can control the physical world via ESP. Also, we heard the other day that if you slept on the left side of the bed as a child you’d grow up to be more gullible, so that probably has something to do with it as well.



Now, looking at this confusing post after your post, I assume Dims to be Democrats, but then reality or truth just stops, is the poster saying that Democrats are Liars, about what?

The article points out that BS’ers are attempting to warp reality, and it points out everyone has their own gauge of “truth, reality”.
The article also points out that everyone talks to their audience(the person or people involved), and it points out, that that person speaking varies their “truth” upon their respect for that audience at that time, so basically, a BS’er has no respect for the person or audience they are talking to, or the entire planet, while a liar is simply manipulating that person or audience to do what they require.

So BS’ers are floating in crazy and liars are deceiving with an intent

Well, as the post below points out ever so unintentionally benignly, at least Democrats aren’t BS’ers.

What is funny about the NK thing is, all of Un's predecessors had less to work with in the way of threatening weapons. Kim Jong Un had the ULTIMATE weapon, ran into Trump, and did not get jack sh*t. That is a really telling fact.
