We all exhibit these states of mind, though at some level it appears to be hard wired.

They are real, measurable differences.

How will they be using multi pronged marketing/PR to affect our behavior?

How will this knowledge be utilized?

Do you really think "they" haven't been manipulating all of us for decades already?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Giggle, giggle......There isn't enough room here to explain just how and how much "they" have done so.

This is just new stuff on the subject.

It's nonpartisan, non divisive, real, and everybody missed it.

Too busy bitching about something or other?

I hardly see how starring at shit(fecal matter) for longer spans of time means you're more alert to threats. Maybe it means they are accustom to negativity or things that are unpleasant to say the least, so there is no repulsion to look away.

Though, this post is not nonpartisan lol. It reinforces the divide on a psychological level. It is none the less an interesting article and I think fun facts for both sides.

I found it nonpartisan as it dealt with the strengths and weaknesses inherent to both "sides".

The question remains as to who will be utilizing this information and for what purpose.

It could easily be put to nefarious uses.

Well it is obvious why the trolls/shills/quislings/RINO's/DINO's/CorpoRATist's didn't comment.

They would like the post to die a silent death if possible.

AND YES - there has been a lot of trolls/shills/quislings/RINO's/DINO's/CorpoRATist's activity to slap down. Happens during OWS and all Occupy action days - like the DNC protest.

Nothing destroys a pointless argument quicker than the truth.........:)

Sorry did I destroy your purpose? I can at times be a bit slow on the uptake. {;-(

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Not all. I was referring to "troll" slapping....:)

Today's infection has been pretty off the wall, although I haven't been around much......Housework and all.

Well I think you can still get in a pretty good cardio work-out in troll slapping today. I think we will all be marathoners by the end of November.

[-] 2 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I think your doctor will disagree, but go ahead and have some fun........:)

The silly season is indeed, in full swing.

Or was that spin?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28246) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Spin? Ummm would that involve troll juggling?

[-] 1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

Yes, as long as it comes with patriotic bunting...........:)

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28246) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

LOL

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) from Fort Walton Beach, FL 1 year ago

I think the article is something we can all use, a laugh at ourselves.

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (28246) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

True true - a call back to reality as well.

It was very interesting. I especially found the fear factor bit illuminating. I have read a good bit of posts here about how things horrible, and not gonna get better, and that fear, defeatism, might indicate a more conservative persona.

Good post.

We're all normal and we want our freedom.

OK. Love ya too bro, but I was talking about the band from the 60s.

Good God, I'm getting old...........LOL

I don't think that album was ever put on CD.

Maybe if I heard it.
