Research Into Personality

I thought this snippet from The Blotter this morning was exceptionally amusing:
A study from the Journal of Research Into Personality by Jack and Jeanne Block tracked 100 kids from their 1960s nursery school days to the present and found the whiny kids tended to grow up conservative, and turned into rigid young adults, while the confident kids turned out liberal and were still hanging loose, turning into bright, non-conforming adults with wide interests.

Huh...who'da thunk, "insecure kids look for the reassurance provided by tradition and authority, and find it in conservative politics".
