    Looks like just the backstop, everything else looks the same to me...

    An Overview of the Dunning-Kruger Effect
    I was listening to a podcast about bias in User Research with either Dunning or Kruger, I can’t remember which one it was. And he said that he is astounded with the number of people who misinterpreted the Dunning-Kruger effect.

    Not really pertinent to the thread but a fascinating listen none the less
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    It doesn't say that.

    It doesn't say Leavers are thick.


    It says Leavers are... stupid

    The psychometrics article was talking factually about what Brexiteers are like. It accords with my assessment of the few friends I have that voted Brexit: inclined to believe any old nonsense without questioning it, and more inclined to be reckless. Be clear: this personality trait pattern leads to above average success and above average happiness but unfortunately also leads to sub-optimal actual outcomes (as distinct from the perception such people have of the outcomes). Generally speaking my view is live-and-let-live but when their flawed decision-making leads to a super-massive cock-up like Brexit then the rest of us have to intervene and say "No, stop it".

    The Spectator article is just a sermon from the pulpit of the Brexit Church. You may like what is says or you may not. It's not however in any way factual.

    For what it's worth, I think the article is bollox. The Tories asked for a load of nonsense and then set off on an impossible, ridiculous track (courtesy of 17 million idiots) and the EU unsurprisingly said "They have zero chance of winning this game so we'll just sit back and quietly let them stew in their own juices"
