    Default Doom: Are you antisocial?

    Then you are unlikely to wear a mask.

    Not wearing a mask is linked to antisocial traits, study finds | The Independent

    Scientists in Brazil have linked resistance to Covid-19 safety measures, such as wearing a mask, with antisocial personality traits.

    Their study was the first of its kind in Latin America and surveyed over 1,500 people aged 18-73.

    Using a questionnaire, the scientists sought to identify the participants’ affective resonance - their impulse to act on feelings stirred by another person - and asked a series of personality questions about how well certain statements represented their behaviour on a scale.

    The survey also asked about compliance with Covid-19 containment measures over time, such as mask wearing.

    When profiles were analysed, two were identified: an antisocial pattern profile who were resistant to Covid-19 safety measures and an empathy pattern profile who were compliant.

    The antisocial profile was linked to higher scores in the personality questions related to “callousness, deceitfulness, hostility, impulsivity, irresponsibility, manipulativeness, and risk-taking”, antisocial traits which, the study notes, “are typically present in people diagnosed with Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD)". This group also had lower scores in affective resonance.

    The empathy pattern profile showed higher scores in affective resonance and lower scores in the traits associated with ASPD.

    The team who conducted the study said they hoped the findings would help to persuade health officials to do more to educate people and influence their policies.

    "Through screenings that demonstrate an elevation in these [ASPD] traits, interventions can be carried out aiming at greater awareness and consequent compliance with containment measures”, the team explained.

    While worldwide protests have taken place surrounding mask wearing, their effectiveness continues to be proven in a growing number of studies.

    You do realise you can be anti-social and have friends (who are likely to be anti-social too). I get you was trying to play on words, but I was playing it straight and pointing out that you're a dull twunt and unlikely to have any friends.

    If that theory flies we can all presume that YOU have few if any friends, and even those you DO possess have long been in favour of you wearing a mask, dating back to well before the outbreak of COVID-19.

    No it's not! You have deoderants (masks smells) and antiperspirants (reduces sweating). Most products you'll find in the personal care aisle are a combination of the two.

    It's just misspelled, that's all.
