What Would We Do Without Research?

What's the opposite of diversity?

(As per Kate...)


"Psychologists Yoel Inbar and Joris Lammers, based at Tilburg University in the Netherlands, surveyed a roughly representative sample of academics and scholars in social psychology and found that “In decisions ranging from paper reviews to hiring, many social and personality psychologists admit that they would discriminate against openly conservative colleagues.”

"This finding surprised the researchers."

[Ed note: OH COME ON!]

"The survey questions “were so blatant that I thought we’d get a much lower rate of agreement,” Mr. Inbar said."

Usually you have to be pretty tricky to get people to say they’d discriminate against minorities.”
