Surprise: Easily Offended People Less Productive, Bad Employees

The hell you say!

Study Reveals That Easily Offended People Are Less Productive, Bad Employees

A study conducted by a Professor at San Diego State University has discovered that people who are easily offended make terrible employees because they never get anything done.

The study, conducted by Dr. Jeremy Berneth (WT – actually, Bernerth), involved asking almost 400 employees, aged 25.9 on average, across seven US colleges about different events that have recently gotten “substantial media attention”.

The study notes that the events consisted of “17 items developed to assess the proclivity to be offended, eight moral outrage items, 11 microagression items and nine political correctness items.”

It noted that some people have a high “proclivity to be offended” (PTBO), which the study describes as “a state-like tendency to be sensitive to customarily innocuous societal events and traditions,” for example “playing of the United States’ National Anthem.”

Those with a high PTBO have a “tendency to view an array of events and/or traditions as offensive.”

They also “are likely to feel that social events or traditions to which they take offense also violate moral or equitable standards,” the study notes.

Basically, they’re easily triggered by anything.

Now, you may be wondering if this is satire. I can’t find anything that says it is. Summit News doesn’t seem to do satire like the Onion or Babylon Bee. Further, there is an actual Jeremy Berneth at San Diego State. Further, the above story (which has much more, make sure to read it) has an embed of said study via SCRIBD. It’s not a study that someone just made up to be satire, as it’s 10 pages.

The study also notes that the easily offended are less concerned with helping others, despite constantly engaging in virtual signalling to suggest that is their primary goal.

Shocking, eh?

It is funny, though, and just what you expect. And will surely make the easily Offended Offended.

    I have always been amused by “studies” that reinforce things we already knew through observation, exposure or experience. Similarly, I have always found leftists who fail to observe these things ignorant, emotional and child-like. But dangerous to The Republic nonetheless. I suppose that’s why they are so easily infected by “the Big Lie” and also why they project so much of their own hate, jealousy and racism on others. Which is why the old saying “You can’t reason people out of a position they didn’t reason themselves into” works so well when dealing with leftists.

      Never, ever forget, with conservatives it’s ALWAYS projection.

      Here’s a method known as “mirroring”, which of course I’m seriously abusing.

      We’ve “observed” that rightists are filled with hate, jealousy, low IQ, homophobia and racism, and certainly don’t need a study to support our observation, exposure or experience.

      Yet….Hodson and Busseri (2012) found in a correlational study that lower intelligence in childhood is predictive of greater racism in adulthood, with this effect being mediated (partially explained) through conservative ideology. They also found poor abstract reasoning skills were related to homophobic attitudes, mediated through authoritarianism and low levels of intergroup contact.

      Connies consider reason, thoughtfulness, kindness, consideration, cooperation, education, insight and empathy to be “gay” or feminine or ignorant, emotional or childlike.

      I don’t consider Kye to be a bad person (unlike the Wiz and drowningpup), but he’s clearly hurting and lashing out.

          Waah!! Poor whiny titty baby. We’re hateful throwing Kye’s hateful words back in his face. Waah!!

          Never forget, with connies it’s always projection.

          Even little Rod’s perversions.

          • formwiz says:

            I take it Rod is your name on the Dark Web.

            And projection is your thing. I’m waiting for the first black female President, Republican, of course, and all the nasty things Jeffery will say about her.

            Say all you want about Kye. He actually served, in Vietnam, for God’s sake, while you ewent around poking things He can take it.

            You OTOH seem to have a problem dealing with the hatred you feel for all those Americans who don’t see things your way and will once again elect Donald Trump as President.

            Waah!! Poor whiny titty baby. Your impotence is screaming out every time you use language like that. You can’t stand knowing you’re going to lose and hate all the people who see through you.

            Again.

        “And we certainly don’t need a study to support our observation of hate, jealousy, low IQ. homophobia and racism”. Translated-just like his global warming claims, there’s no proof of any of that. But that’s true-you don’t need a study because you’d never find such a study.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          J,

          Hodson and Busseri (2012) was the citation. You can look it up. There are many more.

          Hodson and Busseri (2012) found in a correlational study that lower intelligence in childhood is predictive of greater racism in adulthood, with this effect being mediated (partially explained) through conservative ideology. They also found poor abstract reasoning skills were related to homophobic attitudes, mediated through authoritarianism and low levels of intergroup contact.

          According to this study low IQ early in life was predictive of social conservative ideology (as related to homophobia and racism).

          Connies that comment here are triggered daily, i.e., easily offended.

          • Jl says:

            Yes, J-correlational study. Which is not a causation study. Correlation doesn’t equal causation. So again, no proof

          • Jl says:

            And we have the very scientific term of “partially explained”. 10% of the explanation? 5%? 30%? Translated:we’re just guessing..

      • formwiz says:

        Actually, we haven’t Study after study has shown Conservatives to be more happy, well-adjusted people that those hateful Lefties who project everything they say they hate in other people back onto themselves.

        You might want to consider finding a better source than Hodson and Busseri.

        They sound like a pair of psychoneurotic paranoids.

        Much like yourself.
