Now, this is a touchy subject. We get that. And though common sense makes a correlation between people who 'live' less, experience less or even pay attention less to 'dumbness', questions remain to provoke more inquiry.

Well, we found our answer, sorta. According to Brock University in Ontario, people who scored lower on an I.Q. test during childhood are more likely to develop prejudices and socially conservative politics as an adult. 

The Intelligence Quotient test may accurately measure certain abilities, but many psychologists aren't convinced it's the best way to gauge a person's complete intelligence.

Although, the nebulous concepts focus some as the thesis becomes clear. That is, "People of low intelligence gravitate toward socially conservative ideologies, which stress resistance to change and, in turn, prejudice," said Dr. Gordon Hodson, the lead author of the study. 

Is this wrong? Right? What do ya think?
