    Btw, "pop culture" isn't art.
    That's up for debate. The Beatles at one time were pop culture and scores of people consider the Beatles work "art" Not all pop culture has artistic merit, but some does.

    Not that many conservative scientists so.... ISTPs are a lot more likely to be libertarian or liberal than conservative. INTJs are more likely to be conservative. Basically the data driven type scientists tend to be more liberal, the theory driven type scientists tend to be more conservative. Not sure what to make of that at all.

    Well why didn't you just say that. "Frontal Lobe" vs. "Logical thought portions of the brain" . . . if I didn't know better, I'd think you were trying to be creative and artistic with your words. I mean really . . . what is easier to say; "Frontal Lobe" or "Logical thought portions of the brain"? Now, go finish your book.

    You're overlooking several factors, chief among them is environment. The academic boards, the ones who decide where grant money goes - likely to be liberal. It's life in the echo chamber. Not to mention you hedge your bets distinquishing libertarian from conservative.

    Though I have noticed that every physicist and/or mathemetician I've ever know is conservative (outside of universities).

    Funny, the more conservative posters were able to figure it out.

    That's not surprising, conservatives being happier doesn't surprise me one bit. However one activity may or may not mean anything in terms of overall happiness.

    Or they didn't catch it. (I can do that too) I mean seriously, "Logical thought portions of the brain". You wrote than and then said to yourself, "Yep, that's better than 'Frontal Lobe'". "Logical thought portions of the brain" "Logical thought portions of the brain"

    In these modern times.
