When someone as open-minded as Jonathan Haidt implies that an array of evidence shows that conservatives are consistently more simplistic than liberals even in an article largely devoted to exploring potential qualifiers to the effect it suggests that the idea has achieved nearly axiomatic status in the minds of psychologists.
Picking Three â€˜Hymnsâ€™
One Sunday a pastor told his congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering plate.
He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns.
After the offering plates were passed, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in the offering.
He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his congregation and said heâ€™d like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate.
And there sat our Rosie all the way in the back. She shyly raised her hand.
The pastor asked her to come to the front.
Slowly she made her way to the pastor.
He told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much and in thanksgiving asked her to pick out three hymns.
Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, pointed to the three most handsome men in the building and said â€¦
â€œIâ€™ll take him and him and him!â€
