Which group is more likely to "Like" these things on Facebook: The Godfather, Mozart, Thunderstorms, The Colbert Report, Morgan Freeman's Voice, Lord of the Rings, Science, Curly Fries, The Daily Show, To Kill a Mockingbird?

Horray Independents -- sorry, everyone else! The answer is "High IQ!"

How would Facebook know the IQs of its users?

The study wasn't done by Facebook. It was done with the permission of about 52,000 people who did a battery of other tests in conjunction with going about their business on Facebook.

High iq and liberal are the same thing

For a texan, you sure are smart. You've probably got that several times already.

Not necessarily, by a longshot!

Hear this all the time from Liberals, just how much smarter they are. You know we believe in Science! Even if the datas wrong or been altered we believe!

This is actually from a real study on Facebook Likes. One of the answers is the result as discovered in the study. The other is just made up. They're not supposed to be synonymous. This is not a poll where smart-ass liberals win regardless of choice.

Well of course Liberals will say they are more intelligent then anyone. And of course Facebook is a trusted and valued polling app.

Axl; I don't believe in supporting science that's been based on lies and misconceptions.

Maj.; does this study say who did it? Who asked for it to be done? After looking at the other similar questions like this one it reminds me of one person, Rotavele we all know his bias and who he hates.

Cambridge University in the UK and Microsoft.

Duey, I can explain the significance of Cambridge if you need it.

There isn't much overlap in those two groups?

Actually studies have shown that people with advanced degrees are more likely to be liberal than conservative.

Ah, yes. The ivory towers of academia.

Do these same studies also show that liberals are more likely to have spoken the word "huzzah" in the last 12 months and are more versed than conservatives in conversational Klingon?

Axl: I think that has to do with how many college professors are liberal. Most schools have far higher liberal rates than conservatives. It's not hard to imagine a conservative feeling put out having to sit through a liberally biased class.
