4 year old sociopaths

Postby Lance Kennedy » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:52 pm

Reference, New Scientist, 16 June 2018, page 15

Researchers working with 4 year olds asked them to place pictures of a wide range of people and things into one of three circles. Inner circle, most important. Middle, less so, and outer circle not at all important.

Mother and friend pictures went into the inner circle, along with dogs, monkeys and roses. Sick people and people from other ethnicities went into the outer circle. Teachers and police into the middle.

Does this mean we are all sociopaths when young ? How many of us never grow up ?

I can't imagine trying to work with year old sociopaths, never mind 4 of them at once.

Seems like a perfect correlation to the amount of time spent with each group.

Hmmmmm, velcro baby. The tape isn't tensioned anywhere, it's not bearing a load. Probably shot with the proto-human lying on a horizontal surface, then 'shopped.

I think you nailed it. They all were raised by monkeys.
