Less conscientiousness is bad. Conscientiousness is associated with impulsiveness control and steady work towards long-term goals. Discipline.

Maybe 50/50 was too even a split. The impulse control and responsibility parts are good and I'm amazed those can sink any lower. But I think we've reached the point when "adherence to norms and rules" could go either way. NPCs who diligently report wrongthink might score high on conscientiousness.

There is a significant correlation between levels of consciensiousness and time preference. People who score low in consciensiousness tend to have high time preference, which means they're much more concerned with their immediate needs and desires and don't think long-term. High time preference makes people much more likely to vote for gibs over long-term stability. Among other things.

I don't know, man. Babylon doesn't have truth to their side, so instead they condition emotional responses. I don't think that correlates with conscientiousness.

Yeah, decreased agreeableness is fine but mixed with less conscientiousness just means future jackboots.

decreased agreeableness and conscientiousness

This is good since those are 2 of the traits which in excess enables the spread of Marxism for Women.

Conscientiousness is a net positive. Agreeableness has an ideal window that starts just above 'pick a fight with the sky, didn't like its shade of blue' and ends well before it reaches any twitter hashtag level.

I've missed out on my twenties. First, through agoraphobia then being stuck inside after getting my shit together.

Actually unironically same.

Fuck it, personally I’ve decided to just enjoy this shit now, no matter that I might be approaching 30, because why not?

You only live once. Bugger the expectation that you should do things in your early 20s and have it all over with by now. They fucked us all over for 2.5 years. Why shouldn’t we get to make up for that now??

At least, that’s my attitude.

But I’m coming off an entirely fucked up adolescence where I didn’t get to enjoy very much of that (abusive, controlling parents; shitty personal life), so… YMMV.

This is the gift that keeps on giving.

Not only was it a waste of time, but it was done because a group of demons inhabiting human flesh wanted more money based on human suffering.

They knew the pandemic wasn't as bad as they said it was. They intentionally put the most vulnerable at risk, at further risk, by putting covid patients in nursing homes.

We all had to change our lives because we were all fed the same lies. Two weeks to stop the spread. 2 years and several shutdown later, it hasn't gotten any better.

People will be feeling the effects of this decades from now. Even those who didn't get the shots still might get fucked over.

There isn't a layer of hell deep enough, or excruciating enough for all eternity to put the people that orchestrated this in.

disrupted maturity, as exhibited by increased neuroticism and decreased agreeableness and conscientiousness

Sounds like social media, not the pandemic itself.

Now do a study on how the plandemic effected that demographic’s trust in government and authority figures in general.

Typical behavior given circumstances. This is nothing to be alarmed about.
