Posted by te2ataria on December 10, 2015
Kiwi ignorance despite, or because of dumbing down?
The Perils of Perception survey shows New Zealand is the most ignorant developed nation, and world’s fifth most ignorant country overall. [Thanks to the establishment and its exemplary MSM!!]
Overall, the most ignorant country was found to be Mexico, followed by India and Brazil in second and third place respectively, according to the survey result.
Perils of Perception 2015: Perceptions are not reality
“Across all 33 countries in the study, each population gets a lot wrong. We are often most incorrect on factors that are widely discussed in the media or highlighted as challenges facing societies, such as the proportion of young adults still living at home, immigration and wealth inequality. We know from previous studies that this is partly because we over-estimate what we worry about – as well as worrying about the issues we think are widespread,” said Bobby Duffy, Managing Director of Ipsos MORI Social Research Institute.
“There are multiple reasons for these errors—from our struggle with simple maths and proportions, to media coverage of issues, to social psychology explanations of our mental shortcuts or biases.”
Ipsos intertwined 25,556 people online between October 1 – October 16 this year to for the survey. https://www.ipsos-mori.com/_assets/sri/perils/slides/
