"Sadists, however, have found enjoyment in it."

So when you see someone excited to go out showing off their new covid mask, and ready to pounce on anyone who says wearing a mask while doing their highly physical job is dangerous to their health, you've found a sadist. Anyone who thinks this whole thing is cute, that's been a sadist this whole time.

But the study — like all research — includes some limitations.

“The participants in this study, while from around the country and representing a variety of ages, employment statuses, etc., found time to complete a survey in the middle of a global pandemic. These individuals may be doing a bit better than others if they had the time and inclination to reflect for us.”

Science by survey.

What are the odds that the study's findings were in alignment, with the interests of those who provided the grant funding.

The researchers also found that individuals with high levels of narcissism and psychopathy had lower odds of engaging in cleaning behaviors. But the opposite was true for sadism.

Sadists love the hands sanitizer.
Purell has the info there were looking for.

It's a bit weird they think people have less free time during lock down.

However self selected surveys are always questionable. Especially when looking at personality types when it's very likely certainly personality types like filling in surveys and having their views heard much more than then others.

I agree 100%.

A questionnaire identifying the impact of PsyOp-19 on narcissists, Machiavellians, and sadists?

I doubt they've completed a GR&R (by attribute) on the reliability of these social "science" tests.
