"Maybe we’re on Mars because of the magnificent science that can be done there - the gates of the wonder world are opening in our time. Maybe we’re on Mars because we have to be, because there’s a deep nomadic impulse built into us by the evolutionary process, we come after all, from hunter gatherers, and for 99.9% of our tenure on Earth we’ve been wanderers. And, the next place to wander to, is Mars. But whatever the reason you’re on Mars is, I’m glad you’re there. And I wish I was with you.”
— Carl Sagan

What researchers discovered was surprising: Those who are described as ‘agreeable, conscientious personalities’ are more likely to follow orders and deliver electric shocks that they believe can harm innocent people, while ‘more contrarian, less agreeable personalities’ are more likely to refuse to hurt others.

The study also found that people holding left-wing political views were less willing to hurt others. One particular group held steady and refused destructive orders: ‘women who had previously participated in rebellious political activism such as strikes or occupying a factory.’

ahhh I’m so side eyeing myself right now. 

I prioritize kindness and see it as an incredibly worthy goal. I am the most agreeable a person can be (according to totally maybe bullshit personality test) and I like to think I’m not morally bankrupt. 

I’m not particularly obedient when things dont make sense, so I’ve got that going for me?

I also prioritize honest and being direct so maybe idk I’m not a sheeple (yells the sheeple)

I’m kinda tempted to see if Ade minds if I post the conversation this prompted, but suffice to say, agreeableness is not a monolith http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agreeableness
