Americans Overestimate Social Class Mobility

In this research we examine estimates of American social class mobility—the ability to move up or down in education and income status. Across studies, overestimates of class mobility were large and particularly likely among younger participants and those higher in subjective social class—both measured (Studies 1–3) and manipulated (Study 4). Class mobility overestimates were independent of general estimation errors (Study 3) and persisted after accounting for knowledge of class mobility assessed in terms of educational attainment and self-ratings. Experiments revealed that mobility overestimates were shaped by exposure to information about the genetic determinants of social class—a faux science article suggesting genetic constraints to economic advancement increased accuracy in class mobility estimates (Study 2)—and motivated by needs to protect the self—heightening the self-relevance of class mobility increased overestimates (Study 3). Discussion focused on both the costs and benefits of overestimates of class mobility for individuals and society.

Rain and the Tyrants by Jules Supervielle

I stand and watch the rain
Falling in pools which make
Our grave old planet shine;
The clear rain falling, just the same
As that which fell in Homer's time
And that which dropped in Villon's day
Falling on mother and on child
As on the passive backs of sheep;
Rain saying all it has to say
Again and yet again, and yet
Without the power to make less hard
The wooden heads of tyrants or
To soften their stone hearts,
And powerless to make them feel
Amazement as they ought;
A drizzling rain which falls
Across all Europe's map,
Wrapping all men alive
In the same moist envelope;
Despite the soldiers loading arms,
Despite the newspapers' alarms,
Despite all this, all that,
A shower of drizzling rain
Making the flags hang wet.

Much thanks to Dr. Duncan Richter for mentioning my new article on poetry, hip-hop, and philosophy ✌
I'm happy to be cited by anyone, but this must be one of the cooler-sounding papers that has mentioned my work: Adam M. Croom's "The importance of poetry, hip-hop, and philosophy for an enlisted aviator in the USAF (2000-2004) flying in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi ...

Bullying often happens at a young age when boys and girls do not learn to handle anger or aggression properly. Boys and girls can be bullies.

Growing up can be stressful. Instead of play dates, you have blind dates. Instead of recess, you get a receding hairline. But, just because you're not a kid anymore doesn't mean you can't have a play like one. Steve Kuhl, a brilliant designer and CEO of Kuhl Design+Build, can create you a ...
