    I don't understand why these people think it's plausible that pelvic symptoms would be related to being neurotic or whatever. Unless the idea is that you're so tightly puckered all the time that it starts to hurt?

    The conclusion has nothing to do with, frankly, anything else. If anything it concludes the exact opposite of what the data suggests. What the hell is extraversion even doing there? Decades later and this psychosocial crap is still at the stage of "maybe there could be something there" while doing the same thing over and over again and never actually finding anything. Research where the conclusion is always more research is needed. What's even the point here?

    Stop wasting resources on dumb things like that. And bring back the damn scientific method. This rhetoric-based garbage is a complete waste.
