How do you react to stupidity? Do you get sad? Angry? Disgusted? Humorous? Giddy? Because g is generally interchangeable with IQ, we can use low intelligence as a stand-in for weakness. So your reaction to stupidity generally signals whether you’re nurturing, predatory, etc. Reference:
There are three possible reactions to in-group weakness: sadness, anger, fear, and disgust. Sadness comes from the perception that a person’s weakness decreases group strength, and the belief that you’re powerless to change this (feeling “smaller” than the problem). Anger comes from the same perception, and the belief that you (being “bigger” than the problem) ought to modify their behavior with positive punishment. (If you don’t know how to fix the problem though, this desire to fix it will result in frustration = anger * sadness.) Disgust is the same perception and the belief that such weakness is an existential threat, resulting in emotional out-grouping (reduction of the problem’s size via distance) and an attitude demanding “distance or fire”. Fear obviously indicates a feeling that someone else’s weakness will put you in danger.
If stupidity makes you happy, this means you regard the weak person as out-group competition, so that their downfall is your success. Righteous fury is the predatory desire to profit by punishing competition. Contempt indicates a desire to cull the in-group via out-grouping. Heartbreak (“disappointment” would have been a better word) indicates a failure to correctly anticipate stupidity, combined with feelings of powerlessness. Outrage (characteristic of SJWs) is the same, except coupled with the desire to punish instead of powerlessness. This makes an amount of sense, because the “surprise” comes from a failure to be moral within their pseudo-religious framework, ergo “stupid”. I think the most insidious emotional reaction is horror, which is the recognition that Idiocracy is real life. I suspect that part of the social dysfunction that afflicts many extraordinarily smart people is the constant feeling that they’re living in a horror movie.
So to summarize some of this free association:
Fear <- Perception that stupidity will cause danger
Sadness <- Perception of stupidity and personal powerlessness
Anger <- Perception of stupidity and personal responsibility
Disgust <- Perception of stupidity as insidious, existential danger
Happiness <- Perception of weakness as opportunity
(Surprise <- Failure to correctly anticipate behavior, as usual)
(Worship <- Doesn't occur, unless weakness is redefined as strength as in "diversity is our strength")
