I believe I have the psychology of Jews basically cracked (i.e. it’s Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus in Gladiator), but in the meantime the turtle brain is becoming very interested in the Gypsies for comparison and contrast. Jews are basically Gypsies plus Judaism and a thousand years of intentionally breeding lawyers, which has had a lot of side effects like massively increasing average general factor of personality.
A quick search for “Gypsies study” reveals a lot of pozz and a couple of studies that look interesting. For example:
Data provided by the social sciences as well as genetic research suggest that the 8-10 million Roma (Gypsies) who live in Europe today are best described as a conglomerate of genetically isolated founder populations. The relationship between the traditional social structure observed by the Roma, where the Group is the primary unit, and the boundaries, demographic history and biological relatedness of the diverse founder populations appears complex and has not been addressed by population genetic studies.
Although far from systematic, the published information indicates that medical genetics has an important role to play in improving the health of this underprivileged and forgotten people of Europe. Reported carrier rates for some Mendelian disorders are in the range of 5 -15%, sufficient to justify newborn screening and early treatment, or community-based education and carrier testing programs for disorders where no therapy is currently available. To be most productive, future studies of the epidemiology of single gene disorders should take social organisation and cultural anthropology into consideration, thus allowing the targeting of public health programs and contributing to the understanding of population structure and demographic history of the Roma.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC31389/
This sounds very similar to Jews, and suggests Jewish genetics may have the same “group of founder groups” structure. I have a sneaking suspicion that this is due at least as much to Epstein-like superbreeding cult leaders as to pogrom-like bottlenecks.
Here’s another that serves for contrast:
To illuminate findings of the survey of the health status of Gypsies and Travellers by exploring their health‐related beliefs and experiences.
The experience of poor health and daily encounters of ill health among extended family members were normalised and accepted. Four major themes emerged relating to health beliefs and the effect of lifestyle on health for these respondents: the travelling way; low expectations of health; self‐reliance and staying in control; fatalism and fear of death. These themes dominated accounts of health experience and were relevant to the experience. These themes add richness to the health status data and inform our understanding.https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2652909/
This is starkly different from the Jewish attitude toward health and the future, which is characterized by self-efficacy fueled by a religious fervor (Christians can think of this as the “health and wealth gospel” on steroids). That said, I’d be curious to know whether they have the fear of death in common with Gypsies, Boomers, etc. (their religious ethnonationalism and tendency to violent political terrorism suggests otherwise, but I’d want to confirm). As has been established previously on this blog, and counter to what Woody Allen would have you believe, Jews aren’t a bunch neurotic messes- given their unusually psychopathic average sexual attitude they’re better described as a bunch of Hunter Bidens. So it’s likely that the perception of Jewish hypochondria is half performative (“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”) and half due to the problem of self-reporting between groups with different averages (where e.g. Africans self-report as very high in conscientiousness and the Japanese self-report as very low).
Anyway, this is all to say that if you know of any red-pilled books, studies, etc. on Gypsies please drop me a line.
