Is There a Psychological Method to President Trump’s Madness?

Some conclusions from an article, “When political incorrect language promotes authenticity,” in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology:

Political correctness is “using language or behavior to seem sensitive to others’ feelings, especially those others who seem socially disadvantaged.”

One pilot study demonstrate that being politically incorrect makes communicators appear more authentic—specifically, less susceptible to external influence.

Using politically incorrect language made a communicator appear particularly authentic among conservative perceivers but particularly cold among liberal perceivers.

Together, these findings demonstrate when and how using politically incorrect language can enhance a person’s authenticity.
