Jewish men are the least kindhearted: In the last post, I was interested in bitchy women. This time let's do kind men. The General Social Survey asked 1,079 males if they were soft-hearted. I calculated the means for each ethnic group with at least 20 respondents, and listed them below:
Mean soft-heartedness score
Puerto Rican 4.35
American Indian 3.98
All American men 3.92
Overall SD 1.08
There weren't enough cases of Puerto Rican women in the last post to include them, but they did have a high kindness score, just like the men here. Black men, like their female counterparts, are not nice, but the most interesting finding to me is Jewish men. Hollywood, for example, tends to portray Jewish guys as sensitive, Woody Allen being a great cartoonish example. But they are clearly the meanest bunch, according to these data. Perhaps Michael Savage is more representative. The distance between them and Puerto Rican men is three-fourths of a standard deviation--a large difference.
