I also found a correlation of .59 (n=65) between a measure of cognitive complexity derived from rep grids (% of variance accounted for by 1st principal component) and the percentage of equational clauses (denoted by forms of the verb to be in english and other languages derived from latin) in a long narrative (1000+ words). Perhaps there is some relationship between bullshit and cognitive simplicity.
