well its a functioning link, but it takes us to a page with not much material on it, nothing about Astrologers; that's for sure.

Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Here it is... an interesting study... Looks like the general public is quite diverse... But, also... perhaps the results were supposed to come up the way they did... Art of misdirection???

Sorry guys , had to delete it..

Science? What has that ever proven?

Astrology is real. The stars just made this study up to test your faith.

Perhaps they shouldn't have even done the study because it's just hurting the feelings of people who believe in astrology.

I think a study of such is always gonna be biased because one needs to go out and search for those answers them selfs

Astrology states that someone's personality can be predicted based on the time of year which they are born.

This study shows that someone's birthday doesn't have an effect on their personality.

How would someone check this themselves? Should they conduct a study themselves? They certainly can't base their opinions of astrology on their friend's personalities, as that's not a large enough sample size to reach any valid conclusions.

That doesn't include links does it? I thought that this only applied to actually reproducing the text in the work.

Like that Chinese calendar, that predicts people's personalities by the YEAR they are born... haha.
Peace.
