I think that the effect is stronger than just that. Of the poly people associated with LW that I know, at least a quarter knew they were poly before they got into LW. Sure, it's a small sample size, but I would be surprised if polyamorous people were less likely to be interested in rationality.


Datapoint: I was poly before joining LW.

This might be an interesting question to ask Yvain to put on the next mega survey.
