In e.g. Burgess and Moore - standard model a primer(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it is stated that for two spinors (majorana)

[tex] \bar{\psi_1}\psi_2 = (\bar{\psi_1}\psi_2)^T = - \psi_2^T \bar{\psi_1}^T [/tex]

since the spinors are anticommuting objects, thus ordering reversion gives -1

but they also state that

[tex] (\psi_1^\dagger\psi_2 )^* = (\psi_1^\dagger \psi_2)^\dagger = \psi_2^\dagger \psi_1 [/tex]

i.e. "without a minus sign" (explicity written in text)

I am SOOO confused, how how how can this be consistent??

best regards
