Scientific Study Finds Left-wing Brain And Right-wing Brain Process Differently

"Exploring the neurobiology of politics, scientists have found that liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives because of how their brains work. In a simple experiment reported today in the journal Nature Neuroscience, scientists at New York University and UCLA show that political orientation is related to differences in how the brain processes information.

Previous psychological studies have found that conservatives tend to be more structured and persistent in their judgments whereas liberals are more open to new experiences. The latest study found those traits are not confined to political situations but also influence everyday decisions.

The results show "there are two cognitive styles -- a liberal style and a conservative style," said UCLA neurologist Dr. Marco Iacoboni, who was not connected to the latest research.

"David Amodio, of New York University, writing in the journal Nature Neuroscience, says conservatives were found to be "more structured and persistent in their judgments"; in tests they had "higher average scores" on measures of the personal need for "order, structure and closure". (However), Liberals showed "higher tolerance of ambiguity and complexity".

They could have saved a great deal of time and just asked us.

It makes me wonder if the rights can figure out what the symbolism is in the Magic Flute. Allegory would be a challenge. That would explain the co-existence of dinosaurs and the Flintstones.

All that peer-reviewed scientific crap is just a left-wing conspiracy.
