Political Psychology


This is a very interesting discussion of political psychology. There’s also a really cool set of surveys that allow one to see the different responses that liberals, conservatives, and centrists give to a whole variety of moral and political questions, as well as visual markers (dots, lines, triangles, colors, etc.): http://www.yourmorals.org/. Many of the questions are problematic and flawed, but they’re all intriguing. I’ve done about ten of the surveys, and my responses do not seem to correlate very well with any of the groups. In quite a number of instances, I’m considerably more liberal than the liberals, and other times I score more closely to conservatives. Sometimes I’m in-between. I call myself “radically independent,” and so this might make some sense. Thought-provoking.
