Why Are There so Many Militant Democrats?
I posted This same Question above to One of the Platforms I post to Daily and the Response below I found to be seriously informative.
"Study from 2012 now corrected to show liberals, not conservatives, more authoritarian"
(Leftists are also much quicker to become physically violent (or verbally ad hominem), imho.)
A little more detail
"EPIC CORRECTION OF THE DECADE"
"Thus, where we indicated that higher scores in Table 1 (page 40) reflect a more conservative response, they actually reflect a more liberal response. Specifically, in the original manuscript, the descriptive analyses report that those higher in Eysenck’s psychoticism are more conservative, but they are actually more liberal; and where the original manuscript reports those higher in neuroticism and social desirability are more liberal, they are, in fact, more conservative."
If you go back to the excerpts above and swap out the ideological categories you will have to suppress a horselaugh. Liberals are more prone to “psychoticism” (which the authors hasten to explain doesn’t meant “psychotic,” but what the hell. . .), and hence authoritarianism, which would come as no surprise to any conservative who pays attention to authoritarian liberalism. And people higher in Social Desirability will turn out to be conservatives, which is also congruent with the many simpler survey findings that conservatives are happier than liberals.
This correction really made the rounds!
