I think single minded in describing Bu$hCo is way too generous. But it doesn't surprise me that liberals/progressives, not only stay on top of the life of the mind, but also are more willing to change the way they live according to the new facts, the new reality. Hat tip to Mr. Shutterwi, & I use the term Mr. quite loosely. He's mad me for going to a wedding this weekend that had a lot of cute women of all ages. I even danced briefly with a hot California number.
Exploring the neurobiology of politics, scientists have found that liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives because of how their brains work.
Scientists at New York University and UCLA showed through a simple experiment to be reported Monday in the journal Nature Neuroscience 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.
