Research on conservatives finds them 'less complex'.

I thought some of you may find this entertaining:

*******************
Berkeley study links Reagan, Hitler
Psychological research on conservatives finds them 'less complex'
July 23, 2003

? 2003 WorldNetDaily.com

In a study that ponders the similarities between former President
Ronald Reagan, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Rush Limbaugh, four
American university researchers say they now have a better
understanding of what makes political conservatives tick.

Underlying psychological motivations that mark conservatives are "fear
and aggression, dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity; uncertainty
avoidance; need for cognitive closure; and terror management," the
researchers wrote in an article, "Political Conservatism as Motivated
Social Cognition," recently published in the American Psychological
Association's Psychological Bulletin.

"From our perspective, these psychological factors are capable of
contributing to the adoption of conservative ideological contents,
either independently or in combination," they wrote, according to a
press release issued by the University of California at Berkeley.

The researchers also contend left-wing ideologues such as Joseph
Stalin and Fidel Castro "might be considered politically conservative
in the context of the systems that they defended."

The study was conducted by Associate Professor Jack Glaser and
visiting Professor Frank Sulloway of UC Berkeley, Associate Professor
John Jost of Stanford University's Graduate School of Business and
Professor Arie Kruglanski of the University of Maryland at College
Park.

Glaser allowed that while conservatives are less "integratively
complex" than others, "it doesn't mean that they're simple-minded."

Conservatives don't feel the need to jump through complex,
intellectual hoops in order to understand or justify some of their
positions, he said, according to the Berkeley news release.

"They are more comfortable seeing and stating things in black and
white in ways that would make liberals squirm," Glaser explained.

The assistant professor of public policy said President George W.
Bush's comments during a 2001 trip to Italy provide an example.

The Republican president told assembled world leaders, "I know what I
believe, and I believe what I believe is right."

Glaser also noted Bush told a British reporter last year, "Look, my
job isn't to nuance."

'Elegant and unifying explanation'

The Berkeley news release said the psychologists sought patterns among
88 samples, involving 22,818 participants, taken from journal
articles, books, conference papers, speeches, interviews, judicial
opinions and survey studies.

Consistent, common threads were found in 10 "meta-analytic
calculations" performed on the material, Glaser said.

Berkeley's Sulloway said the research is the first of its kind,
synthesizing vast amount of information to produce an "elegant and
unifying explanation" for political conservatism under the rubric of
"motivated social cognition."

This area of psychological study, the news release explained, "entails
the tendency of people's attitudinal preferences on policy matters to
be explained by individual needs based on personality, social
interests or existential needs."

Noting most all belief systems develop in part to satisfy
psychological needs, the researchers said their conclusions do not
"mean that conservatism is pathological or that conservative beliefs
are necessarily false, irrational, or unprincipled."

Their finding also are not judgmental, they emphasized.

"In many cases, including mass politics, 'liberal' traits may be
liabilities, and being intolerant of ambiguity, high on the need for
closure, or low in cognitive complexity might be associated with such
generally valued characteristics as personal commitment and unwavering
loyalty," the researchers wrote.

However, the study showed, according to Glaser, liberals appear to
have a higher tolerance for change than conservatives.

The conservatives' intolerance for ambiguity and need for closure can
be seen, he said, in the current controversy over whether the Bush
administration ignored intelligence information that discounted
reports of Iraq's alleged purchase of nuclear material from Africa.

"For a variety of psychological reasons, then, right-wing populism may
have more consistent appeal than left-wing populism, especially in
times of potential crisis and instability," he said.

The researchers said the "terror management" tendency of conservatism
is exemplified in post-Sept. 11 America, where many people appear to
shun and even punish outsiders and those who threaten the status of
cherished world views.

Likewise, they said, concerns with fear and threat can be linked to
another key dimension of conservatism, an endorsement of inequality.

That view is reflected in the Indian caste system, South African
apartheid and the conservative, segregationist politics of the late
Sen. Strom Thurmond, the researchers wrote.

A current example of conservatives' tendency to accept inequality, he
said, can be seen in their policy positions toward "disadvantaged
minorities" such as gays and lesbians.

Stalin a conservative?

A broad range of conservatives share a resistance to change and
acceptance of inequality, the researchers said, linking Reagan,
Hitler, Mussolini and talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

These men were all right-wing conservatives, the study said, because
they preached a return to an idealized past and condoned inequality in
some form.

Glaser conceded the research could be viewed as partisan because it
focused on political conservatism, but he argued there is a vast
amount of information about conservatism and little about liberalism.

The researchers acknowledged left-wing ideologues such as Stalin,
Castro and Nikita Kruschev resisted change in the name of
egalitarianism after they established power.

But these men, the study said, might be considered politically
conservative in the context of the systems that they defended.

Stalin, for example, was concerned about defending and preserving the
existing Soviet system.

The above is an extract from my fictional novel, "The random postings of Edame".
:tongue:

In the beginning was the word. And man could not handle the word, and the hearing of the word, and he asked God to take away his ears so that he might live in peace without having to hear words which might upset his equinamity or corrupt the unblemished purity of his conscience.

And God, hearing this desperate plea from His creation, wrinkled His mighty brow for a moment and then leaned down toward man, beckoning that he should come close so as to hear all that was about to be revealed to him.

"Fuck you," He whispered, and frowned upon the pathetic supplicant before retreating to His heavens.

While some conservatives may see things in black and white there are many liberals who see things the same way from their perspective.

It is the appalling lack of thinking in both instances that frightens and sickens me.

Certainly rings a bell on this board. You've only got to disagree with a right-winger and he's off writing nasty things about you in your ratings to try and feel better about himself. They seem to take things way too personally.

Obviously not. I've certainly never felt the slightest need to go and insult someone in the ratings after being involved with them in a thread. I just don't take things that seriously.

The point was, as the article suggested, conservatives have a tendency to:

punish outsiders and those who threaten the status of cherished world views

This is clearly demonstrated on this board. I don't see me or Gazz or Edame going screaming to the ratings first and posting insults every time we're involved in a thread. Yet it's a common trait of almost all the right-wingers on the board. Yourself included.

heh well in my opinion being "conservative" would indeed make one's political views less complex because from what I understand, a conservative is somebody who wants to keep things from changing much.

I believe change almost always makes things more complex, due to new "variables" and new "possibilities" that most political change brings


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

Why did you go running to the ratings if your panties weren't in one hellacious knot?

Atleast i can admit it, you on the other hand live in a world of libbies do no wrong.

Nah, they can do wrong. I was just commenting on a point the article raised that seemed to correspond to what happens on this board.

No it didn't. I can assure you if you hadn't gone screaming to the ratings with your panties in a twist it would never have crossed my mind.

Some of us, i.e. YOU, are a serial dissembler, as evidenced by your quoted post.

Here is my rating of you:

"constantly redefines existing terms to suit his own argument. refuses to examine evidence, even that offered by himself. I disagree with many on this board, but at least most of them are honest. Alex123 is not."

here is yours of me:

Fine. The original point was how right-wingers feel more upset and threatened by people disagreeing with their cherished world views. That certainly appears to be confirmed on this board. Right-wingers get upset and feel the urge to post bad ratings while me, Gazz and edame rarely get that upset that we feel the need.

That really is all there is to it.

Shrinks call your behavior 'projecting', I believe.

It doesn't surprise me that you know all about shrinks. If you get your panties in a twist over a thread on a shroom board you obviously need a great deal of help. I genuinely hope you get it.

Now that just made me laugh....I don't have too many conversations with Edeme but Gazz and Yourself are the epitome of emotional.

Is anyone interested in actually addressing the theory presented by the Berkley Boys?

There is way too much stuff in this thread by way too many posters that is 100% bona fide PM material. The Private Message function is there for a reason. Use it.

Stop the personal slams and get back on topic, or this thread is history.
