Liberals responded strongly to the prompts, consistently moving their attention in the direction suggested to them by a face on a computer screen. Conservatives, on the other hand, did not.

Why? Researchers suggested that conservatives' value on personal autonomy might make them less likely to be influenced by others, and therefore less responsive to the visual prompts.

What are your thoughts in this.

Very interesting.

Are liberals more easily fouled, or influenced? Rather than conservatives?

Or are liberals more easily guided, than conservatives.

Or are conservatives more arrogant than liberals.

Or are conservatives have more strong character than conservatives.

This can be looked at in different ways.

What are your conclusions.

So.. the article cites Libs as looking at things others look at regardless of topic.. Apparently the libs were far more responsive to predictive input and the Cons were oblivious to the details...

The whole "are they more arrogant".. easier led... etc. etc..

Project much?

Another possible interpretation is that liberals are more empathic than conservatives..

Liberals may have followed the "gaze cues," meanwhile, because they tend to be more responsive to others, the study suggests.
