Study: Conservatives understand liberals far better than they understand conservatives

Posted by Chris R16/R2730 on Fri Apr 13 16:16:00 2012


Best part, and confirmation of what I've been saying for YEARS:

But Haidtís research went one step further, asking self-indentified conservatives to answer those questionnaires as if they were liberals and for liberals to do the opposite. What Haidt found is that conservatives understand liberalsí moral values better than liberals understand where conservatives are coming from. Worse yet, liberals donít know what they donít know; they donít understand how limited their knowledge of conservative values is. If anyone is close-minded here itís not conservatives.

This explains why they react with anger and emotion to conservative pushback, and why they cling bitterly to racism, sexism and class warfare. They simply are incapable of doing anything else.
