Brain Differences In Liberals and Conservatives

An interesting idea, of course.  Probably true, in some ways.  But there could be so much wrong with this 2011 study performed by two liberal universities.  How do you define each camp?  Did each camp contain a 50/50 proportion of sexes?  Ages?  What does "conservative" or "liberal" mean, as defined by current politics?  Many people who call themselves Democrats (liberals) actually display hallmarks of conservative thinking and behaviour.  Many black "democrat" neighbourhoods are very patriarchal, territorial, resistant to change, homophobic, etc.  Many republicans are libertarian or even libertine on social or on economic issues, or in personal behaviour.  So, there's all that.

Then you can get biases in reading the results.  This blip seems to say that since liberals are more accurate (about conflict?) that's why they can seem like flip-floppers.  What?!  And, sometimes it's not as good to be accurate as it is to be alive.   But, as far as accuracy goes, I've seen almost nothing but inaccuracy from the DNC Dems, on every issue.  But maybe that's because they are actually conservatives.  And so many of today's republicans are speaking up, rationally, sounding like JFK Dems of the 60's.  Meanwhile, they are labelled as wildly irrational Trumpsters.  Larry Elder was racially attacked, physically, and was called, "The Black Face of White Supremacism."  Absurd. Democrat is not liberal and republican is not conservative. This is actually a nonsense study, it seems. Highly inaccurate. I have't read the actual study though. Who has time?
