huh!  LIBERALS!....

Exploring the neurobiology of politics, scientists have found that liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives because of how their brains work.

- scientists have found that liberals tolerate ambiguity and conflict better than conservatives because of how their brains work
- conservatives tend to be more structured and persistent in their judgments whereas liberals are more open to new experiences
- Liberals had more brain activity and made fewer mistakes than conservatives
- liberals were 4.9 times as likely as conservatives to show activity in the brain circuits that deal with conflicts, and 2.2 times as likely to score in the top half of the distribution for accuracy
- liberals could be expected to more readily accept new social, scientific or religious ideas.
- There is ample data from the history of science showing that social and political liberals indeed do tend to support major revolutions in science
