    Default Lefty louts you just knew it

    Left-wingers can't control themselves as well as conservatives, claims study | Daily Mail Online

    No wonder student protests always turn into brawls! Left-wingers can't control themselves as well as conservatives, claims study
    Scientists tested the abilities conservative students and 'liberals'
    They classed conservatives as those who endorse traditional values
    While liberals 'endorse egalitarian ideals and progressive change'
    Conservatives were better at 'regulating attention' and persisting with tasks and the difference was linked to how closely they believed in free will

    The reason for the difference, the authors found is those on the right are more likely to believe that they have free will and that individuals have the power to change things.

    US scientists tested the abilities of undergraduates who considered themselves politically conservative (David Cameron pictured) and 'liberals'. They found conservatives were better at 'regulating attention' and persisting with tasks and the difference between the groups was linked to how closely they believed in free will

    The leftists by contrast believe that everything is controlled by forces outside of their control - such as by their genes or society, the researchers claim.

    In three studies, US scientists tested the abilities of two groups: undergraduates who considered themselves politically conservative and 'liberals'.
    does that mean lefties are more likely to be god botherers as well?

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I am however prepared to believe people with better self determination would challenge lefty mantras and wholesale acceptance of all people's foibles based on their skin colour.

    They were also asked whether they agreed with statements about typically right-wing and socially conservative politics such as, 'Give law breakers stiffer sentences,' and 'Schools should teach children to obey authority.'
    sorry which countries shot people and supplied the parents with a bill or put them in Gulags?

    Conversations like this are obviously silly. Except the one just after the election seeking to explain the Tory win. It said that left wing voters tend to be more extrovert about their political views. And they automatically expect that people they talk to agree with their views and also vote Labour.

    As someone else said - left wingers/bleeding heart liberals etc are less rationale because they believe their situation is not caused by their actions.

    This gives them a nice excuse to therefore not be help responsible for their actions - it was the state, the genes, the aliens etc

    fact is they are looking to be part of system that supports them no matter what the expense.

    Lets restrict it to NF and you. Lefties tend to work hard. Righties tend to sponge off the workers.
