    Conservatives Big on Fear, Brain Study Finds


    https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-human-beast/201104/conservatives-big-fear-brain-study-finds

    Peering inside the brain with MRI scans, researchers at University College London found that self-described conservative students had a larger amygdala (link is external) than liberals. The amygdala is an almond-shaped structure deep in the brain that is active during states of fear and anxiety. Liberals had more gray matter at least in the anterior cingulate cortex, a region of the brain that helps people cope with complexity.

    Maybe testosterone increases the amygdala to prepare for battle.

    I was thinking more fear instinct vs. understanding actual threat (amygdala vs grey matter)

    Perhaps it's not fear but threat analysis. Having no fear might be a disadvantage.

    i think ACTUAL full-fledged socialists are often weak people in general. people who are somehow comfortable being taken care of and have no inherent need to solve problems themselves.

    but i also think most women fall into this category, regardless of political affiliation.

    Didn't read the article but the thread title sounds right. A bunch of fuckin beta males trying to use majority rules to exert some kind of power over people they can't control.

    If I can get a few more wimmens to fall into my whatever, I will be eternally, and internally, grateful, regardless of their politics.
