Necessary VS unrealistic: the difference between left and right in politics

Bow down the right wave left at the political level they have something of fruitlessness in the sense that a party can call itself left-wing but act as one of rights but, above all, because problems do not always have effective solutions from the same political spectrum: sometimes solutions of right or left, depending on the moment and the problem.

All in all, the brains of those who opt for left or right solutions systematically, whatever happens, there may be a difference that is precisely what drives this dichotomy.

Brain waves

To test what the brain waves of Republicans and Democrats in the United States look like, in a recent study they were introduced to a heterogeneous group 60 sentences in two versions: one supported an idea consistent with a particular foundation, and the other version rejected that idea.

Thus, for example, one half read:

Total equality in the workplace is necessary.

The other half read:

Total equality in the workplace is not realistic.

The idea was to test how leftist people reacted more positively to the necessary ideas although they are utopian or unattainable, and those on the right reacted better to the ideas that are more realistic, practical, capable of getting going.

All subjects were equipped with a cap that measured their brain waves when the words of each sentence appeared on a screen, word for word, with the purpose of determining which brains showed evidence of surprise or shock at the time the keyword was presented . The results are presented by one of its authors, Jonathan Haidtin his book The mind of the righteous:

Liberal brains showed more surprise, compared to conservative brains, in response to prayers that rejected concerns about Care and Equity. They also showed more surprise in response to the prayers that supported the concerns regarding Loyalty, Authority and Holiness.

It is possible, then, that we are born with a partisan brain, or that it is forged based on certain experiences. And that brain reason differently and look for different types of evidence to reach different conclusions:

Intuitions come first, strategic thinking later.
