Liberals More Analytic, Conservatives more Holistic

{ Submitted by Adam.S on Sun, 2015-01-25 01:01 }

A recent study concludes that liberals think more analytically than conservatives. Conservatives are holistic thinkers, responding to the overall picture, but likely to
ignore details.
Liberals are archetypic Westerners in their viewpoints, but the authors caution that while "Studies show that analytical thinkers predominate in Western, educated, industrialized, rich and democratic societies. . . . they make up only about 15 percent of the world's population."
