Ich hatte hier schon oft Postings über psychologische Unterschiede von progressiven und konservativen Menschen. Ich wusste allerdings nicht, dass sich das ganz konkret in Kognition und sogar Augenbewegungen manifestiert:

Liberals and conservatives were fitted with devices that tracked their gaze, and were shown a series of four-image collages containing pictures that were either "appetitive" (e.g., something happy or positive) or "aversive" (showing something threatening, scary, or disgusting). The eye-tracking device allowed the researchers to measure where the research subjects first fixed their gaze, how long it took them to do so, and then how long they tended to dwell on different images. […] The results of Hibbing's study were clear: The conservatives tended to focus their eyes much more rapidly on the negative or aversive images, and also to dwell on them for a lot longer. The authors therefore concluded that based on results like these, 'those on the political right and those on the political left may simply experience the world differently.'
