Personality predicts politics<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>A person with a low NE tends to glance at a shirt, for example, and describe it as a shirt, but someone with a high NE calls it a ghastly or great shirt. The latter group tend to make more judgements about what they see. <br><br>People with a high NE were much more likely to ally themselves to either the Republican or Democratic party, be a political activist or glean political information from the media, Petty reports in the Journal of Personality1 . They were also simply more likely to vote. This was true even once their age, sex, income and education level had been taken into account. "Personality matters in politics," Petty says.<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Sounds about right, judging by the personalities in HERE... <br><br><br>[color:red]C'mon...you know me.</font color=red>

I may be reading between the lines but I think the gist of the story is:<br><br>People with low NE do not vote, are not interested in politics, are boring grey shirt bed wetters who like a world of strict rules so they don't have to make a decision themselves and they're stupid to boot.<br><br>I'm wearing a colorful Hawaiian shirt today and I am very interested in politics. How about you Sean? Are you wear a garish Hawaiian shirt right now? <br><br><br><br><br><br>luciferase is a four nineteener
"I'm wearing a colorful Hawaiian shirt today and I am very interested in politics. How about you Sean? Are you wear a garish Hawaiian shirt right now?"<br><br>According to Homer Simpson, Hawaiian shirts are either worn by gay guys or big, fat party animals.<br><br>
