If you want to tell whether someone is conservative or liberal, what are a couple of completely nonpolitical questions that will give a good clue?

How’s this: Would you be willing to slap your father in the face, with his permission, as part of a comedy skit?

And, second: Does it disgust you to touch the faucet in a public restroom?

Studies suggest that conservatives are more often distressed by actions that seem disrespectful of authority, such as slapping Dad. Liberals don’t worry as long as Dad has given permission.

Likewise, conservatives are more likely than liberals to sense contamination or perceive disgust. People who would be disgusted to find that they had accidentally sipped from an acquaintance’s drink are more likely to identify as conservatives.

The upshot is that liberals and conservatives don’t just think differently, they also feel differently. This may even be a result, in part, of divergent neural responses.

I wouldn't put too much belief into it, as I personally meet their criteria that would classify me a conservative..... maybe in life, but certainly not political party (independent).

No....... I would never lay my hands on my parents and I never have, and I would stand there like I have in my youth, and take the best they have to give........ Even if it wasn't always justified, but, in reality......

I got punished for somethings I did and didn't do "siblings", I also got by with no punishment a few times, when I should have been punished good, and real good...... So, I considered the scales of parental justice balanced, even when I didn't understand they were being balanced....

I honor my parents and will cherish all they are, and have been to me...

My father is gone now, and my mom is ageing, and I take care of her, like she once took care of me.....

I'm afraid in China only the most impious person can be liberal.

It only takes 20 years for a liberal to become a conservative without changing a single idea.
