    Default Why are N people usually more liberal then S people?

    Maybe I have wrong picture but to me it looks like that sensors are usually more conservative and traditional then intuitives.


    I have my own theories about this but for now I would like to hear other peoples opinions about this subject.



    Also I want to say that I am coming from different political environment then most of people here.

    My basic assess is that intuitives find it easier to see multiple views of the same situation and empathize actively with others... so they place less stock on one.

    Sensors tend to focus on their past experience to evaluate new situations, and so they have a litmus test of "right/wrong" that guides them.

    S are the majority and are often more concerned with tradition and the familiar. N are the minority and are often more concerned with novelty.

    I agree with jennifer. Also I noticed people grew up in big cities tend to be more liberal and the ones who grew up in the suburbs or small towns tend to be more conservative. Not that I've done any real research, so I could be wrong.of course some s's that are liberals could have been raised with those values.

    wait we're not talking politically are we?
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    No, I am interested in psychology behind the liberal and conservative block and why in many cases the divide comes down to S vs N conflict.
