    An interesting study published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology by Harvard researchers printed here The Harvard Crimson:

    Study Finds Correlation Between Belief in God and Cognitive Style | News | The Harvard Crimson

    For months (years) I've argued that conservatives, and in particular social conservatives, rarely engage in critical thinking. Posted above is an article which supports my observations.

    Read about this. Certainly supported by the observation.

    I am reflective.

    The points outlined in the study can also be applied to politics.

    While some are not intuitive, thinkers are reflective individuals. Most objective thinkers even possess the ability to read between lines and hear unspoken words.

    I suppose the usual trolls and proud members of the echo chamber have avoided this thread; I also suppose intuitive, reflective and thinker are words which frighten them.

    Does that have something to do with hallucinogenics?

    Flexibility....Requisite variety.

    The most flexible element in any situation has the power to exert the most influence over it.

    The "either or" nature of the question denotes a level of limiting belief.
