Study finds Republicans scare more easily

In a Rice University study, people with conservative political views reacted more strongly to “scary images” (like maggot-infested wounds, bloodied faces and a spider on someone’s face). This according to a report at New Scientist. The research looked at how strong participants blinked and how the electric conductivity of their skin changed.

Previous research has shown people who experience traumatic events lean toward the Republican side of the political spectrum as well.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
