Abstract

This panel investigates the effects of various psychological aspects on political attitudes and values. Three of the papers examine the influence of personality traits (namely the Big Five and authoritarianism) on political information, interest in politics, ideological preferences, turnout and vote choice in a comparative perspective. Another paper ascertains the usefulness of an implicit association test compared to list experiments to measure sensible attitudes regarding affirmative action. Finally, one paper determines the relative importance of learning and exposure to diversity in accounting for the amount of deliberation-induced attitude change about immigration policy.
