Article of the Week
'Cognitive flexibility' associated with voting attitudes in EU Referendum
Researchers from the University of Cambridge conducted a series of tests on over 300 UK residents in an effort to examine the extent to which differences in cognitive styles impact ideological preferences. The researchers tested cognitive style by administering two classic cognitive flexibility tests: a card-sorting task and a neutral word association task. They found that participants who exhibited a more "flexible" cognitive style also had a decreased propensity toward authoritarianism and were less likely to support Brexit. Those with a more "persistent" cognitive stye were more likely to have nationalistic tendencies and were more likely to support leaving the European Union.
