The major differences between strong conservatives and strong liberals--empathy and inclusion and other brain-determined qualities.

Strong liberals tend to be those who empathize with those around them and they favor inclusion. On the other hand, conservatives tend not to be a sympathetic and they favor more individual rights. A terrific place to read about these differences is in Chris Mooney's wonderful book, "The Republican Brain."
