Harvard Mind Survey: Meet the Politicians!

Spread the love

You’ll remember that some time ago (ten, eleven minutes?) I reposted (from gregladen.com) an interesting story about a study of how the mind works. I did that because I knew that the researchers involved in this study have a new survey up on their web site, and that you might want to know about it. From Heather Gray, one of the researchers:

…we recently revised the mind survey, just in time for the presidential primaries. Now our respondents are asked to judge pairs of American politicians– for instance, is Barack Obama or Rudy Giuliani more capable of being honest, exerting self-control, or feeling pain? Aside from collecting some fascinating data about perceptions of the politicians, we’re attempting to replicate the original findings regarding dimensions of mind.

You may enjoy taking the survey. It is here.
