Language Differences between Liberals and Conservatives
Is Conservatism an Extreme form of The Male Brain?

Language differences are also seen in the direction we have been observing, according to political ideology. A 2001 Gallup poll indicated that those who identified as being liberal are more likely to be bilingual than moderates or conservatives.38 Other studies have found that liberals score higher than conservatives on verbal ability tests,39 and on vocabulary tests.40 Lower verbal ability has also been associated with right-wing authoritarianism and social dominance orientation,41 two constructs highly related to conservative ideology that we will discuss later.
