More liberal/conservative differences

See this article.

"A new Milgram-like experiment published this month in the Journal of Personality. [...] What researchers discovered was surprising: Those who are described as 'agreeable, conscientious personalities' are more likely to follow orders and deliver electric shocks that they believe can harm innocent people, while 'more contrarian, less agreeable personalities' are more likely to refuse to hurt others. [...] The study also found that people holding left-wing political views were less willing to hurt others. One particular group held steady and refused destructive orders: 'women who had previously participated in rebellious political activism such as strikes or occupying a factory.'"
