    Still, I tried following links to where that graph came from, and can find no scientific data anywhere. It is possible I missed it, but it appears that the author collected data from some poll on a website and used it to construct that graph. Unsure.

    The graph appears to originate in this article, which mentions this site as the source of said data.


    But nowhere do I see the data, just more articles on the same general topics of morals in politics and such.
    Yeah, I followed the links too.

    The graph is fairly self explanatory, the more interested a liberal is in politics, the greater the level of empathy. That was also stated in the accompanying note I originally posted.


    and the same for conservatives? How do you know it isn't the other way around? Maybe people become more moderate when they become more interested in politics.
    Gee, you just are trying so hard to distract from your errors, and the attempt is really cute.

    I still haven't gotten an answer.....are you part of your 1%?

    Where did you get 3.95 from?

    There you go, showing those first rate math skills. You still cannot figure out what the "very interested" liberal mean score was.......even after you demanded I pay attention to the vertical scale!



    Maybe you should stick to cartoons.

    You're changing your story.

    That's why you could not tell whether the difference was outside of the margin of error......or that the very liberal mean was @ 3.95!
    Then I asked you if very liberal was the same thing as very interested and you said no.

    As I said earlier, the liberals are around 3.8 and the conservatives are around 3.6. BFD

    The line graph is a wonderful example of how people use graphs to misrepresent data. The actual points are only around .2 apart, but if you just glance at the chart all you would notice is that there appears to be a huge empathy gap between liberals and conservatives, when in reality there is not.

    and we don't even know how scientific the study was

    It's hard to find the details.

    I am a libertarian precisely because I have so much empathy.

    You can't read a scale!

    Amazing!

    Please, FFS, stick with cartoons.
