It's official: I'm a liberal

At least if this old article I just came across is any sort of accurate guide:

According to a controversial new study, set to be published in The Journal of Political Psychology, the bedrooms and offices of liberals, who are generally thought of as open, tend to be colorful and awash in books about travel, ethnicity, feminism and music, along with music CDs covering folk, classic and modern rock, as well as art supplies, movie tickets and travel memorabilia.

Conservatives, on the other hand, tend to surround themselves with calendars, postage stamps, laundry baskets, irons and sewing materials in their personal spaces, according to the study. Their bedrooms and offices are well-lighted and decorated with sports paraphernalia and flags—especially American ones.

If this is true, I'm the biggest liberal ever. My room looks exactly like the "liberal" one and absolutely nothing close to the conservative one.

However, I suspect most of these so-called personality tests are total bunk.


  1. That looks like a young vs. old comparison to me.

  2. Oh, and male vs. female.

    SE, are you like us liberal men? A transexual lesbian who simply finds it convenient to keep the penis?

  3. Lame.

    If that's the case, I'm liberal too. And I have African art from South Africa (given to me as a gift from my sister) to boot!

    It's time they start breaking down conservatism. There are different grades and degrees of it. They make it sound as if it's one monolithic entity.

  4. It's true. I'm a decorative liberal. All my conservative friends think so too (though not for the same reasons).

  5. SE, are you like us liberal men?

    Actually, this is a Cork post. Welcome back, Cork!

    I suspect though, no, I more than suspect, that Cork and I are both liberals, in the true, original meaning of that word.

    A transexual lesbian who simply finds it convenient to keep the penis?

    Ginx, you've opened my eyes. I never realized what I was before now. Thank you. I've always wondered why I enjoy shopping with my better half, and now I know.
