Politics in Our Gene

Posted on: November 8, 2010

This is an interesting piece on the correlation between political view and genes.

US researchers have claimed that having a particular gene variant and a sociable time in your teens may mean you are more likely to be politically liberal.

‘People with the novelty-seeking gene variant would be more interested in learning about their friends’ points of views’, said lead author Professor James Fowler, from the University of California. ‘As a consequence, people with this genetic predisposition who have a greater-than-average number of friends would be exposed to a wider variety of social norms and lifestyles, which might make them more liberal than average’.
