tl;dr Libertarians are the smartest political affiliation. Suck my dink, brah

Compared to self-identified liberals and conservatives, libertarians showed:
1) stronger endorsement of individual liberty as their foremost guiding principle, and weaker endorsement of all other moral principles
2) a relatively cerebral as opposed to emotional cognitive style
3) lower interdependence and social relatedness

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the Cognitive Reflection Task libertarians found the correct answers to these questions at a slightly higher rate than liberals and moderately higher rate compared to conservatives (see Figures 3 and 4). Libertarians report lower emotional responsiveness, but higher levels of psychological reactance. Libertarians exhibit a reason-based cognitive style according to a variety of measures [http://www.plosone.org...].

Because being a sheep in the herd is a necessary good thing?
