Replication Study Number 1. December 29, 2010.</span>&nbsp; 60-plus psychological traits related to political attitudes are measured with questionnaire scales tapping hypothesized facets of liberal and conservative worldviews, confirming initial findings. The initial sample is augmented from about 55 to as many as 189, including a second West Coast community college sample and an East Coast university sample. This study confirms the high reliability and significant validity of the scales for differentiating liberal and conservative worldviews.</td> <td valign="top">31 pp.<br> <a href="Docs/LibConReplicationstudy-1report1210.pdf" target="_blank">PDF</a> </p> </td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top"><span style="font-weight: bold">37.</span></td> <td valign="top"><span style="font-weight: bold">Getting Beyond In-fighting; Resolving Conflict between Conservative and Liberal Political Worldviews to Address Global Warming.
