The importance of adult life-span perspective in explaining variations in political ideology

Grzegorz Sędek , Małgorzata Kossowska , Klara Rydzewska


As a comment on Hibbing et al.’s paper, we discuss the evolution of political and social views from more liberal to more conservative over the span of adulthood. We show that Hibbing et al.’s theoretical model creates a false prediction from this developmental perspective, as increased conservatism in the adult life-span trajectory is accompanied by the avoidance of negative bias.
