  • How Could You Vote for THAT? The ABC’s of Political Psychology

    Cindy Cooke, Adjunct Professor, Glendale Community College

    Sadly and ominously, person-to-person civilized political dialogue with people who think differently than we do has virtually disappeared. For the last 50 years, our country has become increasingly polarized: we tend to only read newspapers that reflect our beliefs, listen to the stations we agree with, and even move to communities because they are populated with those who think the same.

    Regardless, it IS possible to understand each other, “get” how other people think, why they vote for that “jerk or jerk-ess” you may despise, where they’re coming from and how they see the world. Trade your anger and frustration for understanding and insight. Learn how to talk to people who are 180 degrees different from you, and why both of you might actually be right.
