Psychological underpinnings of democracy: Empathy, authoritarianism, self-esteem, interpersonal trust, normative identity style, and openness to experience as predictors of support for democratic values

Abstract [en]

Although the role of individual differences for political attitudes is undisputed, the psychological deter-minants of support for democratic values received limited attention. This study aimed at incorporating a variety of measures of stable individual differences and determining their relative effect on support for democratic values as well as at testing a new predictor, i.e. normative identity style. The analysis of a sur-vey in a sample of middle adolescents (N = 1341; 16–17 year olds) showed that (a) right-wing authoritar-ianism, interpersonal trust, normative identity style, and empathy were good predictors of support for democratic values, (b) empathy and authoritarianism were the strongest predictors of democratic com-mitments, and that (c) self-esteem was not related to support for democratic values.
