Scientists have found that people with conservative views have brains with larger amygdalas, almond-shaped areas in the centre of the brain often associated with anxiety and emotions, London’s Daily Telegraph reports.
They also have smaller anterior cingulate, an area at the front of the brain associated with courage and looking on the bright side of life, than those from the opposite end of the political spectrum.
“The anterior cingulate is a part of the brain that is on the middle surface of the brain at the front and we found that the thickness of the grey matter, where the nerve cells of neurons are, was thicker the more people described themselves as liberal or left wing and thinner the more they described themselves as conservative or right wing,” he told the BBC program.“The amygdala is a part of the brain which is very old and very ancient and thought to be very primitive and to do with the detection of emotions. The right amygdala was larger in those people who described themselves as conservative.
Pride. Gluttony. Greed. Sloth. Envy. Wrath. Lust.
Pride because sometimes it is hard for me to admit Im wrong and I don’t accept criticism well, at least on the outside, on the inside I break apart slowly. That leads to wrath, which is my most dominant sin. I get angry so quickly it kind of takes over. I think it stems from sadness though. And lust, lust is what has gotten me in the most trouble. I think I’m addicting to not thinking and Wrath and Lust are great ways to get that way.

Just because someone dates you, doesn’t mean they love you.
Just because someone loves you, doesn’t mean they won’t hurt you.
