I am a Ph.D. psychologist specializing currently in political psychology research, having background in clinical and industrial/organizational psychology. I present papers at international and national conventions. All my publications are on my web site, http://Politicalpsychologyresearch.com∞
. This is a 501-c-3 non-profit. I am a member of the American Psychological Association and the International Society of Political Psychologists.
On of my main findings is that about 90 percent of Americans endorse "public democracy" defined as government serving them as members of the community overall. Only 20% endorse "tribal democracy", government serving them as members of special interest groups. There are two distinct types of citizens, prosocial and antisocial, defined by scores on numerous traits, including religious belief types, foreign policy attitudes, preferred government types, attitudes about war, etc.
I have developed a model for a new form of political party that would promote public democracy.
