Antоaneta Hristova
Abstract:
The article presents a study on the profile of conservative attitudes in Bulgaria. It examined the fundamental concepts of political ideology, left, right and associated conservatism and leberalizam. Suspected right conservatism is motivated in part by the psychological need to reduce uncertainty and threat (Wilson, 1973). Discusses three basic psychological predictors of traditionalism and acceptance of inequality: (1) the need to follow rules, (2) security needs, and (3) Openness to new experiences. The purpose of the data and results in this paper is to outline the specifics in the psychological analysis of right conservatism in Bulgaria as a representative of Eastern European post-communist countries. The survey included 374 respondents. The survey results highlight a specific picture of conservative behavior and conservative attitudes in Bulgaria. 82.30% of the respondents identified themselvesbetween center and right, contrary to the opinion spread further about our political attitudes. The described picture is most impacted by the age of the respondents, their education and activity in the conduct of elections. Severity of conservatism, as measured by the method of Wilson and Peterson, binds and is influenced by the final self placement in the political sphere, i.e.left self-identified respondents, and those on the right.
