另外,左翼威权主义相关等特征,开放的态度面对改变和利他主义(White-Ajmani & Bursik,2011;希比格zettl &,2010)。然而,很少有研究证明负面特质在左翼的独裁政权,比如攻击性向外群体,刚度和社会赞许性(格林伯格&乔纳斯,2003;利伯曼,所罗门,格林伯格,&麦格雷戈,1999;Verhulst,Hatemi,&马丁,2010)。结果,继续存在模糊性在文献中关于独裁主义和精神病理学之间的联系。此外,研究还没有调查认知扭曲在独裁政权的关系。结果,本研究打算检查如果扭曲的认知和愤怒与威权主义,特别是左翼。此外,据预测,认知扭曲和愤怒将与专制,因为认知扭曲与愤怒,愤怒与专制。
Alternatively, left-wing authoritarianism has been correlated with traits such as, openness to change and altruism (White-Ajmani & Bursik, 2011; Zettler & Hilbig, 2010). However, a few studies have demonstrated negative traits among left-wing authoritarians, such as aggressiveness toward the out-group, rigidity, and social desirability (Greenberg & Jonas, 2003; Lieberman, Solomon, Greenberg, & McGregor, 1999; Verhulst, Hatemi, & Martin, 2010). As a result, ambiguity continues to exist in the literature regarding the association among authoritarianism and psychopathology. Additionally, studies have yet to investigate the relationship of cognitive distortions among authoritarians. As a result, this study intends to examine if distorted cognitions and anger are related to authoritarianism, specifically right and left-wing. Furthermore, it is predicted that cognitive distortions and anger will relate to authoritarianism, because cognitive distortions are associated with anger, and anger is related to authoritarianism.
