Psychologist Jonathan Haidt studies the five moral values that form the basis of our political choices, whether we're left, right, or center. In this eye-opening talk, he pinpoints the moral values that liberals and conservatives tend to honor most. Jonathan Haidt studies how -- and why -- we evolved to be moral. By understanding more about our moral roots, his hope is that we can learn to be civil and open-minded.

I read his book “The Righteous Mind” and it’s a fantastic book. It covers all this and more in great depth. One of the most interesting books I’ve read. It even got me to realize how much we attempt to rationalize and justify everything in our life as a defense, and it helped me to stop doing that.

I assumed responsibility for an unplanned child when I was 22 years old. It was not easy. At the time I was much more liberal than I am today. Becoming a parent, and having to think of the interests of my daughter, forced me to live my way into a new way of thinking instead of thinking my way into a new way of living. Thanks for reading.

This is great. Just ordered two of his books. Wish I’d seen this a lot sooner. Much needed today in 2022

This is amazing. I felt both attacked and validated multiple times while watching this and yet I want to debate and talk more about this. I think it's inspiring me, more than most things have in a long time. I feel like I have more research to do now. Thank you.

This is brilliant! I can’t thank you enough for putting this reality out here for all to learn from and if your truly open minded, you will! ✌🏼

Wow. We need this more today than any day in US history. What a beautiful summation of what it is to be an American, I am looking at my Canadian Familia as well, and what we need to keep a healthy society in which our children can grow and prosper. Love one another people. We all bring strengths to the table. Keep the peace.

superb TED talk. As a liberal, I feel inspired to be more open-minded to conservatives.

One of the best TED Talks I've ever seen. It's like a key that we can use, if we will, to heal the rift that we've all created between ourselves as we've doubled down into tribalism and division.

I am not articulate enough to give a highly valued comment, except to say that I appreciate this message, especially now, more than ever. Bumping in hopes to bring more exposure to this message.

Excellent, Jonathan! I look forward to seeing and hearing more from you. This provides a foundation for the common understanding we need to achieve to Foster the cooperation we need, not only between "liberals" and "conservatives" (it seems to me that the "powers-that-be" use these labels or distinctions to keep us divided and conquered; I'm an interdependent myself), but between and among all individuals and groups. Let's listen to each other, and have peace and cooperation in the World - what do you think??

Excellent talk. Beware of anyone who - knowingly or unwittingly - seeks to polarise society.

I'm a big fan of Jonathan Haidt's work. To the conservatives watching this - I see lots of comments below where people have stopped watching after a few minutes but this isn't quite what you think it may be. I'd only recommend that you persevere through to about the 4m30s point if not further. He is not some trojan horse for either the insane left or insane right but rather someone who has provided insights into how people arrive at their political viewpoints and also why polarisation is getting so much worse whether it be in the US or other democracies. Well worth watching no matter what your view points are.

This is so informative and well explained, I sincerely hope to be half the professor he is one day.

as someone who is morally very conservative, I appreciate the respectful analysis of conservative thinking. Nice job!

All very useful and interesting. Just anecdotally though, I know people who are pretty left wing in their politics, but who are not especially open for the new and novel, and also conservative folk who do enjoy getting out of the familiar and trusted (myself included)

"The great conservative insight is that order is really precious. It's really hard yo achieve, and it's really easy to lose."

I agree with the concepts of balance and the issues with the righteous mind. Our main pursuit as human beings should be the truth no matter how much it may offend our own bias and political dogma. The only problem is that we now try and manipulate truth and direct narratives. A clear sign that people do not want to face the faults in their own thinking. I consider myself quite open minded yet I'm a conservative in most political situations. I try my best to challenge my own ideas about things, but am pretty pragmatic in my approach to solving problems. Utilitarianism, logic, math, science, if it all adds sort of thinking. But I have a liberal artistic side that enjoys being fascinated by novel stimulus, especially when it comes to music. Overall great Ted Talk, and then again Ted needs to do a better job sometimes at balancing their own perspectives and presenters.

This may actually be one of the best TED videos I’ve ever seen. It explains the psychology of liberalism and conservatism so well.

If you start from a place of curiosity and possibly empathy when you are in the presence of someone who has differing views, you are much more likely to be open to exploring where they got their ideas/beliefs from. Most people in a conversation are thinking about a response when they should be listening to the person speaking. It takes skill and practice, something I am certainly working on.
