Paper: "The Psychological Dispositions of Self-Identified Libertarians"
I was watching a documentary last night, reporting on recent work about the risk-processing strategies of "liberals" in today's society as opposed to people of a more conservative bent. Apparently, the part of the brain most involved in deciding whether to take a risk is different between the two groups.

Of course, it's an open question whether political leanings partly determine brain structure, or vice versa, or the effects are both ways.

I suspect something like this would apply to most biological sophonts, at least those from a Terran background. After all, humans share a lot of brain structure with all the other mammals - at least. Of course, xenos would probably be different and vecs/AIs almost certainly would - in this respect as in many others.
