On personality differences between different political groupings

More for my own interests, so I can find it later when I want it:
We found that libertarians tend to look more like liberals than like conservaatives on most measures of personality. For example, both groups score higher than conservatives on openness to experience, and lower on disgust sensitivity and conscientiousness. Where libertarians diverge from liberals most sharply is on … the Care foundation, where they score very low (even lower than conservatives).
From The Righteous Mind, quote via, which has much more.

Anyone read it? I'm tempted to pick up a copy.
