  • A Psychological Profile of the Alt-Right

    August 2017

    This paper outlines the methodology and findings of a survey of individuals who are part of the "alternative right" or "alt-right" movement. The researchers surveyed 447 alt-right adherence and compared their answers to non-alt right adherence on a number of psychological measures. 

    They found "Alt-right adherents were much more distrustful of the mainstream media and government; expressed higher Dark Triad traits, social dominance orientation, and authoritarianism; reported high levels of aggression; and exhibited extreme levels of overt intergroup bias, including blatant dehumanization of racial minorities."

    The indepth analysis discovered subgroups within the "alt right" label: one more populist and anti-establishment and the other more supremacist and motivated by maintaining social hierarchy.

    While this report is dense and includes a significant amount of statistical analysis. it is an important lens into the mind of people who join the alt-right movement.
