Behaviorally identified student activists involved in conservative causes (N = 24) obtained significantly (p <.001) higher (more conservative) scores (M = 110) on an updated measure of conservatism-liberalism than activists (N = 24) for liberal causes (M = 55). Other results are reported which indicate that these conservatism-liberalism items show promise for reliably and meaningfully measuring a general ideological dimension.
