UC Irvine Professor Peter Ditto studies human judgment and decision-making. Ditto is fascinated by biases and "motivated reasoning," where people's beliefs and morals influence their interpretation of facts. 

Ditto started in health psychology but soon found an even richer trove of human biases: American politics, where liberals and conservatives seem to operate on completely different sets of facts. 

Ditto's research finds that liberals and conservatives are easy to characterize based on their moral beliefs, but where do libertarians fit in?
