Rick Santorum

Summary: A psychological analysis of former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, conducted in spring 2012 by Beth Peichel, Amanda Nusbaum, Feiran Chen, Sara Duxbury, Wade Kohls, Rachel Heying, and Aubrey Immelman, Ph.D., at the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics revealed that Santorum’s primary personality pattern is Conscientious/dutiful, with secondary features of the Dominant/controlling and Ambitious/confident patterns — a personality pattern very similar to that of likely Republican nominee in the 2012 U.S. presidential election, Mitt Romney.
