“The results were clear and consistent,” remarks Haidt. “In all analyses, conservatives were more accurate than liberals.” Asked to think the way a liberal thinks, conservatives answered moral questions just as the liberal would answer them, but liberal students were unable to do the reverse. Rather, they seemed to put moral ideas into the mouths of conservatives that they don’t hold. To put it bluntly, Haidt and his colleagues found that progressives don’t understand conservatives the way conservatives understand progressives. This he calls the ‘conservative advantage,’ and it goes a long way in explaining the different ways each side deals with opinions unlike their own. People get angry at what they don’t understand, and an all-progressive education ensures that they don’t understand.

But it doesn't surprise me there either that liberals don't comprehend where conservatives are coming from, as well as conservatives think they understand the liberal point of view.

No they empirically proved
Conservatives are often arguing against regulations that protect the people or against the safety nets we have for the dispossessed, or otherwise at least in appearances for the benefit of the oligarchs. Sure, sometimes at least in theory, conservatives are right that these things have gone too far in the left direction, but it should come as no surprise that liberals are more likely to feel they have the moral high ground, even when they are wrong.
Proof that leftists lack empathy and understanding of the right, whereas the right DOES understand the left.
No they empirically proved that conservatives could mimic liberal responses but not vice versa. This is not about perspective, it is empirical fact.
No, an example of empirical facts would be the data that climate scientists use to draw their conclusions.
in other words the position of the left is understandable while the positions of the right aren't.
They literally don’t understand that their simpleminded world view doesn’t actually reflect reality, and thus policies enacted upon this flawed understanding ALWAYS fail! There are no exceptions, and yet leftists consistently and erroneously insist that they are always right. Morons.
