The present study investigates the role of motivated cognition (need for cognitive closure), the type of personal worldviews (traditional, modern, postmodern) and political involvement in shaping political preferences among Polish subjects. The results indicate that the high need for closure is positively associated with support for traditional and modern worldview. Support for the traditional worldview is related to preference for rightist arrangement in social domain and socialist arrangements in economics. Additionally, among politically involved subjects, support for the modern worldview is related to preference for leftist arrangement in social domain and free market, capitalist economy (liberalism).
