Two U.S. psychologists interviewed nearly 450 people who say they identify with the so-called "alt-right" to try to delve into their mindset.

What they found was a group of people who reported high levels of aggression; exhibited extreme levels of bias to others who are not white or male, and blatantly dehumanized racial minorities.

Members of the alt-right — a loose collection of far-right political groups that include white nationalists, and neo-Nazis — descended on Charlottesville, Va. last weekend carrying torches, giving Nazi salutes, and chanting "Jews will not replace us!" Violence ultimately exploded in the streets and led to a white supremacist plowing a car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing one woman.
