Scots believe their values distinguish them from others in Britain, although most evidence suggests this claim has its limits.
On the basis of similar values, however, Scots have continually backed different options at the ballot box than voters in England and Wales.
Relying on data from the Scottish Election Study, Scottish Referendum Study and other opinion surveys,
we can identify how a subjective perception of difference helps to explain Scottish attitudes to the EU,
the reaction to the Brexit referendum and the prospects of another independence referendum.
