This article intends to carry out a sociological study on the political tendencies of Iranian political activists and elits. This article is the outcome of a scientific research carried out among Iranian political activist and through a survey method. The attempt has been made to explain the social bases of their tendencies to one of the two dominant political wings. The theoretical framework of this article is formed using several sociological theories. A political tendency is taken as the dependent variable, and political socialization, social status, and political experiences as the independent variables. The outcomes shows that political orientation of people to one of two dominant political wings is statistically most related to political socialization and least related to social status. In the other words, social status known in social stratification does not signify the political tendencies of conservatives and reformists rather it is their political socialization that mostly counts for their political tendencies. The results show that the existing dichotomy between two wings is considered as natural and there is no place for being concerned and worried.
