5-dimensional political test

Recommended Posts

So I came across this neat little test on the Internet. It's only 30 questions and it places you on 5 different political axes. Having argued so much about politics with a lot of members on this forum, it would be interesting to see how our results on this little test compare to each other.

 

Here is the link: http://www.abtirsi.com/quiz2.php

 

And my results:

 

Collectivism score: 0%
Authoritarianism score: 0%
Internationalism score: 100%
Tribalism score: -100%
Liberalism score: 67%

 

"Authoritarianism" in this test means how much power you think the state should have over the individual, while "Liberalism" is how culturally liberal/progressive you are. "Tribalism" is essentially nationalism, while "Internationalism" is interventionism. I was surprised I got so high a score on that one.

 

What does your say? Post your results!

 

(Yeah, 30 questions is a bit on the small side for this type of test. The margin of error is pretty big. Especially the "collectivism" questions I think are very vague and dependent on context. I get a score between -17% and 50% when I vary my answers within what I think is reasonable)

И погибе Српски кнез Лазаре,
И његова сва изгибе војска, 
Седамдесет и седам иљада;
Све је свето и честито било
И миломе Богу приступачно.

I am a "Socialist Anti-Government World-Federalist Humanist Libertine". I almost feel as if it's a collection of contradictions, provided you eliminated the "fascist nationalist" side of the scale reserved for the mentally ill. In hindsight, I went a little too "and the kitchen sink" on some answers where "maybe" would have sufficed. That said, my political thought role models being Thomas Paine and Christopher Hitchens, that kind of seems on the mark.

Well, as Gorgon put it, there are a lot of questions where yes or no make poor answers. There is a lot of "It depends" in those questions.

 

I like this survey better:http://www.isidewith.com/ if you click "choose another stance" they give you all the "it depends" options and does a fair job of tallying them. The only problem is it is very US centric so the folks in Europe might not find it that interesting.

Isn't Socialist and Anti-Government a contradiction?

Not always. The are libertarian socialists that don't like the government.
