Moral Attitudes
Based on your answers to the previous questions, your overall score on a conservative/liberal dimension of moral attitudes--compared with the general population--puts your percentile at 75, with the 99th percentile indicating the most liberal possible rating. Another way of explaining this is to say that out of 100 randomly-selected people, you will most likely be more liberal than 75 of them.

You tend to hold progressive/liberal values, but are more traditional on some aspects.
When it comes to social morals, you feel that society's current laws need to be more liberal and flexibile across the board.
You believe that the government is too conservative and do not agree with many of the current practices and policies.

Personality Suvery Results
There has been much research on how people describe others, and five major dimensions of human personality have been found. They are often referred to as the OCEAN model of personality, because of the acronym from the names of the five dimensions. Your specific personality indicates that the following attributes will most likely describe you well:

You are somewhat conventional.
You are well-organized, and are reliable.
You are neither particularly social or reserved.
You find it easy to criticize others.
You are generally relaxed.

* You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone.
* You tend to consider the feelings of others.
* You aren't particularly nervous, nor calm.

Check. They got me too. Spooky isn't it?

Not really, no. They ask you quite directly for the answers you get in the end. Anyone can conclude I'm likely to have a messy desk when I say I tend to be quite disorganised. Given my dislike for work, a more clever person would have concluded I may well not have a desk at all.

I got 81% USA liberal. It might be interesting to compare that result to a similar test with a European basis.

Oh, I know really. I've taken much scarier, proper psychometric tests during job interviews. Those things actually are spooky.

I still find it a bit creepy when a machine clocks you from a few binary input choices, though; however easy it is to program it is, there's something innately unsettling about it. Probably just me.

This entire thing is ********.

Firstly, there are alternatives to being either a Liberal or a conservative, all the questions seemed aimed at an exclusively American audience and mindset.

They said I was a Liberal, I'm not a f###ing liberal! I'M A REVOLUTIONARY MARXIST! I HATE F###ING LIBERALS!

"Liberal" is the most abused term in the lexicon of modern political discourse anyway. Liberalism means, Free Trade, Individual Property ownership, Capitalism. Neo-Liberalism is the agressive pursuit of the above. Reagan, the bush gang, The Clintons, Blair and Howard the IMF and World bank are all Neo. Almost all the major world leaders in the West since the middle of the last century (and China since Deng Xioping) are liberals of one shade or another. (Which is why the ground between the 2 main parties in Britain and the US has been narrowing so much).

Political outlook isn't a one way street with Liberal at one end and conservative at the other, these are just points on a huge compass that has Socialism, Fascism, Anarchism and rule by right of conquest on it as well.

I'm not convinced. I believe in a totalitarian government that works for the actual best of the world. Maybe 10-20 people, with no more benefits than anyone else. No one would have higher material standard than the next one, and all real estate would be owned by the government.
Truth to be told, darwinism works too slow for humanity's good, and our society protect the stupid, hence everyone can't decide. No arguments. Keep this on topic. We could argue once/if the PnR forums open again.

Where do I become 72% liberal?

Folks, liberalism is not simply a word to describe your political or economical viewpoint. It also appplies to how you live your life, and how you view society is a whole. Liberal, to me, really just means relaxed and open. So you can be economically conservative, while being socially liberal, which would skew your test results.

Anyway, here's me:

* You are somewhat conventional.
* You are well-organized, and are reliable.
* You are neither particularly social or reserved.
* You find it easy to express irritation with others.
* You probably remain calm, even in tense situations.
* Your values are neither extremely traditional nor particularly progressive.
* When it comes to social morals, you feel that society's current laws need to be more liberal and flexibile across the board.
* You believe that the government's current positions are generally balanced and fair, but disagree with a few of its practices.

I don't think the test really shows anything, mainly because of its ambiguity. On what basis are they making the moral judgement calls? American? Thats way different to the social mores of Australian society (despite what people,including we Australians claim). Not only that but rather than give defined responses, they ask for it on a scale, which is wholly inaccurate as people are going to scale their responses differently, what I define as a four on the question of abortion, someone else might rate as a 5 or a 3. So according to an American mindset:

*Your values are neither extremely traditional nor particularly progressive.
*When it comes to social morals, you feel that society's current laws need to be more liberal and flexibile across the board.
*You believe that the government's current positions are generally balanced and fair, but disagree with a few of its practices.
*You are relatively open to new experiences.
*You tend to do things somewhat haphazardly.
*You probably enjoy spending quiet time alone.
*You find it easy to criticize others.
*You aren't particularly nervous, nor calm.

Agreed, I got 3/4 the way through and decided it was a complete waste of time to complete it.

There were no options to indicate a distaste for capatalist 'government', nor 'civilisation' in general and as such it could not hope to classify me.

Well, the test seemed very US centered to me. While the personality scores actually gave quite an ok expression of me, the moral attitudes results seemed more or less screwed up.

* Your values are neither extremely traditional nor particularly progressive.
- In reality they are extremely traditional except in a few cases where they are so traditional that most people would consider them extremely controversial.
* When it comes to social morals, you feel that society's current laws need to be more flexible in some areas.
- I believe they need to be much more stringent in most areas.
* You believe that the government's current positions are generally balanced and fair, but disagree with a few of its practices.
- I believe the current government needs to be overthrown, at all costs, with bloodshed if neccesary, and society needs to be reconstructed from the ground.

By “moral” we mean those aspects of thought and behavior that relate to commonly accepted notions of right and wrong, and to selfish and unselfish actions. One need not be religious to be “moral,” although religions do tend to espouse moral codes of behavior. We have broken down your results into two sub-categories: political/economic morals and social morals.



Based on your answers to the previous questions, your overall score on a conservative/liberal dimension of moral attitudes--compared with the general population--puts your percentile at 44, with the 99th percentile indicating the most liberal possible rating. Another way of explaining this is to say that out of 100 randomly-selected people, you will most likely be more liberal than 44 of them.

Your values are neither extremely traditional nor particularly progressive.
When it comes to social morals, you feel that society's current laws need to be more flexible in some areas.
You believe that the government's current positions are generally balanced and fair, but disagree with a few of its programs.

I thought the questions were pretty good... considering most of the issues that matter in the US have some dichotomy over here in Aus.... but when it spat out the answers, absolutely pathetic :p

I think Im just a bit too weird for these things though, but 70th percentile liberal could well be about right.... I like change, but Im a bit of a conservative.... which makes no sense at all :D

I like how they equate religous behaviour with morality, surely discrimination and baseless hatred is immoral? In any case, surely the test is pointless, as most people can tell whether or not they are liberal or conservative by themselves, it's not going to have any impact, just gives people a sense of validation (that an internet test shouldn't really impart). 84% liberal, 16% conservative, 100% sure they're going to sell that information to sociology students.
