Score of 4 to 6: You are a Meta-Level Thinker. You decide difficult cases by trying to find general principles that can be applied evenhandedly regardless of which side you like or dislike.

This was really cool, I've never seen a quiz like this.

Cool test. I kinda figured out what the purpose was on the start of the second set of questions.

I got 5 out of 6: You are a Meta-Level Thinker. You decide difficult cases by trying to find general principles that can be applied evenhandedly regardless of which side you like or dislike.

I got a 6 of 6.

But I think I figured the intent of the test almost immediately. I still tried my best to answer truthfully.

I've always hated tests like this.
Like with the first question, I want to tell them to stay off the street and only arrest those who don't. Nothing that necessitates breaking up the rally, but they are not free to impede on others (blocking traffic).

How do I answer that?
My work here is, finally, done.

Idk. I just picked whichever one would keep them off the street and out of the way of traffic. I didn't like either option, but then again, shouldn't someone leading this group remind people to obey the laws about staying off the street so they can hold their demonstration? For laws to work (and ambulances, fire trucks, angry commuters, etc. to get where they need to be), they need to be enforced. The quiz just doesn't offer a fair way to do that.

Plus, it is also assumed they have no permit...
But, I over-analyze every personality test like this.
It's quite annoying, really. Too many variables to me.

A third of the questions were no win. I would not have chosen either option.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

This, basically. It was obvious what the test was going for right from the start too, but you just couldn't call most of the questions from the comfort of your living room.
