I am often skeptical of Political Philosophy tests. I took this, however, and was actually surprised with how accurate it was:

http://slackhalla.org...

"Progressivism 0
Socialism 0
Tenderness 56.25

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-conservative; this is the political profile one might associate with a police officer. It appears that you are accepting of religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a paleoconservative.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a cold-hearted radical hereditarian with a firmly established worldview.
"

I found this to be incredibly accurate. This sums up most of my philosophical views pretty well. Some of the questions had poor wording, but if you get past these, the test is, overall, quite decent.

What are your results?

Um.

Progressivism62.5
Socialism37.5
Tenderness50

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a jaded materialist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.

Wut.

I didn't exactly fully understand some of the questions that I answered... I think this may be slightly flawed.

Progressivism 60
Socialism 87.5
Tenderness 46.875

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded cultural centrist; this is the political profile one might associate with a jaded materialist. It appears that you are tolerant towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a humanist.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a considerate principled centrist with few strong convictions.

Wut.

I didn't exactly fully understand some of the questions that I answered... I think this may be slightly flawed.

Which questions did you not understand?

(1.) I answered in the sense that one doesn't need a ticket to travel, but is the context that if you must have a ticket then would it be okay to travel without one if you can get away with it?

(6.) I didn't misunderstand the meaning, but I didn't understand why they would be responsible for economic difficulties.

(9.) What does it mean by "sexually suited?"

(16.) In what context? Like give an example.

(34.) What does it mean by "skin deep?"

(35.) Define "old days"

That's all.

The context is, say, you're boarding a train. The train doesn't check your ticket before you board, but it's illegal to board without one. (Most such trains, and some buses that work similarly have periodic checks-- every 10 trips or so a guy might check midtrip, and fine you if you don't have one. They do this because you enter through multiple doors and it would cost too much to post a guard at every door).

(6.) I didn't misunderstand the meaning, but I didn't understand why they would be responsible for economic difficulties.
The concept that, say, "Wall street greedy speculators caused the recession."


(9.) What does it mean by "sexually suited?"
the question is an old fashioned one. A lot of them are. Imagine the statement to be "Premarital sex is morally acceptable."


(16.) In what context? Like give an example.
Those damned kids always doing drugs and having unmarried sex. Get off my lawn! (They're not actually on your lawn.).
Imagine the statement to be "We should all abide by the moral code of 1950s television."


(34.) What does it mean by "skin deep?"
You meet someone. To the extent you ever care what race they are, put "agree."


(35.) Define "old days"
1950s.

Social Attitude Test

Political Values

Progressivism 87.5

Tenderness 56.25

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a pragmatic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a uncompromising idealistic egalitarian with few strong convictions.

In my opinion your result would be more representative of Americans while mine would be more representative of the average Canadian. In general only and not totally true I think Donald. But I also think that the intent of each of the questions is too easy to interpret and that makes it a pretty useless test overall. By that I mean, it enables one to determine the outcome rather than being a true outcome. The questions are loaded.

We should be wary of any efforts to improve human nature.
Wouldn't that depend on the effort? Anyone who says yes or no to this question needs a lesson in Generalization.

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear communist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a cultural marxist.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.


Weird, I did this test only recently and scored hugely higher in tenderness. I've hardened considerably in a very short time, it seems.

I'm just not sure what this means:
"1) There is no harm in traveling occasionally without a ticket if you can get away with it."
It's my last question. What kind of ticket is the question referring to? I'm assuming traveling without a ticket is illegal by the phrasing of the question, but I only know tickets as things to get into places like concerts and airplanes or things you get for violating vehicle laws. The former would be irrelevant and the latter would be a good thing.

I've never had to take a train and I didn't look through the comments, but I found out what the question meant after searching it online for a minute or two.

Anyway, here's what I got:

Progressivism 77.5
Socialism 56.25
Tenderness 40.625

Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a pragmatic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a progressive.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a sensible realistic centrist with few strong convictions.

Well, before seeing your post, I hadn't realized by "centrist" they meant centered on the egalitarian versus (insert whatever word they want to use for the opposite. Hierarchical?) scale.

The "uncompromising radical" is probably just because I hit "strongly" a lot.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.
