It's a pretty interesting quiz, actually, that I would say was almost correct for me: it said I was 76% liberal and 24% conservative. I question some of the criteria they used, but it's interesting nevertheless. I'd love to get some thoughts on it.

You're 74% conservative, 26% liberal.

Pretty on-the-money.

Didn't ask me anything about how racist I am, so I was a little disappointed. But none the less, since I'm a Conservative, I'm fairly racist by default... right jifpop?

"You're 22% conservative, 78% liberal."

Yeah sure okay.

According to the survey I'm 73% conservative, 27% liberal!

ROFL!

(The quiz was ridiculous. How can it determine my political leanings simply from receiving answers about my personal preferences on unrelated stuff?)

This survey is irrational, unscientific.

If a survey wants to determine my political leanings, it should ask me questions about my political beliefs.

I won't bother, a test can't be devised that will work for Americans and the rest of the world's people at the same time. In America,, Attila the Hun would be considered a liberal. And most of them don't understand that Hitler and Bush2 were extreme rightists.

lol, this is hilarious...

IT says I'm 74% conservative, but 26% liberal.

Liberal Qualities:
You prefer documentaries over action movies (Action movies bore me.)
You like fusion cuisine (duh...)
You think it's okay for your partner to look at porn alone (Yup.)
You use a modern browser (Indeed I do.)

Conservative Qualities:

You like dogs more than cats (And this makes me conservative... how?)
You think kids should respect authority (I only slightly agreed to that.)
You like a neat desk (How the hell does that make me politically conservative?)
You think self-control trumps self-expression (I only slightly agreed with that.)
You think the government should treat the lives of its citizens as much more valuable than those of other countries (I only slightly agreed with that.)
You think the world benefits from nations and borders (That's about the tension between cosmopolitanism and isolationism, not liberalism and conservatism.)
You prefer Times Square to the Met (I would have preferred MoMA to Times' Square... because I've been to the Met.)
You're proud of your country's history (Patriotism is illiberal? Hogwash.)

And yet, I'm very liberal...

75% Liberal to 25% Conservative. Seems about right.

The questions? Cat or dog?

It could measure Americans on a scale that would only apply to Americans. But once again, the scale only measures the degree of conservatism and doesn't take into account what makes a person a liberal or a socially responsible capitalist.

I can see how it would work for Nazi Germany in the 1930's. If you prefer a dog then you aren't conservative enough.

I was ranked 82% Conservative, 18% liberal...

Total opposite of my ideology in reality. Very amusing results.

The answers were self explanatory... If you wanted to, you could change your answers to make it so that you were more liberal or more conservative. It was all just basically common sense.
