According to this I'm a "Socialist Anti-Government Interventionist Bleeding-Heart Progressive":

Collectivism score: 67%
Authoritarianism score: -17%
Internationalism score: 33%
Tribalism score: -100%
Liberalism score: 50%

I found the 5 dimensions approach interesting, but the labels are terrible, in the internationalism related questions, I supported multilateral and peaceful actions, but opposed interventionism, but I was still labeled "Interventionist". Apparently, you are labeled "Interventionist" if your internationalism score is between 0% and 50% (independently of the answers) and "Multilateralist" if it's higher, which means that the quiz don't consider the possibility of someone being multilateralist if they aren't interventionist first (which is kind of disturbing, do Americans really treaty international politics this way?). Also, the term "Bleeding-Heart" is somewhat derogatory and has nothing to do with a lack of "Tribalism" (Which I guess is related to a sense of racial or national superiority).

That link sends me to the first page of the test, not to the results.
You should post your results like I did.

Lol some of these were really dumb.

"Euthanasia, abortion and suicide should all be legal"

Suicide illegal? Good luck on imposing punishment on whomever commits suicide haha.

"We should just nuke our enemies, it's a waste of time to try and deal with them"

You might be a redneck if...

I interpreted it as meaning assisted suicide, which is not very different from euthanasia, but yeah, this is a silly test, the idea behind it is interesting, but it could have been done better.
