Yet another political quiz! (8values)
« on: August 11, 2017, 08:56:44 PM »
A newish political quiz that scores you on 4 different axes:  equality/markets, nation/world, liberty/authority, and tradition/progress.  It's a relatively short quiz (10-15 minutes) and some of the questions strike as me a bit of push polling, but all in all, pretty good.

Take the quiz here

My results:



Libertarian socialist?!  What a combo!

As defined by wiki:  "a group of anti-authoritarian political philosophies inside the socialist movement that rejects socialism as centralized state ownership and control of the economy, as well as the state itself. It is close to and overlaps with left-libertarianism" (which stresses both individual freedom and social equality)

Eh, not terribly far from the mark.  Less hammer and sickle, more gay marriage and EPA.  Not super radical, imo.

I go to take the quiz and it says it's loading (the first question, I guess), but it doesn't seem to load.  I'll try again later.

Ruh-roh. The Cultural Marxist clearly do a good job. Surprised that my progressive is only at 78%, have the feeling I will be the least progressive here (who posts).

I answered a lot of those questions with strongly agree / strongly disagree, so my score there might be slightly inflated.

I notice that our scores are otherwise very similar.  Internationism/progressivism ftw.

It still won't ask me questions.  I checked my popup blocker and it was off, but I think I may have another one working that I downloaded long ago.  I can't remember what it was or where I put it, though, and I've been on the computer so much today, that I can barely see straight, so I'm going to bag it for tonight.

And who is the fairest one of all?  Snow-Baruch ;-)

Economic - 59.1% Centrist
Diplomatic - 51.6% Moderate
Civil - 49.6% Balanced
Societal - 44.9% Neutral

I am a centrist overall.

If I knew how to capture the image and copy it here, I would.  But your results were almost identical to mine.  A Libertarian socialist, indeed!  What the hell! :))  But fairly accurate for me.

I wish there was a way to see what people polled on; would be interested to see what sets people so far apart other than the final numbers.

Economic: Socialist 76.8%
Diplomatic: Internationalist 84.6%
Civil: Libertarian 80.8%
Social: Very Progressive 86.2%

Closest Match: Libertarian Socialism

Quelle surprise! I'm in favor of human advancement, freedom, and equality for all. Down with Fascists, Commies, Republicans, and other dictatorial types!

I googled for help with the page.  This is what I got, so I'm giving up on this quiz:

I tracked this down to an incompatibility between the self-signed certificate, which was using SHA512, and TLS. Changing the certificate to use SHA256 resolved the issue. The reason for the failure on one VM vs another was a registry setting, which dictated whether or not to support SHA512. The succeeding machine supported 512.

Someone guessed earlier in the string.  If you make a lot of Hell Yes and Hell No answers ... then you will get something more interesting than Centrist.  So lets reason about it ... there are 4 categories, which can be extreme one way or another, that would make 2x2x2x2 options or 16.  And add in centrism (neutrality on all fronts).  But like any category calculator, you could probably figure out a way to confuse it, by responding in very inconsistent extremes.  Probably not all 16 are regular political categories.

Hey it took some real effort to show my results as a graph!  I want some acknowledgement for that.

Looking at the outcomes posted so far, and knowing those who managed to take the quiz, it almost seems like the quiz was designed with the ulterior motivation to show that everyone is the same, regardless of whether they consider themselves to be socialists, capitalists, theocrats, right wing, or left.  It reminds me of those Conservative Tea Party protestors holding up signs reading, "Keep Your Hands Off My Social Security."
