    Social Attitude Test

    My Results:

    Radicalism 77.5
    Socialism 31.25
    Tenderness 50


    These scores indicate that you are a moderate 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 capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as libertarian.

    To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, an egalitarian with few strong opinions.

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

    I found this interesting, though many of the statements were quite flawed: heavily loaded, ambiguous, or dated. I mean, "'free enterprise' is another way of saying 'exploitation of the workers'" and "young men with long hair" -- seriously? Or loaded terms such as "flip-flopped" (32) and "exploitation of the workers" (4) -- are you supposed to respond to the substance or to way in which those terms are currently used & abused by the media?

    Regardless, though, I'd probably agree more-or-less with the "results" (tho I tend to see myself as somewhat less radical and more socialist -- and I'm a little fuzzy on the meaning of the "tenderness" quotient!).

    well its about time we had a quiz!

    This seems more political than social to me. Hmm I guess I didn't copy the numbers.

    I'm not getting what they mean by radicalism anyway.

    I'm a University Professor, neither capitalist nor socialist, an egalitarian with ahem several strong opinions!

    Radicalism 94
    Socialism 31.25
    Tenderness 46.875

    I would posit that I'm a lot more radical than Kasey and substantially less "tender"!

    ETA: Ah, just noticed a difference, I am a centrist with SEVERAL strong opinions.

    I feel better. :p

    "To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, an idealist with few strong opinions."

    This summation made me roar with laughter - as would anyone who knows me. Idealist, definitely, but few strong opinions? I don't think so.

    A lot of the statements were very poorly worded.

    My results were similar to several others here:

    I would disagree that I'm skeptical towards religion, and I think that result has more to do with the way the questions were phrased. I would consider myself accepting of all religions, and think people have the right to subscribe to whatever faith they choose. I think where the discrepancy arises in the quiz is because while I think people have that right, I don't personally have a "blind faith," so to speak, and seek a balance (and some overlap) between science and spirituality.

    If I had taken this test 10 years ago, I guarantee it would have said I have ONLY strong opinions. :D
