    These scores indicate that you are a 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 a political centrist.

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

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

    The description is actually bull's eye for me ( not an academic myself, but surrounded by them , and certainly share the thinking). Maybe not so capitalist, either, but their demand that I put it in terms of "evil" has left me rejecting the wording. They have generalized questions sometimes and I would put answers as " neutral" when the questions were just too complex ( even with the simple ones, heart or mind- unnecessary division. Both is the choice, depending on the situation). But a fun test! I wonder what makes me an idealist vs an egalitarian, I'm game for both.

    :lol: I thought the same, and I got almost the same results, with one major difference:

    These scores indicate that you are a 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 neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a political centrist.

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


    Ha! But I couldn't really agree or disagree with a lot of the statements.

    These scores indicate that you are a tender-minded moderate; this is the political profile one might associate with a protective parent. It appears that you are accepting of religion, and have a generally optimistic attitude towards humanity in general.

    Surprising results. I would have expected higher socialism and lower tenderness. No, I'm not libertarian.

    These scores indicate that you are a very tough-minded moderate conservative; this is the political profile one might associate with a drill sergeant. It appears that you are moderate towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

    That's the one I was talking about. I've had enough battles around the dinner table from childhood. Don't need you two going at it and bringing back all those memories! :p
