    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 laissez-faire 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, a pragmatist with several strong opinions.

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

    Unlike many other political tests found on the Internet which base themselves on untested (and usually ideologically motivated) ideas, this inventory is adapted from Hans Eysenck's own political inventory which was developed after extensive empirical investigations in the 20th Century.
    As expected. What's with the tenderness category?

    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.

    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.

    These scores indicate that you are a moderate (I'm shocked! Shocked, I tell you!); this is the political profile one might associate with a regular person (I'm so very average. ). It appears that you are moderate towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

    Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as libertarian. (Another shocker!)

    To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, an egalitarian with few strong opinions. (Eh, I used to have more opinions, but the system ground me down. )
    Nope. I got zero too.

    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.

    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.

    Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire 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 idealist with several strong opinions.

    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.

    Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as right-wing.

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