    Default Political Types

    This was fairly popular on Personality Nation, so I thought I'd share it here and let everyone know about (for those don't already know of it):

    Explanations

    Diplomatic: This deals with international relations. Diplomatic types favor cooperation, diplomacy, and interconnectivity with other nations. They’re often more internationally-minded. People of this type can range from those who simply want to maintain international alliances and cooperation to those who truly want a more united world with less (or no) focus on boundaries.
    Unengaged: This deals with international relations. Unengaged types favor more autonomy as a country, less focus on international relations, and minimizing outer ties and obligations. People of this type can range from those who simply want to minimize their country’s dependence on others to those who truly want to stay separate from the rest of the world with nearly pure self-focus.
    Hands-On: This deals with economic issues. Hands-On types favor either government intervention/regulation in the economy or, on the extreme end, government control of the economy. People of this type can range from those who simply want to regulate big business in a liberal capitalism sort of way, as well as cater to the needy, to those who support a genuinely socialist sort of economy.
    Laissez-Faire: This deals with economic issues. Laissez-Faire types favor the minimization of government intervention in the economy. People of this type can range from those who prefer the minimization of government spending and taxes to those who would rather the government simply steer clear of providing services in the realm of money and business, and everything left in private hands.
    Individualistic: This deals with social issues. Individualistic types favor minimal government regulation and authority in terms of peoples’ actions, determining right and wrong, and maintaining safety and security. People of this type can range from those who think social regulation should be left on smaller scales to those who think the government should stay entirely out of personal matters.
    Conventional: This deals with social issues. Conventional types favor at least some government regulation and authority in terms of peoples’ actions and determining right and wrong. People of this type can range from those who think some issues require government regulation for safety and the good of society to those who think it ought to be up to the government to regulate right and wrong and take any necessary measures to keep its people safe.
    Militaristic: This deals with military intervention. Militaristic types favor a more aggressive approach to dealing with the rest of the world and likely a larger military. People of this type can range from those who think the military ought to be there to help other countries and causes when needed to those who want an actively aggressive military that wages wars when deemed appropriate.
    Passive: This deals with military intervention. Passive types favor a less active approach to dealing with the rest of the world and likely a smaller military. People of this type can range from those who think it’s best to keep the military out of pursuing causes and getting involved in the matters of others to those who think wars should be defensive alone, or even those who disapprove of the use of force entirely (or at least think it ought to be reserved until there is no other option).

    Activist: This deals with foreign policy. Activist types are both Diplomatic and Militaristic. They favor an active stance in the world, both in peaceful and forceful relations. People of this type think the best approach to dealing with the rest of the world is to be as involved as possible, although this often means promoting the country’s values on a world scale as opposed to uniting the world’s cultures. This can range from those who want to promote a more generally global-thinking world to those who would use any means necessary to spread their causes. Think modern-day America.
    Interventionist: This deals with foreign policy. Interventionist types are both Unengaged and Militaristic. They favor a more detached yet forceful stance in the world. People of this type think the best approach to dealing with the rest of the world is to remain independent while using force when necessary. This can range from those who want to stay relatively isolated but still fight when needed to those who would prefer for the country to pursue its own causes throughout the world without necessarily preserving outside cultures. Think Imperialist-era England or Spain.
    Internationalist: This deals with foreign policy. Internationalist types are both Diplomatic and Passive. They favor a more involved yet decidedly peaceful stance in the world. People of this type think the best approach to dealing with the rest of the world is to focus on cooperation and diplomacy. This can range from those who value varying cultures and pacifism as well as recognize a need for global collaboration to those who would have a united global community. Think Canada or the smaller countries of Europe.
    Isolationist: This deals with foreign policy. Isolationist types are both Unengaged and Passive. They favor a detached stance in the world in all respects. People of this type think the best approach to dealing with the rest of the world is to focus internally and avoid getting caught up in outside concerns. This can range from those who think it’s best to first solve the country’s internal issues before worrying about anything outside as well as minimizing unnecessary external obligations to those who would rather avoid dealing with non-domestic obligations altogether. Think Switzerland.

    Liberal: This deals with domestic policy. Liberal types are both Hands-On and Individualistic. They favor a true mix of self-rule and governmental regulation, namely the freedom to make social and personal decisions but the help of the government in economic matters. People of this type can range from those who would prefer a regulated capitalist republic to those who would prefer a true socialist republic. Think social democracy or democratic socialism (i.e. most European countries) on the extreme end, or the American Democratic Party on the less extreme end.
    Statist: This deals with domestic policy. Statist types are both Hands-On and Conventional. They favor an overall powerful government, from regulating individual actions to helping in economic matters. People of this type can range from those who think the government should get involved whenever there are problems to those who trust the government over the individual to make the right decisions and maintain order. Note that most Statists will be weak Statists and won’t necessarily be communists or anything remotely similar; modern-day America could be argued as having moderate Statist leanings. Think communism or fascism on the most extreme end (i.e. China or North Korea), or most politicians on the less extreme end.
    Libertarian: This deals with domestic policy. Libertarian types are both Laissez-Faire and Individualistic. They favor an overall smaller government, largely avoiding regulation of both individual actions and the economy. People of this type can range from those who prefer minimal regulation that remains on a smaller scale to true anarchists who trust the individual over the government. Think early America on the less extreme end, and anarchy or anarcho-capitalism on the more extreme end.
    Conservative: This deals with domestic policy. Conservative types are both Laissez-Faire and Conventional. They favor a true mix of self-rule and governmental regulation, namely a free market but the regulation of the government in individual actions. People of this type can range from those who prefer a largely free market with government intervention on important social issues to those who would have the government minimize any economic actions while having authority over right and wrong. Think theocracy on the extreme end, or the American Republican Party on the less extreme end.

    Internationalist Liberal

    I found some of the descriptions a bit weird, especially the country examples.

    I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas;
    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    I'd be either DHIP or UHIP. Very strong on Individualism, more moderate on hands-on and passive.

    So that is the one defining idea that I share with libertarians.
