    The Expatriate

    Achtung! You are 23% brainwashworthy, 18% antitolerant, and 19% blindly patriotic

    The idea of the test is very interesting, but it is so poorly done it makes my stomach turn. The questions are mostly fuzzy, the answers do not offer enough variety (i.e. oversimplification) and the whole test would be extremely easy to manipulate. More precise and detailed questions and more differentiated answers
    On top of that the strong anti-German sentiment of the author (and I mean anti-German, not anti-Nazi, since the references to Wiener Schnitzel -an Austrian specialty with possibly Northern Italian roots- and the gratuitous use of cliche Hollywood nazi/German terminology have nothing to do with the content of the test) works against him imho. A half-assed test written by a well meaning but probably underinformed author about a very interesting and relevant question. What a pity, I´m a bit disappointed. This could have been so much better with just a little more effort put into it.

    Achtung! You are 0% brainwashworthy, 64% antitolerant, and 0% blindly patriotic

    Sie sind ein Schwein! You would've lived a quiet and consenting civilian life in Germany, while the Nazis stomped all over people you didn't quite care about.

    You would never have directly joined the Nazis, basically because (1) you're not so nationalistic, (2) you're not that susceptible to crazy propaganda, and (3) you probably don't have the bloodlust. But you would've appreciated the Party, because you liked how they cleaned out the [insert race you dislike here].

    The fact is, you demonstrate too much attachment to and pride of your own kind, be they white & male & straight or whatever. You absolutely would not have stood up to the Germans.

    Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would NOT have STOOD UP to the Nazis. Sorry





    I think that the guy got it wrong. I simply dislike majority of people, Nazi or not Nazi.

    The Expatriate
    Achtung! You are 38% brainwashworthy, 18% antitolerant, and 5% blindly patriotic

    Congratulations! You are not susceptible to brainwashing, your values and cares extend beyond the borders of your own country, and your Blind Patriotism does not reach unhealthy levels. If you had been German in the 30s, you would've left the country.

    One bad scenario -- as I hypothetically project you back in time -- is that you just wouldn't have cared one way or the other about Nazism. Maybe politics don't interest you enough. But the fact that you took this test means they probably do. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt.

    Did you know that many of the smartest Germans departed prior to the beginning of World War II, because they knew some evil shit was brewing? Brain Drain. Many of them were scientists. It is very possible you could have been one of them.

    Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would not have been a Nazi.

    Der Kommandant

    Achtung! You are 31% brainwashworthy, 91% antitolerant, and 67% blindly patriotic
    Opportunistic, patriotic to a fault, and not so fond of people who aren't just like you, you are like a Nazi General. Back in Germany in the 1940's, you would have been at the top of the asshole list. Not for Nazism, necessarily, but for your own sick, twisted values. Then, out of superior intelligence (relative to other Nazis, that is), you would've climbed to the top.

    Conclusion: you would have been a Nazi, and most likely would have served them well.

    I like to think no, I wouldn't have been, but statistically, I probably would have been, or at least complicit.

    Same for me. Maybe if you know > 1 language, it makes you more likely to leave the country, since presumably you speak the language in at least a few other places.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    The author might also have assumed that having become fluent in another language is a sign of being very open to and interested in the world outside your own country and thus more mentally mobile and likely to even consider emigration. These days in many European countries you can't graduate from highschool without having studied at least two foreign languages though, so it's nothing special and not necessarily a sign of being more mobile and culture smart than average.

    As I said, the idea is interesting, but the test is very badly written.

    The Resistance
    Welcome to the Resistance (Der Widerstand)! You believe in freedom, justice, equality, and your country, and you can't be converted to the the dark side.

    Breakdown: your Blind Patriotism levels are borderline unhealthy, but you show such a love of people from everywhere and a natural resistance to brainwashing, you would probably focus your energy to fight the Fuehrer with furor, so to speak.

    Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would have taken up ARMS against the oppressors. Or even your friends' oppressors. Congratulations!
