    Highest ranking dimension: Individualist

    You believe in the right of an individual to "be themself" in thought and deeds. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a politician with the nerve to tell people when it comes to controlling others, they should mind their own business. This may be because you enjoy a diversity of experiences and don ’t get offended easily. It may also be because you’ve seen people be persecuted. Others may disagree with you because they feel a right to protect what they see as community values. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they underestimate people’s need for sta bility and safety.
    Second highest ranking dimension: Democratic

    You believe in the principles of democracy - that too much control by too few is a dangerous proposition You may have felt that what the country really needs is to open the corridors of power and let more "real people" inside. This may be because you have seen people treated unfairly, seen self interest take over people ’s judgment and wish that political leaders would lead by following the people’s wishes. It may also be because you see that the people who tend to get elected don’t represent the diversity of viewpoints and cultures that exist in the population. Others may disagree with you because they are impatient to see politicians "do something", and possibly because they are less inclined to do their own thinking about the issues. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because in an attempt to please everybody, they please nobody.
    Combined statement:

    Based on your answers, the ideal state, in your opinion, is one where people are free to be themselves.

    those preferences are contradictory to me.

    can you explain what/whom you mean by "us" and "them"?

    Interesting... am I the only person who scored both collectivist and narrow-focused (DBCLN)? Seems the individualists and the globalists have quite the monopoly on this board.

    Highest-ranking dimension: Democratic

    Second-highest ranking dimension: Small-government

    Anti-nationalist

    This test doesn't seem to account for civic nationalism, and seems to equate strong support for federalism with opposition to (civic) nationalism. Also, I'm a big fan of gradualism, in general. Still, I've seen worse tests, that retarded tree question notwithstanding.

    I had to skip the question concerning whether granting some rights necessitated taking away other rights, as that question failed to distinguish between so-called positive and negative rights.
