    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.
    Second highest ranking dimension: Wide Focus

    You believe that people should look at the big picture before making decisions. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a government that can focus on the big issues that will be affecting everyone of the next 100 years. This may be because you have seen too much spending on the "symptoms" rather than the underlying causes. It may also be because you feel that wealthy countries have a responsibility to the rest of the world. Others may disagree with you because they don ’t want to set aside their own needs for the needs of others far away. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they can be too optimistic about their ability to make a difference.
    Combined statement:

    Based on your answers, you are in favor of establishing the "global village" and all that follows from it.

    Highest ranking dimension: Rationalist
    You believe in the power of reason to solve problems. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a leader who will honest about the costs and benefits of things. You may have felt that what the country really needs is to stop wasting time and money on silly hot button issues. This may be because you have been annoyed by people who get disproportionately excited about issues that won ’t make much difference to people’s lives no matter how they are decided. It may also be because you see too many squeaky wheels getting too much grease. Others may disagree with you because they have an emotional attachment to their positions and don’t see things in an objective way. W hen politicians of your type make mistakes because what they perceive as "logical" comes across as "confusing" or "uncaring", and they can’t win people over.

    Second highest ranking dimension: Autocratic
    You believe in strong leadership. You may have felt that what the country really needs is for someone to really take charge and break out of the inertia. This may be because you have strong opinions of which you are confident, and like to see political leaders who are like you. It may also be because you are suspicious of the ability of groups, especially large groups to make tough decisions. Others may disagree with you because they trust people less than they trust the "rules of procedure", because they have issues with authority, or because that they feel that "government just doesn ’t listen." When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they try to fit a simple solution on a complex problem.

    Combined statement:
    Based on your answers, you would prefer a "clockwork" government, efficiently run by experts.

    ASCRW - Owenite or Fabian Socialist

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    this is one of the political personality types of the PPQ

    description
    Robert Owen a successful industrialist, was an early “socialist without the class struggle” his basic conception was that human beings were moulded, for better or worse by their society and community, as such the powerful held a responsibility for the human development of the people under their influence.


    historical

    George Bernard Shaw? and Winston Churchill? were adherents to the Fabian socialist movement, which had much the same idea.

    In Canada the somewhat unique Red Tory? perspective was strongly influenced by these views.

    Unlike most collectivists, advocates tended to try to reform right-wing politics? rather than join left-wing? movement?s.


    current

    The Liberal Party of Canada favours this view by default, as it has never seriously challenged the bulk of state power remaining with the provinces of Canada?, nor sought to create large military or other apparatus that would imply a large central state. Liberals in power have tended to favour lateral agreements among the provinces and territories, though applying strong top-down rationalist authority. Pierre Trudeau? behaved in ways that might be defined as ASCRW though his rhetoric tended to the human rights and natural justice? and classical liberal?.


    future forms

    In green politics the role of central authority is minimized in favour of more local organizing, leaving the small central state in charge of scientifically identifying a wide range of constraints on human activity, some of which require strong authoritarian controls. The geolibertarian? perspective is individualist on social and cultural matters but strongly collectivist on ecological questions.

    In Canada in particular, some have noted the convergence of Red Tory? beliefs with Four Pillars constraints imposed by global conditions, influencing both the Green Party of Canada - especially the GPC platform, 2004 - and the Liberal Party of Canada. Preston Manning wrote an influential essay on the blue-green? perspective, suggesting that the Conservative Party of Canada could likewise learn from this view, and that it had to acknowledge the limits of individualist and neoclassical? views and embraced "full cost accounting".


    Dimensions

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This personality type combines these five perspectives
    authoritarian, small state, collectivist, rationalist, wide focus.


    Likes and dislikes

    people who "make do" on their own

    advocating that society needs a "paradigm shift"
    advocating change at the national or international level

    Yes. There's stuff that doesn't fit me in there as well. Overall, I think it basically just tells me that I'm a callous authoritarian who doesn't want to listen to people whining.

    That's what Rationalist + Autocratic gets you. Test's far from perfect but political tests usually blow, from what I've seen.
    I wonder what the Rationalist + individualist combination gives. A callous loner who tells people to man up and mind their own business, perhaps.

    Haha, I better never go into politics . I have to add tho that I skipped nearly 15 questions, I didnt see a point in, maybe that influenced the result in some wrong way. A question like "Did you donate money to a local social institution recently?", I found stupid, cause if you say yes or no you say something about yourself. I do social work in my community every 2 weeks, like helping to build a small park next to our school, so the kids got someplace to play or I fix cars and charge nothing for the locals here.

    Therefore what I wanted to say, to do work for a social community can be a kind of help like giving money aswell.
