    Default Political personality test

    Couldn't find if this link had been posted before, so apologies if this is redundant. But for my money, this is the best political ideology quiz around:

    OpenPolitics.ca : political personality quiz

    I scored DBCLN:

    Description
    This kind of post-revolutionary socialism tends to focus on the bread and butter issues of families, jobs, and hot button social issues.

    Dimensions
    This personality type combines these five perspectives
    democrat, big state, collectivist, idealist, narrow focus

    Likes and dislikes
    Like

    * awareness of one's own biases and preconceptions.
    * expanding the range of public insurance programs (employment insurance, old age pensions, medicare and disability programs).
    * government employment for its stability.
    * a strong sense of social responsibility.
    * thinking in terms of “us and them.”


    Dislike

    * elitism, or rule by experts.
    * tax cuts, particularly on high income individuals or corporations.
    * putting too much trust in statistics.
    * big changes which may introduce as many problems as they solve.
    I consider myself a Populist Democrat rather than a Socialist (post-revolutionary, or any other kind), but ideologically and the likes/dislikes seem to match up pretty well for me.

    My results:

    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.

    Second highest ranking dimension: Literalist
    You believe that "good", "evil", "justice" and "injustice" exist in the world and people need to take a stand. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a politician with a functioning moral compass. This may be because you have seen what happens when "everything is permitted". It may also be because society is being undermined by people for whom numbers are the measure of everything. Others may disagree with you because they tend to rationalize everything, and don ’t have a vision for a better society . When politicians of your type make mistakes it is because they just can’t deal with others who don’t share their faith or beliefs.

    Combined statement:
    Based on your answers, you believe that government should redirect a lot of its effort to creating better citizens.

    Some of these questions are ridiculous "Trees should be able to vote" but here's what I got:

    DSIRW - Anti-Nationalist

    Description

    Not anarchists but something like it, anti-nationalists are sincerely disappointed by the current political world order. These thinkers care much more about quality of life than they do about patriotism, and are likely willing to make do with far less centralized/state power, if it makes empowering the individual more likely. Anti-nationalists take a transformative view of government, favoring anarchism or democratic reform. They are likely to develop plans for a new world order?.

    Dimensions
    This personality type combines these five perspectives
    democrat,small state?, individualist, rationalist, wide focus

    Likes and dislikes
    like:

    * the “wisdom of crowds”.
    * less interference in the free market
    * not accepting limits to the upper end of their success
    * competition, and facing challenges
    * quality of life
    * governments working from a set of logical rules.

    dislike:

    * being bound by scriptures, loosely defined rights, or old conventions.
    * single issue politics
    * a program of incremental changes.
    * temporary fixes.
    * identity politics?
    * territorial behavior


    Philosophy: Independence Democrat
    Alternate Nicknames: (suggest a different nickname for this type)

    * Post-Nationalists (like Postmodern Politics)

    "Trees should be able to vote"??? WTF.

    Highest ranking dimension: Big Government
    You believe in the power of government to make life better. You may have felt that what the country really needs is for the government to get serious about the many problems that people face. This may be because you have seen the system break down and know people who have fallen through the cracks. It may also be because you feel that our society is at risk our communities need better protection from internal and external dangers. Others may disagree with you because they are focused on what government does wrong, rather than what it does right. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is often because they create programs that solve one problem but create others.

    Second highest ranking dimension: Literalist
    You believe that "good", "evil", "justice" and "injustice" exist in the world and people need to take a stand.

    My results don't make a lot of sense...

    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: Literalist

    Combined statement:
    Based on your answers, you would like to see a system of government that supports "mini states" where people with shared values could live by their own creed.
    The bolded is true, though.

    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, you are big on a "by the people for the people government" that takes good care of its citizens.

    I thought I would include a picture of the first page, since neither the text, alone, nor the profile on the second page really gives an adequate description of my "political personality."

    DBCLW - "Hippie" Socialist

    This kind of egalitarian is focuses on building collective institutions as the foundation of society, be they religious or secular. In this view, the individual serves the collective more than the other way around. Individuals are expected to contribute to achieve collective group or national goals. Contributions can be in monetary gifts, taxes or volunteer service, depending on the group. Group solidarity is strong around a creed, culture, or philosophy. Can include intentional and religious communities. Some types of people in this group will reject the title of "Hippie" because it conflicts with religious or cultural values.

    democrat, big state, collectivist, idealist, wide focus

    Likes and dislikes
    like:

    * identify strongly with religious, ethnic or cultural groups
    * enjoy public celebrations
    * society needs a "paradigm shift"
    * change needs to happen at the national or international level, until then local activism is just "spitting against the wind".
    * favoring fairness over "efficiency"

    dislike:

    * vesting too much power in individuals
    * decisions made in a hurry.
    * tax cuts, particularly on high income individuals or corporations.
    * people who flout "community standards".

    Mine indicated that I was a socialist, which was what I expected anyway.

    Although I'm a big fan of socialists who havent been in print in years, like GDH Cole, Cole didnt think that the government was a means of introducing or furthering socialist objectives and so do I, it means that I might have opinions similar to some conservatives at time but for very different reasons.

    The quiz came back with this thing about me being a literalist and thinking that politicians should have greater moral compasses, that I could have seen how bad things get when everything is permitted. That's pretty accurate.

    Highest ranking dimension: Small Government

    You believe in a government that keeps order but otherwise stays out of the way. You may have felt that what the country really needs is a government with the courage to take on some of the "sacred cows" of government spending. This may be because you have been irked by how much you pay in taxes. It may also be because you feel that excessive government support programs reward those with no initiative. Others may disagree with you because they see some people as having the system stacked against them. When politicians of your type make mistakes it is because they find it difficult to maintain the "tough love" approach when their friends and supporters ask for help.

    Second 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.
