I received a political quiz from a friend of mine a few days ago. It seemed kind of simplistic, but I took it just for grins. It pegged me perfectly. I then gave it to a bunch of people I know, and it nailed all of them spot on. Then, just for the heck of it, I tried answering the questions as I imagined other friends, whom I didn’t send the quiz to but who’s political leanings I knew, would have answered and it got them right on the money.
So, click here to try it and see where you fall in the political spectrum. Or at least where this quiz tells you you fit.
In case you’re interested, I tested out as a full libertarian. As libertarian as one can possibly be, in fact. Since the test is on a libertarian website, I figured that maybe any way one answered the question would peg them as libertarian, but such is not the case since no one (other than yours truly) scored as a libertarian. As I mentioned above, every friend I had take the test came ended up with an accurate labeling of his or her actual political affiliation. The only one who didn’t was a friend who was an extreme liberal a few years ago, but had a close encounter with the so-called “axis of evil” on 9/11. Since his experience he has become, in my view, an extreme conservative, but the test identified him as a centrist.
You can probably take the info that I scored as an extreme libertarian and deconstruct or reverse engineer the quiz and figure out exactly how I answered all the questions.
Have fun. I would be interested to learn how accurate you think this quiz is in terms of your own political beliefs. You don’t have to reveal how you really feel, just drop me a comment telling me if you think the quiz is accurate.
