These tests never fail to make me laugh.

"When people make decisions, they really should listen to their hearts."

How in the hell is that question an indicator of political standing? It's little more than a cliche.

These scores indicate that you are a progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a university professor. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a pragmatic attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as libertarian.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, an egalitarian with few strong opinions.

This concludes our analysis; we hope you found your results accurate, useful, and interesting.

Would it kill you to have a little more tenderness in your life?

I am significantly less... tender... than the results so far. Whatever that means.

these online tests are surprisingly somewhat reliable

These scores indicate that you are a tender-minded moderate progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with an animal rights activist.
It appears that you are moderate towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear laissez-faire capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as libertarian.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a pragmatist with very few strong opinions.



I know I have more tenderness than JT, but not as much as Martha, and they are both more radical than me.

I'm apparently more of a libertarian than the libertarian!

Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a political centrist.

Pretty interesting. Almost exactly the same as digitize. Some questions were indeed odd.

"These scores indicate that you are a progressive; this is the profile one might associate with a university professor. You appear to be skeptical towards religion and have a pragmatic attitude toward humanity in general.

The tenderness ranking is really interesting, because it appeared to me that what they were really testing was one's commitment to rationalism- "when people make decisions they should really listen to their hearts" and what all. If you are deeply invested in reason than you can't strongly agree with that, no matter how tenderhearted you are. I think they are framing tenderness as being closely related to faith and nonreason, which is questionable to me.

Why does only one poster show a sexism score? I didn't get one.
