Social Attitude Test

There was a time earlier in this blog's history where I regularly shared fun tests and quizzes. For example, there was the Mensa Quiz, the 8th grade science quiz, the select a Presidential candidate quiz and a quiz aimed to test your innate intelligence by posing a series of questions involving tricky travel situations. I miss those days.

Anyway, I found this social attitude test and thought I would share this today. Please note that according to the website, "unlike many other political tests found on the Internet which base themselves on untested (and usually ideologically motivated) ideas, this inventory is adapted from Hans Eysenck's own political inventory which was developed after extensive empirical investigations in the 20th Century." With that, here are my results:

These scores indicate that you are a tender-minded 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 capitalist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a political centrist.

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


First, I'm not sure that I consider being associate with an animal rights activist as a good thing. Sure, I'm against dog-fighting and support ethical treatment of animals, but I really enjoy a good burger. While religion is important to me, I find it personal and don't like people preaching their views and proselytizing. I think a political centrist with few strong opinions is fairly accurate. I'm generally for compromise and want people to get along though I feel that I lean towards being socially liberal.

Feel free to take the quiz and share your results in the comments section below.

I am no statistician, and I don't know much about making accurate surveys, but there were some serious flaws in the questions this asked. Nevertheless, here are my scores:

Radicalism 99.5
Socialism 93.75
Tenderness 56.25

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 communist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as left-wing.

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