What Say Computers That I Am?

What are my politics?

One of those quizzes that Jeffrey finds all over the place.

You are a

Social Conservative
(25% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(33% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Totalitarian (33e/25s)

I think that in most cases, these quizes are faulty in terms of both reliability and validity. How can one measure, for example, whether or not one is a "social liberal" when two of the biggest dividing lines between "social liberals" and "social conservative" are not even asked about? I refer, of course, to homosexuality and abortion. I do think, in this case, the quiz probably nails economic attitudes pretty well.

You are, of course, completely right. Furthermore, I can't imagine that the question setter, asking how worried I was about American jobs being exported, really expected someone from over here to answer.

I just think that the ones that Jeffrey finds tend to be fun, in a daft sort of way.

I was more of a Social Conservative than you Ttony. I got the same result as you for Totalitarianism and, I forget, but I think that I was just less of an Economic liberal than you.
