This test: Click Here (moral-politics.com), is rather nifty. Even more nifty are the statistics and distributions. I must advise taking the test, opening a new window and reading about what the test tries to do before deciding whether you think your score is accurate.

I have no interest (and I suspect others feel the same) in anyone's personal score except my own. So please let's not turn this into an "I got X and Y" thread. Or a "I didn't/wouldn't vote for the person they said I was closest to" thread.

I am curious, however, what people think of this as a general metric. I think it's an excellent way to quickly gauge where one stands on an ideological level: "moral order" would appear to describe how you think society should be and "moral rules" seems to indicate how involved you feel the government should be in enforcing that ideal.

Obviously, no test can capture everything. And certainly there were questions where I felt like what I believe wasn't one of the options. The questions are not "new" nor is that sort of test, but I think the presentation of the data sets it apart.

Most of the responses didn't seem mutually exclusive, which made answering difficult. In fact, I wasn't satisfied with any of the options given, which is why the results seem so scatterbrained. Or perhaps it just shows that this simple labelling of beliefs doesn't work. What they're trying to do seems interesting enough, but it doesn't seem to go into enough detail to really work.

Isn't moral politics an oxymoron. Seriously though, it was an interesting test and I was about where I thought I would be.

For what it's worth, I found this interesting: I did both the long and the short tests. The results for each test were completely opposite to one another, though I felt the results of the long test better reflected my own position.

So I'm a moderate liberal with a capitalism democratist idealogue, and the US president who best fits me is.....Gerald Ford?! I suddenly feel like watching some football and eating some nachos.
