What's your result on the 8values political quiz?

https://8values.github.io/

8values is, in essence, a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!


In my opinion, it's a lot like the political compass, but more nuanced.

Here is my result:

10. Yeah, there were a lot of questions where I was kind of in the middle because there

were too many variables. It just wasn't a straight agree/disagree.

31. That's very close to where I was too

but so many questions were dependent on several factors.

No nuance in the thing.

ETA: https://8values.github.io/results.html?e=80.1&d=79.4&g=77.8&s=84.0

Libertarian Socialist, whatever that means.

Closest Match: Libertarian Socialism

Ideological matching is a work in progress, and is much less accurate than the values and axes.

Social Democracy.

And here I thought I was a Libertarian Socialist like Noam Chomsky! It's the rest of you who are "Commies" like him!

27. I'm pretty sure I did this already

but I don't totally remember. Looking at the eight values, I'm going to predict:

High equality
High global
High liberty
High progress

Will post results when I'm done.

ROFLMAO - wonder I didn't remember! Equality and global didn't appear in my results at all:

Communist
Cosmopolitan
Libertarian
Very Progressive

Libertarian Communist

Some of the questions I did not like. Tax churches like others... I don't like how the others are taxed so I would tax all differently but not given that option.

Are we, as a group, that alike? It's a thinker.

38. Fun quiz, but Libertarian Socialist???? WTH?

I always figured I was a Social Democrat. FDR is my favorite President, even though I was born years after he died.
