Strictly left/right spectrum test by PEW

Political Typology Quiz

Where Do You Fit in the Political Typology?

Are you a Steadfast Conservative? A Solid Liberal? Or somewhere in between? Take our quiz to find out which one of our Political Typology groups is your best match compared with a national survey of over 10,000 U.S. adults conducted by the Pew Research Center.

You may find some of these questions are difficult to answer. For example, you may partly agree with both statements, or feel that neither quite describes your view. That’s ok. In those cases, pick the answer that comes closest to your view, even if it isn’t exactly right. You can also use a group version of this quiz to engage your students or other group members.

Begin Quiz →

Your best fit is...
Solid Liberal
along with 15% of the public.

So I am well to the left as I expected.

You?

In other words for question after question I feel both answers are true and can't rank one above the other.

Seemed fairly accurate
quote:

Your best fit is...
Young Outsider
along with 13% of the public.

quote:
This relatively young, largely independent group holds a mix of conservative and liberal views. And while more lean toward the Republican Party than the Democratic Party, Young Outsiders generally express unfavorable opinions of both major parties. They are largely skeptical of activist government, as a substantial majority views government as wasteful and inefficient. Yet many diverge from the two conservative typology groups – Steadfast Conservatives and Business Conservatives – in their strong support for the environment and many liberal social policies.

Next Generation Left
along with 12% of the public.

Generally young, well-educated and financially comfortable, the Next Generation Left have very liberal attitudes on many issues, including homosexuality, abortion, the environment and foreign policy. While overall supportive of an activist government, most are wary of expanding the social safety net. Most also have relatively positive views of Wall Street’s impact on the economy. While most affiliate with the Democratic Party or lean Democratic, few consider themselves strong Democrats. Compare groups on key issues.

They got the young bit wrong....

I did it for you. I may have been a bit too liberal for you on finance, other than that, it's bang on.

Your best fit is...
Steadfast Conservative
along with 12% of the public.
Share your results:

This overwhelmingly Republican group holds very conservative attitudes across most issues, including social policy and the size and scope of government. However, they generally are critical of business and Wall Street. Overall, Steadfast Conservatives also express highly negative attitudes toward immigrants and take a skeptical view of U.S. global involvement.

There was no doubt here.

Facts don't lie or have an agenda. Facts are just facts

"God did it" is not an argument. It is an excuse for intellectual laziness.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

OK I took it and ended up Steadfast Conservative.

But I hate the questions. They are either both true or both false or represent nothing I identify with.

There's nothing special about you Faith - we all found some of the choices poor/irritating. But by and large we can all recognise ourselves in the outcome can't we?

I don't know any more. Steadfast Conservative seems like a fair enough designation but when I think about how I had to answer the questions to get there I have to wonder how on earth it represents anything meaningful.

Several questions had choices I didn't like to choose between.

Pushed me way left of where I think I am (or am just deluding myself as centrist).
Next Gen Left

Agree more with the Political Party quiz results btw Independent and Moderate Democrat. Would be interested in a quiz with Libertarian & Green included.

http://www.people-press.org/quiz/political-party-quiz/

Here's another political party quiz.
https://www.isidewith.com/political-quiz

Go to the bottom half of the page for a graphic of where you fall Left/Right vs Libertarian/Authoritarian

I'm a Centrist.

Edited by 14174dm, : Found another quiz

I noticed several of the questions were word for word the same as the PEW test.

On this one I am so far left I'm "hanging 10" over the left arrow
← Liberal

even though they classify me as "Based on your responses, your political values are closest to those of a ... Liberal Democrat" but I'm well to their left. Social Democrat?

Here's another political party quiz.
https://www.isidewith.com/political-quiz

Go to the bottom half of the page for a graphic of where you fall Left/Right vs Libertarian/Authoritarian

Again, they say 99% with Jill Stein but I am near the left end: "Left-Wing, Your political beliefs would be considered strongly Left-Wing on an ideological scale, meaning you tend to support policies that promote social and economic equality."

No surprises.

Enjoy
