It's like I didn't even take the damn thing.
Radicalism: 47 percent

Tenderness: 51.5 percent

Socialism: 26 percent

These scores indicate that you are a moderate; this is the political profile one might associate with a regular person. It appears that you are neutral towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

To round out the picture, 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.

We are also beginning to collect enough responses to see that the spectrum of canned response phrases is limited.

One also wonders how descriptive phrases similar to

like a university professor
like a police officer
like a priest

are is describing people, given that each of these kinds of people can span the spectrum of human belief and behavior.

what use is a description that doesn't describe?

libertarian
Radicalism: 71 percent
Tenderness: 35 percent
Socialism: 34 percent

These scores indicate that you are a tough-minded radical; this is the political profile one might associate with a liberated atheist. It appears that you are cynical towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

To round out the picture, your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of
someone who would generally be described as libertarian.

Well I have to say I find it interesting that I keep taking such tests and winding up about where I'd expect, certainly close to how I identified myself years ago, so maybe characteristics I have are somewhat "lumpable" into a category.

These days I consider myself a sort of lapsed libertarian... willing to have some level of gov't programs rather than leave everything up to a market.

AbE: I should note I agree with Archer that "cynical" is a little harsh. I don't find anything inherently negative about all religions or all religious people. Skeptical makes more sense.

AbE2: There was a question about "liberated athiest". Since that's where it usually puts occupations for other people I think they are suggesting "unemployed" or "unemployable" with the added misfortune they can't even get work as a priest because they won't qualify for that either.
