Big Picture More Than Simple Tests
While the test is amusing, I think it is the content of the entire work which should be emphasized. However if you must know my scores for compartmentalization purposes, here they are:

1. Altemeyer

2. For inveterate test-takers, here is another http://www.politicalcompass.org/test

3. And another http://www.okcupid.com/politics

My scores:

1. 23

2. -4.75 economic left/right; -7.79 social libertarian/authoritarian

3. Socialist

I was hoping to find that test that stated I am an Anarcho-syndicalist Libertarian but that was a few years back. At any rate that is how I define myself, regardless of any test results.

Whoo hoo,I didnt know I was off suspension. "Gaybaiter",?, for some reason that just doesnt sound right. Sounds like this boy has a problem with queermo sexuals, yeah dont we all at some point especially that 'Peter Pan' Rrhain, Im just kidding Rrhain, just calm down, Im not serious. People of that nature are distrubed but we are still suppose to love them as ourselves, without loving thier lifestlye and manners of life.

Anywho I was wondering if you could take a vote at the admin office and try for a 4 in the affirmative, 0 in the negative, to permanently suspend me, to put us out of our misery.

When it got to the point where people were actually questioning that eixstence was actually real or that Jesus was an actual person, I said to myself, whaaaaaaaaat? What kind of people are you dealing with here Bertot, they must be complete morons.

Hey, I did make it to the 1000 post club though, I will expect my goldwatch and a letter of congradulations in the mail.

I will call you a coward and a spinless dork if you only do "indefinate".

The Doo-Wap Dago, signing off, Im hoping I can meet up with one of those commericalships in about six or seven months, wait a inute thats another stroy. End transmission, from Nostromo.

While the test, as Altemeyer clearly states, is not the central tenet of his work, it is clear just as I warned, this stuff is pure poison to fundies.

It occasionally reduces them to pure gibberish.

{ABE}and upon reflection concerning his post, Bertot probably didn't even read Altemeyer at all, just the very existence of the thread alone seems to have made him somewhat insensible.

Powerful stuff indeed.

Junior I only thought I knew what gibberish was, until I got to this place. As far as that test is concerned, sorry, I never had a desire to play games or any sort, not even cards, there usually a waste of time, but I did take the time to read a couple of questions to see if i was correct, and I was.

Predicted this exact behavior in the ABE. :laugh:
