Yes i wonder why there was no neutral option on the test. Some questions i really would have been "neither agree nor disagree" but was forced to choose "agree" or "disagree" which was not a true reflection of me....

I wonder how the questions about astrology and luck fit in. Obviously I strongly disagreed with both, but on strongly agreeing for fun it knocked my Auth/Lib score up to -4.92 from -5.88 while the L/R stayed the same. Are people who believe in luck and astrology somehow oppressed by authority, as well as just being silly?

I thought this was a bad question. Most abstract art does represent something, such as a concept or mood.

I'm a compassionate libertarian.
Anyone who isn't should be put up against a wall and shot, in my view.

Hey guys!

You do realise that now you have completed the self assessment tests, which include your VERY strongly held political views and subliminal threats against the establishment that you are now on worldwide computer data banks and federal and government agencies.

The daily movements and habits of the more 'unsavoury' characters will be monitored.

Beware the knock on the door in the middle of the night!

Who started this thread off?

What do we know about him? (Or her).

Has anyone seen him? (Or her).

Does this person really exist?

They are everywhere.
They are watching.
Waiting.

An interesting take on the above test is not what you think you are but what would you like your leader to be !
Remembering that you are much more likely to be with me and the rest at the bottom of the heap not in the :-
White House
Kremlin
10 Downing St.
Some palace in bongo - bongo land
etc.

tread carefully my son - OR they will be after YOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

I've just retaken the same test and I've become more liberal.

I thought that may be the case as I do feel less caring if I can put it that way.


Interesting stuff

Surely you are forgetting 2 important points.
1. That is are you looking in the mirror to be what you want or are you being honest and telling it how it is ?
2. Secondly what sort of politician would you vote for that you would like to rule ?

These new reality programmes on TV are interesting on these points. The shows that particularly illustrates these points are the Storage Locker wars and Baggage wars.
The characters psyche themselves up on the way. Saying how great they are etc. and how dumb the opposition is etc. Might deflate their egos if they asked the audience.
