Political Typology: Post-Modern
 According to the Pew Research Center Political Typology Quiz, I’m a ....



What They Believe
  • Generally supportive of government, though more conservative on race policies and the safety net
  • Strongly supportive of regulation and environmental protection
  • Most (56%) say Wall Street helps the economy more than it hurts
  • Very liberal on social issues, including same-sex marriage
  • One of the least religious groups: nearly a third are unaffiliated with any religious tradition
  • Favor the use of diplomacy rather than force
Who They Are
  • The youngest of the typology groups: 32% under age 30
  • A majority are non-Hispanic white and have at least some college experience
  • Half live in either the Northeast or the West
  • A majority (58%) live in the suburbs
  • 63% use social networking
  • One-in-five regularly listen to NPR; 14% regularly watch The Daily Show.
How completely and utterly....unsurprising! Though I've never heard the term "post-modern" applied to political typology before.

On a completely different note, IB exams are ongoing, and for nerdatron examophobes like me that is NOT GOOD NEWS. Especially since I have Chem on Monday and maybe 60 hours of exam material to go through. I had the English Paper 1, and Math Paper 1 & 2 this week, so...three down, eleven to go!

I can't believe it's already been two years for me 8D But I do remember that I had a fever, an allergic shock to my antibiotic and I could barely speak, haha. Best of luck to you :3 You can do this! ♥

Thank you so much! I'll need it. Though it's not like IB actually counts for me (my university doesn't even have English or Chem core reqs, HA!). It's stated above, nerdatron examophobe + the general trauma of IB.

Guh, I guess the sour taste of IB never really leaves your mouth? But gah, that must've sucked major balls! I'm feeling relatively healthy (very sick of chem, though), so I guess I have nothing to really complain about. :P

Thanks again!

Hmm...I'm not sure I fit that description. :) Good luck with your exams!

Beh, politics, schmolitics. That don't change a thing.

Thanks so much, I'll need it! <3

That Politics quiz is really interesting and I enthusiastically slow-mo ran over the internet, as only a Politics student can, to take it... then realised it's only really applicable to those in the US. I'm going to try and hunt down one for British politics.

Good luck on your exams!

Bahaha, I appreciate that, I really do! As a future Politics minor, I can totally see myself doing that. Unfortunately, I know next to nothing about British politics, but maybe this quiz is more inclusive? I just found it. :]

Politics FTW.

And thanks for that! I've taken a Political Compass test before. My results were pretty much the same - lefty, moderate social libertarian - but it was really cool to see how I ranked against other takers. And the demographic comparison is brilliant too.


And you're very welcome! I too have ended up center-left for every quiz I've taken, which I suppose shouldn't be much of a surprise.

It was, wasn't it? I'm a sucker for stats/charts/tables. [/nerd]

I turned out to be a New Coalition Democrat, so we're almost in the same description! :)

That's pretty cool! And I like your icon! Though I don't really understand it, sadly.

Found a more specific quiz here and thought you might be interested. This one labeled me as a "left moderate social libertarian," though I've never thought of myself as a libertarian.

That's pretty cool! And I like your icon! Though I don't really understand it, sadly.

Thanks! As for not really understanding it, what part of it needs explaining?

Also, I ended up as a "center-left social authoritarian" in that other quiz, though I never saw myself as authoritarian or either left OR right (even center-left or center-right).

Not much, haha. That was just me being brain-dead thanks to 20+ hours of furious chem cramming.
