 According to the Pew Research Center Political Typology Quiz, I’m a ....

Post-Modern:


Post-Moderns
13% OF THE PUBLIC

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!

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.

Indeed!

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]
