Anyone tried this yet? https://8values.github.io/

8values is, in essence, a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages for eight different political values. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!

This is what I got:



Some of the questions are a litle vague, and I would've expected myself to score (even) higher in terms of peacefulness. I've also never thought of myself as a libertarian, but for the most part this is pretty accurate in my case.

Not surprising. As usual, some answers require more nuance than is available.

I get the CUIaLB error message if I try to post my results, but they're pretty predictable. Pretty much the exact opposite of Gary, but considerably less warlike.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

A lot these questions were annoying to answer because I hate taking hardline/black and white stances to everything.

I accidentally closed the browser before saving the results  :facepalm:, but not surprisingly, I was near the middle in every category and was labeled a centrist.  Sounds about right. :lol :lol

Centrist here. Such a boring label. Can't paste image.

This says I'm way more liberal than I would normally expect. Some of the questions were weird. And I accidentally clicked "strongly agree" on 2 before I read what was being asked.

But hey, whatever. I'm about to graduate and rejoin the work force, and have rekindled a relationship from a couple years ago, so I'm probably in a better mood than I usually am. I've always said in a just and perfect world we'd all be liberals, but the world as it is does require conservatives to balance the optimism. I guess I'm on a liberal kick at the moment.

I didn't know "Libertarian Socialism" was a valid political orientation  :lol, kinda of an oxymoron there.

Neat quiz. I had to pick "Unsure" on a few because they would really depend on how certain things were defined, but overall it seems about right.

Yea, I answered unsure on maybe 10 of the 70 questions so that probably lead to me being very centric in my results.  Some questions are just too simply worded when the question is very difficult to answer in such a way, plus I actually am truly unsure of many things in the political landscape.

For good measure I answered "unsure" for every question just to see if there was any kind of result skewing. I scored 50/50 in all categories.
