    It should have you a bit more towards the nationalistic / free-market / anti-government side true, but I wouldn't say neo-fascist.

    Could you edit the first post and put Politiscales there? And perhaps (if you want of course) your ratings?

    You are completely right.Where do I fit in political typology? communist? nyet. From an economic and social point of view, I'm socialist,progressive, internationalist, anti-reactionary.

    Affordable, Social, and Substandard Housing and Mortality ...
    Results. Age- and sex-adjusted mortality rates (per 100 000 person-years) were 713 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 584, 863) for individuals residing in conventional housing, and 1019 (95% CI = 637, 1551), 1200 (95% CI = 916, 1551), and 1239 (95% CI = 839, 1772) for individuals residing in affordable housing, social housing, and ilhas, respectively. After further adjustment, the associations between mortality and residence in social housing (rate ratio [RR] = 1.59; 95% CI = 1.22, 2.06) and in ilhas (RR = 1.64; 95% CI = 1.12, 2.33) remained. The association between disadvantaged housing and mortality was stronger than that observed for well-established risk factors such as hypertension, sedentariness, heavy drinking, manual occupation, or obesity.
    Don't be jealous, lazy socialists. Go work hard, stay focused to pursue the "American dream". You might eventually win the lottery. A ticket to Elysium.

    Hmm at this point its probably worth a new thread to be merged into with the better test or maybe a combination of the tests?? I don't know personally, but I would be interested in making a more unified test for the mudpit, or at least a thread where test results are centrally stored

    What I'd like to see is a test that shows things like openness to compromise, ability to see both sides of an argument, to self reflect and correct etc. These axes tests just confirm all our cognitive biases and give us all "you would say that, wouldn't you" answers to each other's posts.

    New quiz just dropped: The Religious Values Test

    Seems kind of inaccurate, though. I said I "Strongly Disagree" with every kind of theocracy but the final result still says I'm a theocrat.

    And no idea how I'm 22% pro-pagan.

    Apparently, I'm a secular Satanist and a fundamentalist pagan.

    I've always positioned my spiritual beliefs as a radical anti-thesis to old testament and Abrahamic thought in general, so being described as extremes Pagan and Satanist didn't surprise me (I've always viewed Satan as more of a Promethean figure that opposes Yahweh's evil behavior and Abraham's groveling slave mentality), also am pro-Buddhist, which is pretty cool!

    There are several other political/values tests on github as well.

    Most boring result: RaDiCaL CeNtRiSt
    Most interesting political result: Centrist Marxist (on LeftValues)
    Most interesting economic result: Distributist
    Result I disagreed with: Universalist Christian.

    There’s also a reddit post archiving a bunch of different ones but IMO none of the others I spot checked were more dynamic than the usual.

    Radical centrist? So does that mean that person would be extreme in their indecisiveness?

    Your scores in all the categories make sense, but then Universalist Christian doesn't make any sense as a summary of the aggregate.

    I personally position myself as radical anti-centrist, as Jreg would phrase it.
