Around 5-10 minutes to take. Not as funny as the F-test but much more insightful. Much deeper questions, good evaluation of lots of things we deal with today.

And I was hoping to salvage myself after yesterday's "liberal airhead" rating on the F-Test, but...

Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.77

So, scumbag tree-hugging liberal who will spend all of your money if given a chance. My wife already knew this. I scored close the Dalai Lama, which means "on my deathbed, I will receive total consciousness, so I got that goin' for me."[/Carl Spackler]

Curious to see how folks score on this one.

Actually Mike, I bet that's "normal American." Bet many folks come out that way here....pretty much centered (who would have thought? ;-))

That means you are a small tree-hugger!

Seriously, that means you're left of Mike economically and more socially liberal than Mike. You and Mike probably don't line up with notions of gov't programs, etc.

Not uncommon with you old folks with your kind of background (public service career and based in a Southern state with a lot of public works history (TVA, etc.)), to tell you the truth. You're not a curmudgeon yet and you might even vote Democrat one day....or at least once upon a time you used to... :wink:

Well, I am -6.00 Economic and -4.31 social

But they don't call me an airhead here.. Being in the company of Neslon Mandela,Ghandim and the Dalai Lama works for me.

I'll never be a Democrat though -- I am a Green, but admit there ARE some airheads in the Green Party.

Ahem, economic -6.25 social -8.0.

Woody, just to bring to your attention, but the term comrade is an inclusive term, hence the notion of exclusivity is there. :lol: :lol:

Now I feel the need to channel my authoritarian side. I need to correct a dog, establish pack hierarchy, or reinforce myself as alpha. :roll: :wink:

HAH! Social -8.0. Now I know why Ed Frawley complained about all the dope-smokers in Schutzhund. :lol: :lol:

My goodness, Melissa, I feel almost good enough for Fox News if you're decking out scores like this. Proud of ya!

Jerry Lyda and Matt Hammond, take the damn test! We need to re-balance our forum average...:lol: :twisted:

Ya know, its funny. I generally don't consider myself quite THAT left; my economic answers where problably influenced by books/movies from the last few months.

But yeah, I do own a pair of Birkenstock, but no pot! I have a 14 year old!

I think most Americans are way more "liberal" then they would ever openly admit or vote. It's become a catch-all term for waste and superficial distractions and anti-patriotism...it's too bad. I have met very few Americans who are not "situationally" liberal when presented with an obligation to help folks who cannot help themselves. It's hard to yell a lot of Limbaugh insults when you're in a situation where you can improve someone else's lot in life. But it makes for very bad AM radio.

Oh my god, say it ain't so! May not be anything left to do but eat a pistol.

Uhhhh, the pistol comment is really just a joke for any observing shrinks.

The funny thing is that I absolutely believe in laws and social order and authority and am pretty straight laced. I believe if you are going to break a law, it should only be done in the spirit of Civil Disobedience to challenge the law because it needs to come off the books. And then you need to be prepared to face the consequences, so pick your battles.

I just happen to think that government run by big business of big business and for big business is a bad idea. And that I need to worry about my own morality and not that of other people as long as they are not hurting me or anyone else.

So, yep, I think pot should be legal - don't smoke it / don't have time to waste sitting around contemplating nothing or coming up with great ideas that are never actualized - and I have grown kids - I would rather have it legalized and controlled so that "God knows what" is not in the stuff and it is not associated and profited by the criminal element.

I used to trade and market oil commodities at a Very Big Oil Company and then worked at GE and now work at another big company. And yes, based on my experiences (particularly in energy market trading), it's a really bad idea. People yap up free markets and capitalism quite a bit and seem to forget about how capitalism worked in the late 1800s, in the 1950s, and now in emergent countries.

I agree, comrade! Connie can hook you up next time you're out at her commune in Santa Cruz. :lol: No need for an address, just drop the dog off Hwy 17 around Santa Cruz and he'll alert like a fire alarm. :lol:

Joke, Connie!

Unless Connie is a mass murderer and has some bodies stashed out there Grim would be oblivious (I think)

Just a joke Connie - that's what you get for taking off.

Before I post mine, I'm just going to openly say that I did not understand what some of those questions meant, so I just chose something. :oops:

Having said that, I STILL have no idea what my score means, other than I'm inbetween Stalin and Ghandi on the graph. :lol: I'm very close to Pope John Paul II.
