Fun tests. My scores are somewhat different to say the least.

First, I am described as a liberal-socialist:

You scored higher than 75% on Equality

You scored higher than 20% on Liberty

You scored higher than 2% on Stability

Second test, I am described as egalitarian:

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 8% on individualism

You scored higher than 95% on fatalism

You scored higher than 8% on hierarchy

You scored higher than 87% on egalitarianism

Well, we're both pretty against "stability" and "hierarchy," but obviously I'm way more concerned about the principles of Liberty and Individualism than you. And, in turn, you are way more concerned about Equality than me, and marginally more concerned about Egalitarianism.

I wasn't surprised to see how strongly I scored with respect to Liberty and Individualism - obviously, since I self-identify as a libertarian (albeit a left-leaning one).

I got slightly lower scores than you on all four traits. I took this test a while ago, so I don't remember exactly how much; I only remember I got 0% on hierarchy, and that I got a very high individualism score (maybe in the 80s), a fairly high egalitarianism one (maybe in the 50s), and a low fatalism score.

In reality my cultural bias is indeed individualist, but not egalitarian, and although in politics I often ally with egalitarians over individualists, in cultural bias I'm a strict individualist. On the other hand, at times I have a hierarchist streak, gotten mostly from letting the experts speak on issues on which they agree, such as evolution and climate change.

Excellent point. I, too, do this. Though I have some higher education in the science field, I'm certainly no expert. So, I look to prestigious scientific organizations like the NAS in order to judge the credibility of hypotheses.

I know the whole "appeal to authority argument" is a fallacy, but I have to say, on scientific matters, I gladly defer to scientists. But, that's about the only hierarchical thing with which you could connect me.
