How Libertarian Am I? My Quiz Results

Earlier this week, I published a list of ten political and libertarian quizzes along with my ratings and commentary. Below are my own personal results for each of the ten political quizzes so that you'll know where The Humble Libertarian's Editor stands on the issues (according to these quizzes). Enjoy!


1. The World's Smallest Political Quiz
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:


It also clarified the definition of "libertarian" as follows: "LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence. Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties."


2. Nolan Chart Survey
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:

"Your answers suggest that you are a libertarian. The yellow star shows more precisely where you fall within the libertarian region of the Nolan chart."


3. Libertarian Purity Test
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:

91-130 points: You have entered the heady realm of hard-core libertarianism. Now doesn't that make you feel worse that you didn't get a perfect score?



4. "Yet Another Libertarian Quiz
"
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:

Total Inefficiency: 56.6%

What it means: A high inefficiency score indicates that you favor policies that make people more unhappy than they could be otherwise.

Your score breaks down as follows:

Authoritarian: 0%
What it means: A high score under authoritarian indicates that you advocate policies that inefficiently restrict the rights of individual people, placing these rights under government control instead. You believe that in many cases the government knows better than individuals what is good for them.

Anarchic: 80%
What it means: A high score under anarchic indicates that you are probably a stereotypical extremist libertarian. You believe that people ought to be inefficiently within their rights to perform certain actions, even if those actions make others worse off without compensation. You have arbitrarily selected certain behaviors as unquestionable natural rights and the impact they have on people who disagree is of no consequence.

Your position on the chart is shown as a blue dot. The lower left corner indicates the highest efficiency. The arcs indicate progressively worse efficiency with the upper right corner being the most inefficient possible based on the questions asked.



5. Political Ideology Quiz
(take this political quiz here)

My result:

You Scored as Libertarian

You're a libertarian. That kind of means you're a right wing Anarchist. Go buy a gun, some gin, and wait for the hippies to show up.

Libertarian 90%
Anarchism 80%
Republican 57%
Democrat 23%
Fascist 17%
Socialism 17%



6. "What Kind of Libertarian Are You?" Quiz
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:

You Scored as
Minarchist

Minarchists are libertarians who advocate a strictly limited government and usually a more decentralized form of it. Minarchists may vary in the degree to which they think that government should be limited, although the bare bones position is essentially nothing more than police, courts and the military. Minarchists tend to think that some minimum level of government is a necessary evil, or at least an inevitability. The contemporary libertarian movement in America is dominantly minarchist, although it has had a long history of dialogue and debate between minarchist and anarchist libertarians.

Minarchist 75%
Left-libertarian 58%
Agorist 58%
"Small L" libertarian 58%
Paleo-libertarian 50%
Anarcho-capitalist 33%
Neo-libertarian 25%
Geo-libertarian 8%
Libertarian socialist 0%



7. "Are You A Libertarian?" Quiz
(take this libertarian quiz here)

You are 85% Libertarian Material

You are a tried and true libertarian! ::gives you the secret handshake:: What more can be said? You value freedom, you value capitalism, and you loathe all the right things and people! The Ron Paul revolution lives on!

8. Libertarian or Authoritarian Quiz
(take this libertarian quiz here)

My result:

You are a strong libertarian. You believe that the government should be much smaller and that the U.S.A. would be better that way.


9. Political Ideology Quiz
(take this political quiz here)

My result:




10. Political Philosophy Quiz
(take this political quiz here)

My results:

The following are your scores. They are based on a gradual range of 0 to 12. For instance, a Conservative/Progressive score of 3 and 0 will both yield a result of social conservative, yet 0 would be an extreme conservative and 3 a moderate conservative

Conservative/Progressive score: 6
You are a social moderate. You think the progressive movement is overall well meaning, but sometimes it goes too far. On issues like abortion and affirmative action, you see the negatives of both extremes on the issue. You probably value religion, but at the same time you think it should still stay separate from the government

Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 0
You're a Capitalist Purist. You believe that the market should be completely free, and that the invisible hand of the market will make sure that the people get what they want and will do it in the most efficient way possible. You believe in small government, less taxes, and more privatization.

Libertarian/Authoritarian score: 0
You are libertarian. You think that the government is making way too many unnecessary laws that are taking away our innate rights. You believe that the government's job is primarily to protect people from harming other people, but after that they should mind their own business, and if we give the government too much power in controlling our lives, it can lead to fascism.

Pacifist/Militarist score: 2
You're a Pacifist. You are angered that the United States thinks it should dominate the world through its military force. You think that the only time war is necessary is when we are in direct danger of being attacked. You also believe the US spends way too much of its money on defense, as we can practically cut it in half and still easily defend ourselves, and use that money to fix all our economic problems.

Overall, you would most likely fit into the category of Hardcore Libertarian

W.E., this is off topic, but I was wondering why you're not following independent libertarian Joe Kennedy's campaign for MA Senate more closely here.

GO TO PERSON
Every family should have a “go to” person who can give answers to political and issue concerns, as suggested by Rush Limbaugh. Learning how means starting at the roots, the beginnings and differences between two sides of the same coin, which is all there is. One side is long established, where the few rule the many, irrespective of their labels. The other side is the newest, that of individual freedom and limited government. Why do many follow each side, and why the conflict between them? What side do current issues come from, such as health care, cap and trade as well as amnesty for illegal immigrants? What side of the coin most impacts the lives of your family, to whom you provide the answers? Call up claysamerica.com for the roots of both sides and improve your understanding of the issues so you have the answers. Claysamerica.com
