Seeing that this place is filled to the brim with politics, philosophy, anthropology, and history buffs: it has made me curious to see where you guys score on this test:

"Moral Foundations Theory, developed by psychologists Jonathan Haidt and Craig Joseph, suggests that there are innate and universal psychological foundations underlying human morality. According to the theory, people's moral judgments are based on six primary foundations. In this test, you will be presented with a statement, and then will answer with your opinion on the statement from a range of Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly effecting your scores. Your final scores will be shown as a percentage for each foundation."

I don't put too much faith in the legitimacy of the test, as I don't with any personality or political test for that matter. Either way, here is my results (along with the link): https://moralfoundations.github.io/

I got my results:

https://moralfoundations.github.io/results.html

A lot less on authoritarian thought and low score on the conservative side of the spectrum of morality.

High on caring and fairness and liberty. That made sense. I think caring, fairness and liberty is far more important than authoritarian stuff and in group and exclusive stuff usually associated with conservative values. I never liked those values. For me life is about caring and freedom and nondiscrimination. Do not try to control people, tell them how to think or what to do...and do not think your group is better than the others. You will be in the wrong mindset if you do. But that is what that test is about eh?

Same here.

I scored 2% for Authority


I find that interesting. You were in the British army, right? You have to be in a hierarchical structure right?

I do think the authoritarians have to justify their authority. Just blind obedience to the powers that be are not for me and never will be.

I do not like being an authoritarian. But I often have to discipline my son. I never liked it. I find it exhausting having to be controlling and dictating. I do not know how people like that at all Ingliz?

Yes, but that was my choice.

It doesn't mean you have to buy into the bullshit and turn into the little tin soldier.

It was just a job and all jobs have a hierarchical structure.

My mind was still my own.

And it had its perks.

Following orders can be fun sometimes. In what other job could you point a rifle at an American 2-star General's head and politely tell him to piss off and don't come back until you have the right piece of paper and a valid ID.


:lol:

Apropos the General ...

The US Army has a word for it - 'Malicious compliance.'

Does that mean if I became a white supremacist, or you dropped it, we would get along?

Hmm, Ingliz, it is a strange test. I like the political compass test better. However, none of these tests really give you an accurate picture of what a person is morally.

A person who thinks doing others harm is a good thing is sociopathic in general, yet the way they view themselves as being fair and caring when they are just garden-variety sociopaths is interesting eh?

Far more interesting is what the US Army manual says are the qualities of a good top officer in a war. It is illuminating because it compiles a lot of verified data on what is necessary for a commander to have if they are successful at leading their people.

Politicians in today's US government are almost the exact opposite of the US Army manuals guidelines. ;)

If you care about people you would want to harm the other people who threaten them.
