Lately I found a quiz from a forum that I regularily visist(unfortunately am not a member)

http://www.orgburo.com/pofoquiz/pofo.php

My results were:

Overall, the PoliticsForum quiz considers you a socially-orientated, materialist, small-government, internationalist, protectionist, controlled-market kind of person, who also seems quite Marxist.

Individual vs Social
"The individualist believes that society works best through a focus on individual rights, freedoms, actions and responsibilities. The social thinker believes that the ideal state should focus more upon collective action and take a social approach to rights and responsibilities."


Individual Social

You scored 68 out of 100 on a scale of Individual vs Social. This means that politically you are more likely to value the need for group actions and group benefit over individual enterprise and benefit.

Theist vs Materialist
"The materialist believes that all objective criteria to influence politics can be reasonably derived without recourse to the divine or the spiritual. The theist believes that spiritual beliefs are important and should influence government policy."


Theist Materialist

You scored 77 out of 100 on a scale of Theist vs Materialist. This means that politically you are more likely to believe that religion and spirituality are superstitions that should not inform political debate

Big Government vs Small Government
"The big government advocate believes that governments should be responsible for regulating a wide array of social practices, even what might be considered personal decisions such as abortion, euthanasia, children's education and births. A small government advocate thinks that, wherever possible, these issues should be up to individuals or companies to direct."


Big Gov Small Gov

You scored 62 out of 100 on a scale of Big Government vs Small Government. This means that politically you are more likely to believe that government should keep out of legislating social policies, leaving such decisions to individuals.


Nationalist vs Internationalist
"The nationalist believes in the sovereign rule of nation states, particularly his or her own. The internationalist believes that there should be more important international fora and perhaps, ultimately, international government."


National International

You scored 85 out of 100 on a scale of Nationalist vs Internationalist. This means that politically you are more likely to favour international bodies over national ones.


Protectionist vs Free Trader
"The protectionist believes in barriers against free trade most probably due to a belief that this is in his or her country's interests. The free trader rejects such notions, believing that the system ultimately suffers when tariffs, subsidies and other obstacles to free trade persist."


Protection Free-Trade

You scored 25 out of 100 on a scale of Protectionist vs Free Trader. This means that politically you are less likely to favour free trade over protectionist policies.



Absolutist vs Non-Absolutist
"The absolutist believes that either a divine presence or scientific laws provide absolute truths about the world, which can and should be applied in practise. The non-absolutist may be either a relativist, or simply someone who is more pragmatic."


Absolute Non-Absolute

You scored 47 out of 100 on a scale of Absolutist vs Non Absolutist. This means that politically you are neither more nor less likely to believe that there is an absolute truth that may guide your ideological beliefs.


Controlled Market vs Liberal Market
"Both of these categories assume a capitalist system. Assuming this system, the controlled market believer holds that government should intervene in regulating a nation's economy: wage laws, environmental standards, privatised industries and workplace relations policy. A liberal market thinker believes that such regulation is unnecessary and often counter-productive."


Controlled Liberal

You scored 16 out of 100 on a scale of Controlled Market vs Liberal Market. This means that politically you are more likely to believe that there is need for government regulation of industry.


Marxist vs Non-Marxist
"This scale purports to show to what extent you follow the thought and teachings of Marx. Marxists tend to be scientific, materialist and revolutionary, believe in class struggle and the laws of historical and dialectic materialism."


On Marxist I think I scored 16, which is quite leaning towards Marxism.

Note: This was created by a Marxist I think, but it is very open-minded.

Please post your results.

Fantastic Quiz. I was a Communist (no suprise).

"The PoliticsForum quiz considers you a socially-orientated, materialist, internationalist, protectionist, absolutist, controlled-market kind of person, who also seems quite Marxist."

Social individual: 74

theist materialist: 81

Big Gov Small Gov: 33

Protectionist Free trade: 20

Absolutist non abosolutist: 31

Controlled Market Liberal Market: 20


On Marxist vs. Non Marxist, I'm pretty sure I got a 20 which is very Marxist

Ha! I'm a "non-absolutist kind of person", which places me in the overall category of "being non-categorisable". I was almost straight down the middle on everything, though usually a little bit to the right of the center of the scale itself.

That is because most people are capitalist, and the only real attraction to it is individual wealth, which is quite hard to attain. So a capitalist is naturally ultra-individualistic.

Also it is "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." by Mao Tse-tung.

About 53% MXist. that would make me neither more nor less MXist.

So in seven of the eight categories I’m “neither more nor less”.

Dubious. Besides I despise MXism.

About what I expected. Some of the questions were a little to general and had to be answered neutral:


Overall, the PoliticsForum quiz considers you a materialist, small-government, nationalist, free-trade, kind of person, who doesn't sound like a Marxist.

These characteristics would put you in the overall category of libertarian. Your natural home at PoliticsForum would be the Liberalism area.

Below, on this page, is an analysis of the (up to) eight categories that you were sorted into above, and an explanation of how you scored on the eight scales used to determine these categorisations.

The pages following this one show the breakdown of results for all participants on each question. You can freely navigate through the pages by using the hyperlinks in the top right of each page.



Individual vs Social

"The individualist believes that society works best through a focus on individual rights, freedoms, actions and responsibilities. The social thinker believes that the ideal state should focus more upon collective action and take a social approach to rights and responsibilities."


Individual

Social



You scored 42 out of 100 on a scale of Individual vs Social. This means that politically you are neither more nor less likely to value the need for group actions and group benefit over individual enterprise and benefit.

* 21% of test takers were more individual than you.
* 77% of test takers were more social than you.




Theist vs Materialist

"The materialist believes that all objective criteria to influence politics can be reasonably derived without recourse to the divine or the spiritual. The theist believes that spiritual beliefs are important and should influence government policy."


Theist

Materialist



You scored 63 out of 100 on a scale of Theist vs Materialist. This means that politically you are more likely to believe that religion and spirituality are superstitions that should not inform political debate.

* 53% of test takers were more theist than you.
* 46% of test takers were more materialist than you.




Big Government vs Small Government

"The big government advocate believes that governments should be responsible for regulating a wide array of social practices, even what might be considered personal decisions such as abortion, euthanasia, children's education and births. A small government advocate thinks that, wherever possible, these issues should be up to individuals or companies to direct."


Big Gov

Small Gov



You scored 64 out of 100 on a scale of Big Government vs Small Government. This means that politically you are more likely to believe that government should keep out of legislating social policies, leaving such decisions to individuals.

* 65% of test takers were more big government than you.
* 33% of test takers were more small government than you.




Nationalist vs Internationalist

"The nationalist believes in the sovereign rule of nation states, particularly his or her own. The internationalist believes that there should be more important international fora and perhaps, ultimately, international government."


National

International



You scored 33 out of 100 on a scale of Nationalist vs Internationalist. This means that politically you are less likely to favour international bodies over national ones.

* 10% of test takers were more nationalist than you.
* 89% of test takers were more internationalist than you.




Protectionist vs Free Trader

"The protectionist believes in barriers against free trade most probably due to a belief that this is in his or her country's interests. The free trader rejects such notions, believing that the system ultimately suffers when tariffs, subsidies and other obstacles to free trade persist."


Protection

Free-Trade



You scored 70 out of 100 on a scale of Protectionist vs Free Trader. This means that politically you are more likely to favour free trade over protectionist policies.

* 73% of test takers were more protectionist than you.
* 25% of test takers were more pro free trade than you.




Absolutist vs Non-Absolutist

"The absolutist believes that either a divine presence or scientific laws provide absolute truths about the world, which can and should be applied in practise. The non-absolutist may be either a relativist, or simply someone who is more pragmatic."


Absolute

Non-Absolute



You scored 47 out of 100 on a scale of Absolutist vs Non Absolutist. This means that politically you are neither more nor less likely to believe that there is an absolute truth that may guide your ideological beliefs.

* 17% of test takers were more absolutist than you.
* 81% of test takers were more non-absolutist than you.




Controlled Market vs Liberal Market

"Both of these categories assume a capitalist system. Assuming this system, the controlled market believer holds that government should intervene in regulating a nation's economy: wage laws, environmental standards, privatised industries and workplace relations policy. A liberal market thinker believes that such regulation is unnecessary and often counter-productive."


Controlled

Liberal



You scored 57 out of 100 on a scale of Controlled Market vs Liberal Market. This means that politically you are neither more nor less likely to believe that there is need for government regulation of industry.

* 78% of test takers were more controlled market thinkers than you.
* 21% of test takers were more liberal market thinkers than you.




Marxist vs Non-Marxist

"This scale purports to show to what extent you follow the thought and teachings of Marx. Marxists tend to be scientific, materialist and revolutionary, believe in class struggle and the laws of historical and dialectic materialism."


Marxist

Non-Marxist



You scored 69 out of 100 on a scale of Marxist vs Non-Marxist. This means that politically you are less likely to follow the philosophies of Marx.

* 92% of test takers were more Marxist than you.

ACCORDING TO YOUR ANSWERS,

LIBERAL


LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal

matters, but tend to support significant government control of the

economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net"
to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation

of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,

defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action

to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 20%.

Make up your mind, just kidding. I think its normal to waiver a little in your beliefs from time to time. Nothing is black and white when it comes to politics.

Ya that's because National Socialism is still socialism. :roll:
Marxism and Nazism are completely different. Its like saying The Roman Republic is the same as a democratic republic. Not even that since Marxism isn't the same as socialism :roll:. National Socialism will actually usually have centerist or capitalistic economic policies. Hitler and Pinochet are good examples.
