The Political Compass
- This is probably the most famous political ideology test on the net. It places test-takers on a two-dimensional political axis at the end of the test. [62 questions]
The horizontal axis shows the traditional left-right spectrum based on economic values. The vertical axis places the test-taker on a social scale from libertarian to authoritarian.
The Moral Politics Test
- This test places test-takers on a 'moral matrix' grid, similar in appearance to the political compass. It defines users politically based on their personal morality.
The horizontal axis ranks 'moral order' based on one's ideal world view. The vertical axis places the test-taker on a 'moral rules' scale based on the rules one considers best for achieving their ideal moral order.
