Take the Conservative Personality Test


So, you've taken the Nolan Survey, and you've determined that you're a conservative. Either that, or you've always considered yourself a conservative, but you'd like to know a little bit more about your ideology and where you fall within the movement.

There are six basic types of conservatives, and the differences are sometimes difficult to distinguish. Conservatives tend to overlap in their beliefs, so pinpointing exactly what kind of conservative you are may be difficult.

This eight-question conservative personality test is designed to help you learn more about yourself and where you fall within the movement. It addresses eight of the topics conservatives care about most.

As you take the test, you may believe two of the answers best fit your perspective on an issue. If this should happen -- and it's more than likely that it will, simply choose the answer that best describes your feelings on that particular subject. This isn't always easy. For example, you may be opposed to abortion-on-demand, and you'll find several of the answers reflect this view. In this case, choose the answer that best sums up why you oppose abortion. Do you oppose it under certain circumstances? Are you opposed to it, but believe that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, it will cause a spike in so-called "back-alley" abortions?

Another question may deal with two different subjects, and while your position on these issues is listed, the reason isn't. If that's the case, just choose the answer that fits your position.

Good luck!
