Time quiz predicts how you will vote in the next election
January 13, 2014 - Andrea Johnson
If you wouldn't darken the door of a restaurant serving fusion cuisine and would rather visit Times Square than the Metropolitan Museum of Art, you might just be a conservative.
That's the judgement of a quiz at Time that claims to be able to determine your political orientation based on different preferences. The quiz, which can be found at http://science.time.com/2014/01/09/can-time-predict-your-politics/#ixzz2qFaPb5X3 is based on the theories of a social psychologist called Jon Haidt. The questions are based on the difference in preferences identified by self-identified liberals and conservatives.
Haidt's theories measure how liberals and conservatives make moral judgements and also rate people on the so-called big five personality traits, such as extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to new experience, and neuroticism. Liberals and conservatives have different preferences and make different moral judgements based on both.
So how good is this quiz at predicting your political leanings?
