I didn't finish.

It just doesn't work.

If you choose neutral and moderate disgust for all questions, you come out 50/50.

Being disgusted by stuff or disagreeing makes your score more conservative. It's obviously not testing what it claims to.

Weird.

Did not work

By that I mean it was wrong.

Lem said...

I'm slightly more liberal than conservative according to the test.

Lem said...

There is an explanation at the end. Something to do with disgust saving our lives in ancient times.

Your brain is a Democrat
Conservative (34%)
Liberal (66%)

HAHAHAHA!!!! the lulz, they hurt.

Meth, I get the Dem brain results as well. This is pop psychology horseshit. Since nurses, cops, paramedics, and docs can stomach all this shit then they would all be liberal?? Stupid waste of my fucking time.

I don't need 27 questions, a few seconds conversation will do.

59% democrat

Maybe so, maybe so. Yep. In fact, I am very liberal. Why is it then that I so despise every democratic leader? And the entire democrat base?

I took this elsewhere (got like 3/4 Dem, apparently nothing disgusts me). A psych person said it's actually valid but what it *doesn't* count at all is that libertarians generally score even lower on the "disgust" range than liberals do.

That this may correlate to politics in some way is interesting but I can't see how it would have anything whatsoever to do with a person's ideas about *fiscal* policy or economics.

Julie Pascal said...

And yeah... how do they sort out people who've had "dirty jobs"... grew up on a farm... are a nurse or cop or entomologist...

windbag said...

71% Dem. Um...no.

Leland said...

Same score as Meth, same reasoning as Nick. Wife is a RN, so it takes a lot to disgust me.

I gave mild disgust for most, because I do agree that some level of disgust does protect us; but I don't agree that is a liberal vs conservative view. Well unless your bias is liberal are inherently smart. They aren't. Most anti-vaxxers are very liberal. You can't convince me that people that need safe spaces for words can handle a little disgust. Let's face it, you give a progressive chocolate shaped like poo, and you'll be the branded with some sort of hate crime.

Being disgusted over Vomit has nothing to do with politics. I'd be perfectly willing to kill or die defending my country/family but that doesn't mean I'd find dead bodies filled with maggots any less disgusting.

Because the democratic base is no longer liberal. Hasn't been since Billjob Clinton. His tenure was the culmination of a long transition to substituting identity politics and Wall Street money for liberal causes. The correct name for the Democratic base now is "regressive leftists".
