When I took my first survey Political Typology, it said that I was a strong liberalist, a person that strongly believes that America's success is linked to its ability to change rather than relying on long-standing principles. Liberalists believe that good diplomacy – rather than military strength – is the best way to ensure peace. After taking the second survey it also says that I'm a libertarian, who abdicates maximizing individual rights and then attend the role of the state.
Many people have different opinions on political subjects. The ways a person may feel about these subjects determine what they are in the political world. I personally do not follow politics like other people older than me do, but I do consider myself to be a moderate democrat. Both of my parents are democrats, and they choose to be of this political spectrum because they feel like the Democratic Party represents them. They feel as they stand for policies that will better them as people. With me, I am my own person so I take in the considerations of my parents’ choice, but also make my own decisions. I do believe in some of the policies and ideas of the Democratic Party, but disagree on
Most of the people in America identify themselves as moderate or they do not know if they are conservative or liberal (Magleby 103). I would rank myself as a liberal on the seven-point-identification scale because from what I know of conservatives, their beliefs clash with mine. According to the political surveys that we took in government class, I am a strong liberal. I have always been against conservative views for as long as I can remember; my family, especially my very conservative cousin that mentioned earlier, did not like that I did not conform to certain roles and scolded me for it, thus, resulting in my resentment of conservatives and conservative views. As I grew older, I noticed that I had unconsciously leaned more towards conservative views as a child because I wanted to fit in and not be the outlier in my family; now though, I can clearly see the faulty logic that my family holds and that it is alright for me to have my own
I had my boyfriend who is a 20-year-old junior here at TCU take the Ideology Quiz. He expected, like myself, to be moderately conservative, and interestingly enough he also received the same results as I did on my quiz. He like me and 13% of the population is a “Young Outsider.” He also agreed that the exam was very extreme and as he was taking it he said that he felt that it was making him “sound more liberal than conservative.” We differed in some opinions on government performance, social values & race, and Foreign Policy & Privacy. Even within those categories we only differed on one or two questions. So I would say our political ideology is very similar. I also decided to ask my mom to take the quiz just so see how her results differed from mine. Her results were “Steadfast Conservative,” which didn’t surprise me at all. As we talked about in class, usually kids have very similar ideologies as their parents, although that is not always the case. Although I am more conservative than liberal, I believe because of my age and generation I also have some liberal ideologies which is why my mother and I do not have the same
I am going to tell you my Political Ideology in this essay today. I would like to consider myself a Conservative, but the number one thing for me would be what that person said and what they planned on doing. If anything, I don't really care if they are Liberal or Conservative, what really matters is what they are planning on doing, but I guess I'm going to have to decide what I am. A Liberal... Conservative... or Libertarian.
6. In your own words, describe your ideological views, i.e. your beliefs about the role that government should play in our lives and in society (Do not simply list your political positions). Of the positions included in the assessment, which ones are most important to you?
I noticed that while taking this Political Compass test most of my answers were either agree or disagree, very few questions I answered with strongly agree/disagree. For that reason, I believed that my results were more inclined to be on the non-ideological side since my answers were not radical. According to the test, I fall under the Green section that represents the modern liberal and progressive party; however, diagonally I am around three boxes from the center of the graph. In other words, I would be considered non-ideological since I am closer to the middle of the graph rather than on an extreme side of the political compass. Although my results were bit towards the lower left side, I found it accurate to consider myself non-ideological. I am still in the process of learning about economic and social dimensions thus it is too early to label myself especially as a college student.
Page 213/chapter 6: From the quiz, I know I am a Liberal who favored individual initiative and support social and political reform. Knowing a political ideology helps us to learn more about government and politics. Now, I am interested about my political
Based on my responses, this quiz placed me into the next generation left which includes people with liberal values. As a person has different political views towards different things, my views are also scattered between democrats and republicans in different prospects. I stand as a democrat while taking the views related to criminal justice and immigration where they are more liberal. In some cases, like the issue of gun control, I am in support of republicans as they strongly oppose the use of guns and hand arms to control the crime.
Whereas a strongly conservatives averaged neutral on Ingroup / loyalty statements, while agreeing with fairness / Reciprocity, Harm / Care and Purity / Sanctity and strongly agreeing with Authority / Respect(Graham, Haidt and Nosek 2009).
A population’s views on political issues may change as different circumstances occur each day. The environment around us has a powerful influence on the decisions that we produce and the views that we as American citizens choose to hold. After a semester in political science class my views and my political ideology have altered. Today I will explain how political science class has influenced my political ideology.
I would say that this is quite an accurate representation of my political ideology. Despite not having all the same views as the majority of this group holds, I deeply align with many of them. For example, this group is slightly more conservative and leans toward the Republican party, but holds the opinions of both parties, which is an accurate assessment. I believe that I am mostly conservative, but I also hold a lot of mixed views espoused by both political parties. The Young outsiders are largely skeptical of activist government, which I believe to be true, which proves the quiz results accurate. Environmental and liberal social policies are also supported by this group, many of which I also support, once again, consistent with my results. This evidence proves that I am consistently aligned as a Young Outsider based upon my own personal views which agrees with the results of the typology
After taking the, Political Party Quiz, I checked the results and found out I stand very far to the right on the political spectrum. This surprised me mostly because the majority of my family falls further on the left side. Researching the issues on the quiz soon after I realized that I have been exposed to many of these prior to the quiz. While on some of the issues I had a sure answer, there were quite a few that I hadn’t really ever heard of.
Upon entering my first semester at Southern Nazarene University I could not have told you my political ideology. I knew what my opinions, observations, expectations, and ideals were, but did not know the proper ideology that would define them. Through several courses that I have taken, I have become more informed as to the role that I would like to see the government take throughout society as a whole and in the economy. Upon reading the section of ideology in American Government and Politics Today: the Essentials I learned that the correct term for my ideology is right-wing Conservatism. I would like to see the government take action if necessary in the economy, yet let
