Post Modern Political Leanings

I don’t get into a lot of political talk. I have an Uncle who loves discussions of politics, not individual issues but politics itself. My ex-husband used to be interested as well. He looked for labels to describe political leanings, points of view. I still don’t know where I fit in. Here, in Canada, we don’t have Republican and Democratic. We have Liberal and Conservative as the two main parties, but there are others: NDP being one which is beginning to gain ground. The Green Party is still pretty new but also picked up their pace this month in the latest election.

Anyway, Bev posted a link to Political Typology and I took the quiz. I came out as Post Modern. I’m not really sure what meaning this has but it does sound pretty impressive in a sci fi way. I’ve cut and pasted the description from the site. Some of it is on the mark, some of it is interesting and some is way off base. For instance, I’ve never watched The Daily Show and I don’t see myself as all that liberal when it comes to social issues.

You Are…

From yet another personality quiz. Idealist Healer

You are introspective, cooperative, informative, and attentive. Your tranquil and reserved exterior masks a passionate inner life. You care deeply about causes that interest you and often pursue those causes with selfless devotion. You are highly compassionate and empathetic to the needs of others, seeking to bring peace, health, and integrity to your companions and to society at large. You want to heal the problems that trouble individuals and correct the conflicts that divide social groups.

You tend to be private and have a strong sense of right and wrong and an idealistic worldview. You are deeply committed to things that are positive or good and are inspired to make extraordinary sacrifices in attempts to achieve your ideals. You are prone to errors of fact as you follow your feelings more than you follow logical analysis. However, following your feelings also means that you seldom make errors of feeling.

You were often misunderstood as a child. In practical minded families, your devotion to idealism may be frowned upon and even punished. Most other role variants can shrug off the parental expectations that don’t fit them, but you are greatly affected by it. You want to please your parents and siblings and, in attempt to do this, you may mask or hide your differences. This can create inner turmoil within yourself. You are often better at detecting this inner turmoil than other role variants. You seek unity of mind, body and spirit, perhaps because of the inner turmoil caused during your upbringing.

You are adaptable, patient with complicated situations, and welcoming of new ideas and information. You are impatient with routine details. As you are aware of people’s feelings, you relate well with others. You are also comfortable working alone given your private nature.
