    Default Which political tribe are you?

    This test is focussed on British politics, but I guess is generally applicable.

    Article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-26689333

    test: http://populuslive.spss-asp.com/ASP/...ric&ismobile=n

    This is a link to a pdf that explains the results\research in more detail but you probably won't be interested:
    http://www.populus.co.uk/wp-content/...l-Britain1.pdf

    The six categories really reflect distinct types of personality rather than necessarily anything political, but no doubt the two have some link.

    Confident & comfortable, they are more highly educated, of a higher social grade & have higher incomes than the other groups. They are patient, prudent & tolerant but also think Britain is a soft touch. They believe people can get on if they work hard & that too much is expected from government

    As you requested, Lord. Now you can pass this info to the police, so they can arrest me.

    I'm very working class, I haven't yet gone to university, i'm better off than most people my age through a mixture of luck and just thinking outside the box I guess.

    I think people expect too much from government in that they expect it too fix all of their problems and prevent everything bad from happening. But I'm a big fan of the state and public services. I think this box implies middle class ignorance which I have to stress isn't me...
