University of Virginia Psychologist Jonathan Haidt has devised a short survey called the Moral Foundations Questionnaire to measure ethical attitudes based on five hypothesized moral foundations. His results show a conspicuous difference in the moral psychology of self-identified conservatives versus self-identified liberals. The questionnaire measures harm/care, justice/fairness, ingroup loyalty, respect for authority, and purity/sanctity. The result page displays your score as a bargraph next to the averaged liberal and conservative scores. (Its the top one on the list.)
My score: 3.8, 3.2, 1.5, 1.7, 1.0
