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 scores as a bargraph next to the averaged liberal and conservative scores.

My score: 3.8, 3.2, 1.5, 1.7, 1.0

Russ, "it depends" would have been my answer to nearly everything as well. I would have loved a short answer section for each question, lol.

Oh, and to that regard - that one question about treating everyong equally... My argument would be that "equal" does not necessarily mean "fair".
Finally got around to taking this quiz.

My profile: 2.2, 3.3, 1.7, 3.3. 3.5

Looks like I am in trouble here...
