    I still like classical music more than country (unless the classical music was written after 1950 -ugh!!!!) - that wasn't close

    This is total nonsense. I got:

    The Left 80% | 20% The Right

    I've heard plenty of psychologists say there is a correlation between being open to new experiences and being liberal and structure/authority to being conservative. I assume that is what this is getting at. But I don't think anyone would accuse me of being progressive. I am almost always lumped in with republicans by coworkers. I am pro free market, pro limited government, pro property rights, pro 2nd amendment, and pro self reliance. Being open to new experiences doesn't make me a progressive (although it certainly doesn't make me a conservative).

    Somewhat right-wing, 65-35.

    Some of those questions are dumb. Read a book about sports or music? Both are awesome, why do I have to choose?

    Solidly right-wing 70/30. I answere “discipline” on the “what should you teach your kids” question. Kindness is for pansies like SeattleUte.

    Libertarian minds think alike. Although who the hell would eat monkey? That's too close to people for me. That's the one experience I am not open to.

    This survey seems full of stereotypes. When I look at the definitions, I would expect 10 | 90. I'm good with some nurture and kindness and some participatory democracy. Also, conservative people can like arugula and prefer classical over country music.

    Yeah, and the "under certain circumstances" makes that question weird. If you put a gun to my head I'd take a bite.

    I got 50/50. The questions aren't structured very well. Lots of poorly designed answers playing into stereotypes.
    "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein."

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.
