Why Use This Test?

1. Free. This online 8 Values political test is delivered to you free of charge and will allow you to obtain your coordinates on 4 major political axes, ultimately matching you to an overall political standpoint.

2. Agenda-free. While there are other “political coordinates” and “political compass” tests out there, many of them attempt to spin the questions to have the respondent come out in agreement with their own political view. This test attempts to accommodate all political camps as they genuinely see themselves.

3. Contemporary. Several of the most popular political coordinates tests out there were made more than 10 years ago and/or made in conjunction with specific elections. In either case, the questions tend to revolve around issues that were relevant at those specific times and not in the contemporary political landscape. This test aims for a set of questions that is more up-to-date.

4. Tested in several countries. The present 8 Values test has already been tested in several countries and used with success in several different regions, including the USA, Canada, and several European countries.

This test is also available in the following languages:

This test has been made under review of respondents from all sides of the political spectrum. Even so, please keep in mind that tests are merely approximations of wider empirical and theoretical landscapes.

Political quizzes, whether they are professional or "official" tests used in academic research, or free online tests like this one, are indications of your political standpoint. No test ever devised can, however, determine your political standpoint with absolute accuracy or reliability. And no 8 Values Political Test, Political Coordinates Test, or Political Compass Test can replace familiarizing yourself with the politics of your country in depth.
