This test has been made on the basis of the work of Hans Jurgen Eysenck, Ph.D. and further developed by political analysts and respondents from all sides of the political spectrum. Even so, please keep in mind that Eysenck’s theory of psychological politics is not without its critics. Most notably, some academics contend that his theory of left-wing authoritarianism is invalid.
