Political Correctness Personality Pattern Test

Researchers Neduva, Kanevsky, and Lerner studied the lives of so-called politically correct people in order to identify the personality traits that promote support for political correctness, as well as opposition to it. In their work, they identified three basic patterns related to political correctness, and their findings were published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Medical Hypotheses. Based on their work, this test will predict your attitude to political correctness based on your personality (and not your actual political beliefs).

Do you fit any of the political correctness personality patterns? For each of the following items, indicate your level of agreement below.

Question 1 of 32

I sometimes do not understand why people are not able to compromise and reach a consensus – even with regard to divisive topics like immigration and climate change.

The PCPP framework was developed by researchers who study morality, ethics, psychology, and politics in an effort to understand human behavior and individual differences in depth. As a social science framework, the Political Correctness Personality Patterns allow for the testing of personality related to hypotheses about individual differences, political correctness, and human nature.

This test has been made with the aid of professional political and social science analysts, as well as respondents from all sides of the political spectrum. Even so, please keep in mind that tests are merely indicators — a first peek at the system to get you started.

Political Correctness Personality Pattern tests, whether they are university-level or "official" tests used in academic research, or free online professional tests like this one, are indicators to help give you a clue as to the nature of your political correctness (or lack thereof), as well as your moral and ethical standpoints, based on the Political Correctness Personality Pattern framework. In matching your personality with politically correct segments, as found in Western democracies, this test draws upon state-of-the-art, peer-reviewed social science publications for its hypotheses. Even so, no test ever devised can designate your political correctness orientation or political allegiances with complete accuracy or reliability, and no “Political Correctness” test can replace familiarizing yourself with the political landscape or the politics of your own country in depth.
