The IDRlabs Political Priority Test is based on a peer-reviewed scientific paper on the assessment of the operational concept of gendered approaches to politics. However, free online tests and quizzes such as this one are solely first takes and cannot provide accurate assessments of your potential political orientation. Therefore, the test is intended to be used for educational purposes only; a definitive political judgment concerning a person’s viewpoint and orientation can be made only by that individual after satisfactory study and reflection on these matters.

As the publishers of this free online Political Priorities Test, which allows you to screen yourself for gendered approaches to politics, we have striven to make the test as reliable and valid as possible by subjecting it to statistical controls and validation. However, free online quizzes such as the present gender political priority test do not provide professional assessments or recommendations of any kind; the test is provided entirely “as-is.” For more information about any of our online tests and quizzes, please consult our Terms of Service.
