    My results are linked. No surprise.

    Take it, let’s see more about where we are all at. Found this on Quora. (The place where people regularly ask flat out bizarre questions related to politics, speech and major issues.)

    And here’s mine…Took about 5 minutes on a quick pass-through of the quiz. Might have slightly different results with a little more thoughtful reflection:

    I think these types of quizzes are mostly irrelevant (even if sometimes fun). I don’t feel in the mood to answer 70 questions at the moment, anyway. I tend to disagree with just about everyone on many issues and am not really interested in finding an appropriate “label” for myself.

    I’d also wonder how they are collecting information about you on the sly and whom they are selling it to.

    They are using browser identifiers, mobile phone addresses and identifiers, then matching those up with other data to produce political maps and profiles.

    They will sell it to activists, political consultants, others who can benefit from that kind of data.

    My guess, and I’m not concerned.

    I don’t put much stock in these kind of tests, but if I don’t have to enter in an email address I’m okay with it.

    Just for shits and giggles, I took the test as if I was Trump.

    Funny!

    I don’t either. Often, they are fun, and sometimes insightful.

    Yes, you don’t have to explicitly tell them who you are for them to figure it out just by isp and some other info. No doubt this is used to generate annoying push poll phone calls at election time, or by Russians to select what facebook ads to push at you during election time.

    I also sometimes get pleasure from deliberately sending pollsters false information. The sad thing is I start seeing ads while browsing for guns and for religious singles groups. So I’ve made a habit of “just say no”.
