The philosophical conformity quiz

Quiz Image

A word of warning: There are not a bucket load of questions on this quiz, but because they are philosophical they force you to use more energy thinking. The philosophies quiz is not perfect but is certainly a good indicator if all the questions contained are answered properly and without excessive pandering.

This quiz attempts to measure the degree to which theories on ideal governance are similar to pre-established philosophies. Certainly imperfect but able to point you in the right direction.
