9Axes, based off of 8values is a political quiz that attempts to assign percentages on nine different political axes. You will be presented by a statement, and then you will answer with your opinion on the statement, from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly affecting your scores. At the end of the quiz, your answers will be compared to the maximum possible for each value, thus giving you a percentage. Answer honestly!
There are two versions of the quiz: a full version with 24 questions per axis, for a total of 216 questions, and a short version with 5 questions per axis, for a total of 45 questions. Feel free to take whichever.
There are nine independent axes, where each has two opposing values assigned to them. They are:
Federal vs Unitary
Federal tends to favour stronger local governments, Unitary tends to prefer stronger national governments.
Democratic vs. Authoritarian
Democratic tends to favour elections and popular opinion, Authoritarian tends to prefer the judgement of the government.
Globalist vs. Isolationist
Globalist tends to favour international organizations, Isolationist tends to prefer avoiding international relations.
Militarist vs. Pacifist
Militarist tends to favour military action, Pacifist tends to prefer avoiding military action.
Security vs. Freedom
Security tends to favour government prioritizing safety, Freedom tends to prefer government prioritizing staying out of their lives
Equality vs. Markets
Equality tends to favour socialism, Markets tend to favour capitalism.
Secular vs. Religious
Secular tends to prefer religion to stay out of public life and government, those with highter religious scores tend to prefer religion having some effect on society
Progressive vs. Traditional
Progressive tends to favour scientific advancement and change, traditional tends to favour tradition.
Assimilationist vs. Multiculturalist
Assimilatinist tends to favour immigrants, if any, conforming to the national culture, Multiculturalist tends to prefer having many cultural identities in the nation
As I receive feedback on the quiz below, I've been realizing that there's several things I can do better, but due to substantial differences, it's not really possible to modify the website to have these new changes (which as far as I know have not been used in any major political quiz). As such, for the new Political Quiz I'm designing, I want to address as many issues as possible before I publish it and people translate it. For this reason, I want to run surveys ahead of time to get a better understanding of both what axes are important to people and any desired features. The second survey is here: https://forms.gle/f9K4yxc93JXcrro66. This will probably be the last survey, though by completing it, you will receive an invite to a discord server that you can optionally join to test specific multiple-choice questions for the new quiz. If you want to ensure your views are represented and that the features you want are included, filling this survey out will help me better understand and ensure they are included!
I've created another quiz based on feedback on this quiz, it can be accessed at https://sixtriangles.github.io/
