Morality Quiz

This survey tells what things you use to decide if something is moral or immoral, based on five sliding scales:
Whether the action causes harm, (HARM)
Whether the action is fair, (FAIRNESS)
Whether the action proves loyalty to a group, (LOYALTY)
Whether the action respects authority, (AUTHORITY)
Whether the action is socially "pure". (PURITY)

Quote
The idea behind the scale is that human morality is the result of biological and cultural evolutionary processes that made human beings very sensitive to many different (and often competing) issues. Some of these issues are about treating other individuals well (the first two foundations - harm and fairness). Other issues are about how to be a good member of a group or supporter of social order and tradition (the last three foundations). Haidt and Graham have found that political liberals generally place a higher value on the first two foundations; they are very concerned about issues of harm and fairness (including issues of inequality and exploitation). Political conservatives care about harm and fairness too, but they generally score slightly lower on those scale items. The big difference between liberals and conservatives seems to be that conservatives score slightly higher on the ingroup/loyalty foundation, and much higher on the authority/respect and purity/sanctity foundations.

I scored lower than liberals and conservatives.

Harm: 1.5
Fairness: 2.8
Loyalty: 0.5
Authority: 1.3
Purity: 0.8

I took the reasoning test, and was assigned to the third group, which evaluated my resistance to conservative or liberal beliefs. I scored a 100% in both categories.

I don't understand how this could possibly be accurate considering morals are subjective.

Seems I'm quite tribally-minded (and apparently take moral considerations seriously):

Harm: 2.5
Fairness: 3.2
Loyalty: 3.5
Authority: 3.3
Purity: 1.8



None.

I see I don't at all care about society in the slightest, but I despise doing harm to those who oughtn't to be harmed.
Harm: 3.7
Fairness: 3.3
Loyalty: 2.0
Authority: 2.8 (The nail that sticks out is the one that gets the hammer)
Purity: 1.0

First question I'm hit with:
Quote
Whether or not someone acted in a way that God would approve of.
Yeah, I'm not like a hardline atheist or anything, but this already seems silly to me. I would think the most important first question would be about settling the issue of the implied a/mono/poly/theistic morality scales the questions are set to judge measure me by.

On a side note, what the crap does "purity" mean, anyway? Some abstract synonym for virginity or innocence?


If someone cares enough to harvest my "moral" opinions for their database, they can go to the trouble of inferring them from my actions.

Way to read. The instructions included an explanation of how to answer each question, as well as an explanation of each category. Upon finishing the test, more explanation into your score is given. The test never intends to be a complete profile of your morality. It's a SURVEY used by RESEARCHERS to determine similarities and differences in POPULATIONS of a single and well-accepted measure of morality.

Define "well-accepted" in the only context that's relevant here.

I don't understand. Perhaps you can elaborate?

Was I supposed to read the "How to answer the questions thing"? Cuz I totally didn't.
