The World’s Smallest Political Quiz is responsible for many Americans’ first contact with libertarian ideas. While traveling around the country, I have often heard people say, ‘I never knew I was a libertarian until I took the Quiz!’
The Quiz has gained respect as a valid measure of a person’s political leanings.
The Washington Post, June 17, 2001
The World's Smallest Political Quiz is proving a revelation in Britain and America. For many it has exposed their true political leanings for the first time.

Take the World’s Smallest Political Quiz online and you can figure out just where you really stand!
Neal Boortz, syndicated radio talk show host
Give this quiz a try. It’s fun, and who knows, you may be surprised at what you find.
Bill Mann, Politics on the Net
The goal of the Quiz is to give a fast, fun, and accurate assessment of a person’s overall political views, and to place those views on a new multi-spectrum ‘political map’ that is far more accurate, insightful, and diversified than older political guidelines (such as the ‘left-right’ line).
The Fraser Institute (Vancouver, Canada)
I just took an online political quiz that you should try. It takes less than a minute, but it will help you look at politics in a whole new way.

The most concise and accurate political quiz out there.
Suite University (www.Suite101.com)
Many people find politics either too boring or too frustrating to tolerate in large doses. One possible cause for this estrangement is the linear nature of the established political spectrum. The left-versus-right system was inadequate to begin with. Political thought throughout history has never been so narrow as to be contained by such simplicity. The solution: the World’s Smallest Political Quiz. This quiz features two sets of five questions. Each question tests the participant’s idea of how much government is necessary. The results give a much clearer idea of where people stand as political thinkers than the old system. The entire political landscape could change for the better by taking one simple test.
Maggie Ownbey, L.A. Valley Star, November 16, 2005

The World’s Smallest Political Quiz is savvy and willing to tell you the truth.
Will help students uncover their personal political party affiliation and ideology. Rather than predicting a student’s political party affiliation, the site predicts which political philosophy the student inhabits (centrist, libertarian, left liberal, right conservative, etc.).
William Russell, Learning & Leading with Technology, November 2004

Very good, simple quiz to understand your political alignment — not based on party politics or labels, but on generalities and issues.

[The] quiz just might be the easiest and most painless way ever to determine what your philosophy is. In no time at all you’ll have a pretty valid indicator of whether you’re liberal, conservative, centrist, libertarian or authoritarian.
Kevin Saylor, The Knoxville News (Tennessee), January 23, 2004
We could continue to hobble along with the vague and confusing left-right political spectrum, but fortunately, something better has come along. This has now been transformed into an amusing little computer program called The World’s Smallest Political Quiz. When I brought it in to my office, everyone wanted to try it out.
Karen Selick, Canadian Lawyer, May 1995
A while back I stumbled upon [the Advocates for Self-Government] Web site. On this site was what they called the World’s Smallest Political Quiz. I urge anyone who may be naive or in doubt of their political persuasion to go take this survey.
Adam Fowler, University of South Florida Oracle, July 18, 2005
While there are many sites on the Web that profess to tell you your political views, this one actually does a fairly good job and, as claimed, it is incredibly short! This is a fun way to get more information on the different political ideologies…
W. Phillips Shively (Professor of Political Science, University of Minnesota)

You should definitely take the World’s Smallest Political Quiz to find out where you fall on the political spectrum — you might be surprised!
James W. Moore (Professor of Music, Campbellsville University, Kentucky)
This instantly-evaluated questionnaire diagnoses your political position, but instead of using the usual one-dimensional system (along a left-right continuum) to classify political positions, it uses a two-dimensional one.
Lester H. Hunt (Professor of Philosophy, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
If you think that you’re either a liberal or a conservative, take the … political quiz created by Advocates for Self-Government. As this quiz should make clear, the terms liberal and conservative do not adequately describe the whole of the political debate. They are inadequate measures of the complexity of political problems and the great variety of human beliefs and concerns.
Will Hawkins, The Student Life, Pomona College (Claremont, California), October 14, 1999
I have been using the Quiz in my American Government class for about five years. Students usually find it to be an eye-opener.

Alternate Solutions Institute (Lahore, Pakistan)
[Most political] definitions are simplistic and the differences between them are often more apparent than real. The most practical delineation of [political] thought would be best represented by the two dimensional grid used in some political ‘tests’ and such as that used by the Advocates for Self-Government.
Norman Council, Newtopia Magazine, April/May 2004
My students and I had a lot of fun this week trying to determine where we stood on the political spectrum by taking this Political Quiz.

I teach government…and routinely bookmark your website as a quick way for students to gauge where they fit in along the political continuum. I like it because it’s fast, amazingly accurate, and gives an overview of the different philosophies.
Robert Creasey (Government Instructor, Western Iowa Tech Community College, Sioux City, Iowa)
If you aren’t sure what your political ideology is, you can take the World’s Smallest Political Quiz, which places you on a diamond-shaped political spectrum (rather than the standard left/right straight line). Bear in mind that it is a libertarian quiz. Still, it’s a good tool for helping you to determine roughly where you fit.
