…On Your Morals.

Posted by Steve on January 2, 2010

Late in 2009, I discovered an interesting website, YourMorals.org. It’s a site set up by social psychology researchers at UVA, UC-Irvine, and USC in order to facilitate research into the link between moral beliefs and political ideology. Basically, you identify as liberal or conservative, and then fill out questionairres relating to morals or politics. I have no idea if they get good data out of it, but it’s very interesting, especially since it compares your answers to raw data from other takers. For instance, there is a “Moral Foundations Questionnaire” that attempts to measure the degree to which five bases for morality are relevant to liberals and conservatives – and tells you how your score compares to the average of liberal and conservative participants.

Just thought I’d share, since I like sharing interesting websites.
