Integration Activity 1- Discovering Your Political Ideology


After reading the sections of chapters 1 & 20 regarding the different political ideologies, you might have begun to question your own political ideology. Are you conservative, liberal, libertarian? In this Integration Activity, you will have the opportunity take a political ideology online assessment, report your results, and reflect upon the whole process.

Instructions to complete political ideology assessment

1. Follow the link http://typology.people-press.org/typology/

2. Select “Take the Quiz”.

3. Answer the questions as honestly as you can. Feel free to look up any terms used in the questions that you do not understand.

4. After responding to the questions, select “See Where You Fit”.

Instructions to complete IA1

1. Identify what typology you were categorized as. The possible typologies include: Staunch Conservatives, Main Street Republicans, Libertarians, Disaffecteds, Post-Moderns, New Coalition Democrats, Hard-Pressed Democrats, Solid Liberals, & Bystanders. Read the description of the typology you fell into.

2. Next, answer the following questions after reading your results:

a. Do feel you were placed in the right typology? Read the “Basic Description” and “ Defining Values” of the typology you were placed in and indicate to me whether or not you feel this is an accurate description of you. For instance, if you think the assessment “somewhat” accurate in your placement, explain why. The same is true if you completely agree or disagree with your results. Details=Points!
