That's right.

I have the brain of a democrat. Not in a jar either. The one in my head.

17% Republican
83% Democrat

Link to the test

chartsme.com...

Now I know what happens to your brain on drugs!

Take the test. . . . . . if you dare!

HAHA Same here 79% !

ETA : From the source;
How does this work?

A 2014 study concluded that people who were more prone to disgust are more conservative and tend to align with the republican party. But, why?

Some scientists believe it's ancestral and that the adverse reactions were used to protect primitive ancestors from contamination and disease. This way a person wouldn't confuse drinking water with dirty pond scum.

The study measured participants' brain response to "disgusting" imagery using an MRI. The study could predict party affiliation with up to 98% confidence. The questionaire on chartsme.com uses Jonathan Haidt's disgust scale in lieu of MRI and imagery, so results are likely far less accurate. Watch TED Talk to learn more or read "Yuck!: The Nature and Moral Significance of Disgust".

I've got one too. But the owner never used it, so it wasn't missed.

You choose to be represented by someone that sold the most cherished US secrets to the communist in the 80s before defecting and you wonder why you are 80% democrat?

Smh

In Haidts study if the score is abnormally low on disgust, there chances of being a libertarian are very high.

26% Conservative
74% Democrat

The questions remind me of the personality tests administered at $cientology centers.

I took the test with the same results. Please excuse me while I go throw up.

Makes sense. You'd have to not be disgusted by a lot of things to be a Democrat.

I'm 58% Liberal...I suddenly feel like taxing something.

I am pretty sure this test will say that everyone is Democrat.
It's programming you to think you must be Dem, so that you think you have to vote Dem.

That was very racist. And xenophobic.

You must be banned-. . . . . . . sorry.

What was I saying?

I think so, too. I knew what the issue was and tended to vote "no disgust" but still got predominately democrat. It makes no sense.

These tests are silly, and people are binary special snowflakes. Easy to categorize people into tiny boxes, and lively to tell us all how unbound they are compared to everyone else.

It's kinda humorous.

That's OK, I do too.

59% to 41%.

I guess they equate openness to experiences to not being overly disgusted by things. I know I was knocked down by being a bit food fastidious. The ketchup on ice cream and sour milk killed me, and while the idea of seeing intestines doesn't bother me as I've actually seen them before in cadaver class. I would be very much bothered by the pain and suffering of the accident victim which is where the disgust would come from. However, seeing the disemboweled victim on the beach in Saving Private Ryan doesn't bother me because it's a movie.

Obviously, I think their correlation is stupid. I'm no more liberal than most of you who are also testing with highly "Democrat" brains.

Yes. And you need your own little padded room and special straight jacket custom made just for you.
