Is this a circle test reveals a lot about your personality
A simple question could reveal a lot about your personality and outlook on life, a new study has claimed.
Your answer to ‘Is this a circle?’ suggests if your political stance is more liberal or conservative, researchers believe.
Those who answer “yes” to the question are more likely to be politically liberal and more accepting of deviant or marginalized groups in society, a study in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology suggests.
While people who believe the above image is not a circle would more likely agree with more politically conservative views.
The author of Psy-Q, a book in which you can test your psychological intelligence, said these people would “actively want to help” these groups.
Meanwhile, “No” voters would prioritize having a strong military and support a zero-tolerance approach to crimes such as prostitution and illegal drug use.
Ambridge said this was “broadly speaking” the results of the study published in the journal.
“In three studies, participants were shown geometric figures and were asked to identify the extent to which they were “triangles” (or circles, squares),” an overview of the study explains.
“More conservative participants reported greater differentiation between perfect and imperfect shapes than more liberal participants, indicating greater sensitivity to deviance.
“Moreover, shape differentiation partly accounted for the relationship between political ideology and social policy, partially mediating the link between conservatism and harsher punishment of wrongdoers, less support for public aid for disadvantaged groups and less financial backing for policies that benefit marginalized groups in society.”
This is such a simple question and that can tell us an awful lot about you. “Is this a circle?”
If you said: “Yeah, sure, close enough,” then you are probably politically liberal, and strongly support the idea of government aid for the homeless and unemployed. You are also likely to support same-sex marriage and legalization of marijuana for recreational use.
If you said: “No, of course not,” then you are probably politically conservative, and strongly support the idea of protecting the rights of business owners and having a strong military. You are likely to take a particularly dim view of illegal immigration and would come down strongly on even relatively low-level crime, such as drug use and prostitution.
So if you meet someone new and doesn’t know how to broach the subject of their political orientation, just show them a “circle”.
