Philosopher’s Morality Quiz

Philosophers’ Magazine morality quiz. It’s a weird one.

I guess I’ll post my results:

Your Moralising Quotient is: 0.07.
Your Interference Factor is: 0.00.
Your Universalising Factor is: 0.00.

Your Moralising Quotient of 0.07 compares to an average Moralising Quotient of 0.22. This means that as far as the events depicted in the scenarios featured in this activity are concerned you are more permissive than average.

Your Interference Factor of 0.00 compares to an average Interference Factor of 0.13. This means that as far as the events depicted in the scenarios featured in this activity are concerned you are less likely to recommend societal interference in matters of moral wrongdoing, in the form of prevention or punishment, than average.

Your Universalising Factor of 0.00 compares to an average Universalising Factor of 0.34. This means you are less likely than average to see moral wrongdoing in universal terms – that is, without regard to prevailing cultural norms and social conventions (at least as far as the events depicted in the scenarios featured in this activity are concerned).

In other words, I’m pretty much fully permissive, which in turn means the following: A fully permissive position rejects both interference and also any universalising tendency. I think you’ll have to read the site for yourself to really understand, though.
