Take the Moralpathy Quiz!

Take the quiz.

The Moralpath.

An initial quiz to determine your moralpathy score. A = 2 points, B = -2 points, C (if present) = 1 point, D (if present) = -1 point. Add together all of your positive and negative points to calculate your final score.

1. You are President of the United States. A foreign power has launched a nuclear first strike against the USA, destroying a significant portion of America’s nuclear weapons, but leaving sufficient such weapons unscathed so as to allow you to launch a retaliatory strike, which would destroy the majority of that foreign power’s civilian population and industrial capacity, as well as seriously degrade their military apparatus.  However, if you launch that retaliatory strike, the enemy would deploy the remainder of its nuclear weapons to destroy the majority of America’s civilian population and much of its industrial capacity. The foreign power, after making this threat of a secondary strike, demands that you surrender without any retaliatory strike against them, a surrender that would eliminate American sovereignty and independence. You are given one hour to decide; otherwise, they will launch the secondary strike. You would:

A. Refuse to surrender, launch the retaliatory strike, and accept the damage from their secondary strike response.

B. Surrender.

2. Statement: To achieve your goals in defense of your people’s interests, actions up to and including war and genocide are justified. You:

A. Agree.

B. Disagree.

3. Your view of morality is:

A. I am a strictly moral person but the moral standards I follow are my own, not society’s.

B. I am amoral; I do as I please independent of any morality whatsoever.

C. I am a strictly moral person, following typical societal standards.

D. I try and follow societal standards of morality, but often fail to live up to them.

4. You are a member of a movement and/or organization. You have some fundamental disagreements with that movement’s and/or organization’s ideology and/or tactics. To openly criticize that entity and its leadership would likely mean that you would lose influence, friends, and associates, possibly no longer being considered part of that entity. Speaking out privately may result in the leadership losing confidence in you and would also be “politically” damaging to you, but not as bad as doing so publicly. Going along with the ideology and/or approach, even though you disagree and are sure that it is wrong and destructive of the entity’s objectives, would preserve your place in the entity. You would:

A. Speak out publicly, either from the outset or after private intervention failed.

B. You would go along with what you think is wrong to preserve your position.

C. You would speak out privately only, but do so strongly and consistently.

D. You would make some mild private criticisms but not push the issue too hard.

5. Those who know you think that you are:

A. Bluntly outspoken, particularly on issues that revolve around your perceptions of right and wrong.

B. You project a sense of getting along with everyone.

C. You sometimes speak out diplomatically on issues of importance to you.

D. You only speak out on issues that affect you personally, but you are outspoken on these.

6. Doing the right thing, according to your perception, even if it may harm you in some way, as opposed to always promoting your own personal interests no matter the cost:

A. You do the right thing.

B. You always promote your own interests, regardless of the damage to others.

C. You rarely do the right thing.

D. You care about yourself only, but you try to minimize the damage to others, if for no other reason than to preserve your reputation.
