F-Scale: How Fascist Are You?

Post by Fat Cat »

Seventy years ago, the Authoritarian Personality studies attempted to "construct an instrument that would yield an estimate of fascist receptivity at the personality level."

This interactive F Scale presents that instrument in its final form of thirty questions, computing your aggregate "F Score" and subscores for the nine personality variables the F Scale tries to measure. Additional infomation, including the scoring scheme and an explanation of the personality variables, is given below after the questionnaire.

Test here: https://www.anesi.com/fscale.htm

And post your results below.

As a true Orange blooded American, I scored a mere 2.83 and am designated as a liberal airhead

2.83 Liberal Airhead here.
I think the only thing that got me that high of a score is my answer on the rapist/molester question. Kill those motherfuckers.
I don't have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor's dog.

The answer to the leading questions is always, "not enough."

I like how the preface to this test was LOL Adorno was a loser.

But if anyone is interested in the actual historical phenomenon of Fascism and subsequent unmooring of the term from historical reality, this is the book:

No, I'm afraid it's official. You're American now.
