Their result for The Internal and External Politics Test ...

The Liberal

Public and private views match.

Some might call you a bleeding heart, but to you, the blood flowing means you're alive and aware. There are certain freedoms that you hold dear, and others that you believe should be sacrificed for the common good. You want to help the downtrodden and deeply resent when others, especially those who have more ability, don't do the same. Your political beliefs are consistent with the way you live your life, which keeps you from suffering the cognitive dissonance that some others feel and gives you strength in your convictions, but it also makes it more difficult for you to see these matters from another's point of view.
