Here, it doesn't matter what political party you belong to (if any at all) or whether you're liberal, conservative, in between or anything else you or I can think of. This is testing whether you care enough about the world around you to stand up for whatever beliefs are yours.

    Do you know the names of the two senators for your state?
    That's the least of it!
    What does this have to do with it?
    For one of them...

    Do you keep up with current events?
    Yes! I read the newspaper and watch the news on TV, check it on the internet, in magazines...
    No. In fact, I purposely avoid news shows on TV.
    I read one or two sections of the newspaper and will watch the news if it's on.
    I read several sections of the newspaper and sometimes use other sources.

    Do you vote? (If you're not old enough to vote, click what you will do when you are or would do if you were.)
    Always, in national, state and local elections.
    Why should I?
    In presidential elections.
    Sometimes. It's not like my vote actually makes a difference.

    Your fellow students/co-workers/friends are protesting something. Where do you fit in?
    I was at the protest with them.
    I talked to them about it and have an opinion, but didn't actually join them.
    The whole thing was my idea!
    I don't.
    I considered it, but decided it was a waste of time. What's the chance they'll listen?

    Because it's a requirement for school.

    Some friends want to start a Gay-Straight Alliance at your school. You approve of this (if you wouldn't, pretend you do), what do you do to help them?
    I agree with them but don't want to get involved--what if people think I'M gay/lesbian?
    I go with them to talk to the principal, but don't do much actual talking.
    I go talk to the principal with them, help them get a faculty advisor, complete other requirements, and join once it's established.
    I don't get involved. How much does this really matter?
    I don't get involved. What are the odds it'll actually happen?

    What do you do to help the environment?
    A lot of things around my house.
    Recycle, and try not to waste water.
    A couple of things, but how much does it really matter? I'm just one person.
    Why should I care? If I want to drive a huge car it's none of your business.
    Everything I can. From the trash I throw away to the car I drive, I'm thinking about my impact--and I try to convince others to do the same.

    And finally, would you ever run for political office?
    No. I don't think politics is for me.
    Yes! In fact, I'm seriously considering doing so.
    Why would I do that?
    Maybe... I'm not sure I could handle it.
    I couldn't do that! I wouldn't have the foggiest idea what I was doing! You'd have to be insane to vote for me!
