Moral Foundations

This is an interesting website at which you can do a short quiz and find out which of five moral foundations are the most important to your own sense of right and wrong. (Thanks to Ben, for posting the TED talk that turned me on to this.) It turns out that political lefties see two of the foundations as pretty important, while people to the political right tend to see the other three as being the ones to follow. (But the response distribution is pretty skewed - a lot more political liberals than conservatives have taken the test.) Interestingly, of my top two moral foundations, one is stereotypically liberal, and the other stereotypically conservative. Which may explain why I don't naturally find myself in line with either of the major political parties.
