Moral Foundations Test

Have we done this before? It feels familiar. Either way, it was fun going through the questions.

Moral Foundations Test

Moral Foundations Theory, developed by psychologists Jonathan Haidt and Craig Joseph, suggests that there are psychological foundations underlying human morality that are innate and universal to every civilization across history. According to the theory, people’s moral judgments are based on six primary foundations: Care, Fairness, Liberty, In-Group Loyalty, Purity, and Authority/Order. These foundations represent evolved mechanisms that have helped humans navigate social interactions. Individuals, ideologies, and cultures each prioritize these foundations differently, leading to variations in moral values and beliefs. For the aforementioned reasons, Haidt’s theory does not recognize any set of moral beliefs as being objectively correct or inherently superior. In this test, you will be presented with a statement, and then will answer with your opinion on the statement from a range of Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree, with each answer slightly effecting your scores. Your final scores will be shown as a percentage for each foundation, along with an explanation of each foundation’s broader meaning down below.

There are 48 questions in the test. The average time of completion is 15 minutes.

Who doesn’t believe in fairness?

“Fairness for me, not for thee!!”
– Those kinds of people.

apparently I simultaneously care and not care :upside_down_face:

Some fairness questions were kinda weird. Should it be socially acceptable for a high status person to demand to be able to skip a queue?

I actually think yes, if they pay for it. But that condition wasn’t part of the question so I just disagreed.


I can’t imagine who’d agree with that. Should it be socially acceptable to offer a high status person the chance to skip a queue? You’d also probably get more yeses that way, and that’s probably a more realistic question.

Anyone that believes in the British monarchy believes certain people are allowed to “skip the queue” due to their birthright.

But should someone in the British monarchy be allowed to ask to skip the queue to buy theater tickets, for example? I think a lot of British citizens, even loyalists, would disagree.

For the most part I believe guns aren’t needed except for keeping the King of England out of your face

who is like me?


Care 90, Fairness 75, Liberty 58, In-Group 58, Purity 79, Authority 60

Would be interesting for someone to compile these numbers and see what our average is overall, who the outliers are, etc.

I think i heard that one unique aspect of how diana raised william and harry is that she made them wait in lines sometimes.

Care 75
Fairness 81
Liberty 87
In-Group 71
Purity 75
Authority 67
