Moral Foundations Test

A six dimensional political psychology test, inspired by the works of Johnathan Haidt

Political compass values

Moral Foundations Theory, developed by psychologists Jonathan Haidt, Jesse Graham, 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 morality 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.
