What type of Aussie are you? Meet the 7 new political tribes
« on: March 01, 2017, 01:17:15 PM »
I found this quiz for Australians quite interesting. Try it and answer the poll! And feel free to elaborate in the comments. :)

Apparently the persona I most resemble is Ambitious Saver. Surprise, surprise. :p  (Though actually, while I may be a saver, I don't know if I would call myself ambitious.) After that, the two personas I resemble are Activist Egalitarian and then Progressive Cosmopolitan.

Yup, me too.

Interesting how it cuts up suburbs and cities into the various group too

Activist egalitarian, with progressive cosmopolitan a close second. Everything else was miles behind.

Another Activist Egalitarian, then Prog Cosmo, then Ambitious Saver. (Pretended I still lived in the last postcode I lived in when still living in Australian, my homeland, not NZ, my current place of residence.)

I wonder if in this quiz the careerist types are clumped in with the savers in a 'breadhead' category which doesn't capture the frugals.

Progressive Cosmopolitan, followed by (I think, I did the test weeks ago) Ambitious Saver and Activist Egalitarian.

I'm not surprised really.

One thing I did notice though that might have implications for Australian politics in the future. Are any of those groups a core constituency for the ALP nowadays? Some of them you could identify as a core Coalition constituency or others a likely vote for the minor parties, but there's nothing that jumps out as a strong ALP group. What do you think?

Very strongly activist egalitarian, followed by progressive cosmopolitian.

Even though I started the thread, I'm not technically an Aussie either, lol (don't have citizenship, but do have permanent residency).

Awwwwww, hugs for you! I'll admit there's a bit of a disillusioned pessimist in me too... usually when I look at property prices in Australia, lol.
