I never felt as if I had a “politic” but once I took my first political test in 2014, I found them fun. I treat them like personality sorters, like Myers-Briggs. It’s fun to compare but I don’t take them seriously.

Only has as much power as you put into it.

 A lot of folks are afraid they might be right – and then “what now”?Hidden Tribes is my favorite though. Puts me as “Progressive Activist”. About 80% right. Good enough.From that, I felt justified to align with Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida in 2018 primaries (closed primary) so I could vote for the guy I wanted (for a change – usually I don’t care that much).He got ALMOST 1/2 the state which I consider victorious enough. It was fun.So, I used it as a tool to ‘nudge me’ and I’m glad for it. Do I really think they “got it right”? I dunno. But it’s fun.

 It’s words. So I’m not afraid of the tests. I’m in charge of how I respond to results.
=====
 I don’t know why others do as they do. Constant mystery to me. So, I look into myself and work with that. Striving for authenticity – or at least faking my own authenticity as best i can to myself so that I can project as transparent self as I can outwards. Best I know how to do.

 I didn’t like some part of the ‘trope personality’ but honestly hit me about 80%+ of the way, and certainly more than the other six of which I agreed with parts but none as close as that one.So I had to say “Ok, ya got me – well done” :)
=====
 8% seemed small ’til I realized it’s probably over represented online but scattered in real life – which is why internet’s a flocking spot.

 It’s no worse than LEFTISTS, LIBERALS, CONSERVATIVES, ANTIVAXXERS or any other grouping.Tropes are hard to escape from being placed into by others. Even “No labels apply to me” and “I’m beyond tropes” is itself a trope.So I acknowledge that but don’t give it credence except when I think it’s beneficial to my goals in rhetoric.
=====
 Oh, and calling it cringy is part of how norms are formed.“Avoid the cringe” = norming process.
====
 But I’m not saying what to do for you. This is just stuff from my own observations of self. Of course saying, “I’m not telling you what to do ” can be perceived as passive aggressive which I acknowledge that it could be, but I’m not doing that in this case – unless…
=====
 Thank you. I try to keep the fact that what I say in conversations online have eyes reading that I may never know about, and so I strive for clarity for audience as well as having our temporary back and forth.

I’m continually cognizant that my words remain long after I’ve gone to bed or moved on and I hope some unknown benefit by some future passer-by will come of it.
