I've taken this quiz before, and I'm a Wilsonian.

Wilsonian

You scored 9 Force, 9 Institutions, and 3 Ideals!



You are a true believer, a wild-eyed zealot. You aren't afraid to use force to achieve your ends, though you'd prefer to use the UN, and you truly believe that a country's foreign policy should follow its ideals. You mean well, but know this: the road to Baghdad is paved with good intentions. You are most likely young and idealistic, and you probably trust whatever your leaders say. After all, they would never lie to you.

"Classic" Neocon"
You scored 9 Force, -3 Institutions, and 3 Ideals!

You want to change the world for the better, you're willing to use force to do it, and you don't particularly care what the rest of the world thinks. On behalf of the world, I hope that your notion of changing it for the better agrees with mine, or, if it doesn't, that you don't live in a country with the means to pursue your agenda. You are probably a disgruntled former liberal who writes angry editorials that are published in the very newspapers you denigrate as elitist and liberal.

Yes, I do realise the term neo-conservative is now basically an insult. Tongue

Career Diplomat

You scored -9 Force, 12 Institutions, and -9 Ideals!

You like diplomacy for its own sake. On the bright side, this means that you are likely to avoid going to war (even if it means parsing apart smaller countries to appease megalomaniac dictators). On the not so bright side, the costs of such inaction are often quite high. But...at least you'll have job security.

You believe in using international institutions to advance your ideals, but you are not a huge fan of using military force to do so. In fact, if the world was only populated by people like you, militaries wouldn't need to exist. Unfortunately it isn't, and you will probably be killed at a young age by a sociopath who asks you to step inside his van.

Wilsonian, according to this test.  You can probably describe my foreign policy whose main interest is in maintaining the primacy of the United States in relation to every other nation while accommodating the rise of other Great Powers within the international system that we created out of the ashes of the Second World War.  I would be highly interested if (and when) China evolves Taiwan-style into a mature parliamentary democracy -it would take away much of my anxiety over its ascension into becoming a Great Power.  

As you can imagine, I am highly averse to adventurous wars that threaten to sap us of the strength and willpower in ensuring our hegemony, which is the primary reason why I opposed the Iraq War -or rather our initial invasion of it.

You're definitely not swayed by proletarian notions of ideals and values. No, you are out to protect your country's strategic interests, and you aren't afraid to use the military to do it. But what separates you from the Cheneys of the world is your desire to to use diplomacy if at all possible. Your paramount value (heh, heh) is stability. You are thus most likely a pale grad student with a superiority complex and a collection of Ken Waltz's greatets hits.

The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

You don't believe in using military force except in extreme circumstances, you don't want your country to get involved in any entangling alliances and treaties, and you have no ideals, or at least not any that you think are worth fighting for. It's quite possible that you live in a bomb shelter in Montana, and wear a hat made of aluminum foil (you know, so THEY can't listen to your thoughts).

"Chickenhawk"

You scored 3 Force, -5 Institutions, and -3 Ideals!

Excuse me while I go take a shower. This test is flawed. Anyone who answers no to "countries should be willing to risk many lives and bear any monetary costs in order to spread their values and ideals" as well as "countries have the inherent right to use military force in order to change another country's domestic policies or install new governments" is not a neoconservative. I need brain bleach. I think it sorted me this way because it couldn't place me.
