    I'm somewhere in the neighborhood of Gandhi. Pretty good company, if you ask me.

    Yes, with punishment, you learn right and wrong, and that when you do wrong, you get punished. Then you begin paying attention more.

    I've met idiots (in behavior) who were actually quite smart

    Also note that not everyone learns the same way, some people can still retain the information even acting like fools in class, or like they could learn what they want/need to know outside of class but just be unable to control themselves in a social situation.

    It's too difficult to make such a wide generalization like that due to the many different types of people.

    Let's not delude ourselves here. Corporal punishment is not a necessary part of learning how to interact with other members of society in a productive manner.

    It's a rather crude form of classical conditioning. That's all. Pavlov rings a bell on feeding his dogs, and the dogs associate the noise with food. A kid gets his ass whipped for disobeying some rule, and the kid associates pain with the behavior.

    EDIT: And how the hell did we get on this tangent, anyway?

    I dont like communism/socialism i.e left but I also like the 'between authoritarian and liberal' because I think democracy is allowing too many things, some things are just going too far to be allowed, at the same it can't be totalitarism, thus in the middle. The reason to go left is simple: you decide you will help people and all will be done in the name of people, if you wanted money and high class above all, you would be on the right quadrants. Thing is that socialists are no different in how much they help to improve people's living standard.

    No. This doesn't make any sense.

    if you are too stupid to get it without being beaten that might help

    but it makes much more sense to educate them in a way that they notice what's right and wrong themselves

    reminds me of this:
    "Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime."

    of course you could give them fish every day...

    and I have met people who can behave but are stupid

    In Norway it's illegal to spank your children (or punishing your child physically in any other way) if you don't like the way they behave. Also, I saw a documentary some time ago where some parents and some psychiatrists said that using punishment to correct the behaviour of your children is not the best way for your child. Even when the punishment is denying your child candy because he/she plays video games too much.

    Anyway, the test was kinda weird, and I didn't feel like there was a fitting alternative to some of the questions, but meh. Here's mine: http://politicalcompass.org/printablegraph?ec=-6.75&soc=-3.23

    If I were to compare with the political parties here in Norway I would say I should be in the red field. Too be honest, I was expecting to be in the top left corner because I strongly agreed with this:
    And a couple of other questions which I know the "red parties" over here agree with which the "blue parties" strongly disagree with.

    Communism FTW.

    Yep, I'm pretty left wing.

    Because obviously intelligence is directly related to primary/secondary school..?

    Do you agree with that perception of right and wrong or are you forced into it? If you ask me, doing something out of fear doesn't indicate strong morality at all.
