How PC are you? And is that a good thing? How politically correct (PC) are you? The Political Correctness Inventory (PCI) will help you to answer that question. On it, you will find pairs of statements representing the politically correct and politically incorrect position on a broad range of contemporary issues, all the way from sex and education to politics and science.
What does it mean to be PC? It means to adhere to the belief system shared by the most intelligent, influential, and attractive people in America today. By taking this test, you will find out how closely your own thinking matches that of the smartest opinion-makers in our nation's universities and the most captivating taste-makers in Hollywood and the media.

Clinical psychologists and psychiatrists are coming to regard those with insufficiently developed PC sensibilities as harmful to society. In fact, PC Deficit Disorder (PCDD) has been identified as form of mental disturbance warranting inclusion in the upcoming edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM VI). PCDD appears widespread in certain corners of American culture, where it confuses citizens and causes them to vote against their own interests (as explained by political scientist Thomas Frank).
The PC Inventory was commissioned by TheBestSchools.org and developed by a cross-disciplinary team with expertise in psychological testing, social psychology, cultural criticism, and philosophy. Our team has been assisting people struggling with PCDD for many years, so we are well placed to advocate on behalf of PCDD survivors.
Taking The Test
The PCI consists of 40 pairs of statements. For each pair, select the statement with which you more nearly agree. This is a forced-choice test. For some statement pairs, you may not feel comfortable with either choice, but do the best you can. The test is short and will take only a few minutes to complete.
Use of this inventory is strictly for educational purposes. It must not be taken as offering psychological diagnosis, proving the presence or absence of PCDD. Take this test only if you are interested in learning about political correctness and how it is assessed. Your answers will be anonymous, but they will be recorded and used for research.
