How do you feel now? What do you think of the quiz? do you agree with the logic behind the quiz, if not, why not? Do believe conclusions drawn from the answers you gave are accurate?

I got 100%... but I don't donate regularly- I try to do the work myself by volunteering or by helping people if the situation arises. It's an interesting quiz!

The whole quiz is a thinly veiled attempt to guilt people into donating money to charity.

Make people say repeatedly that they have a moral obligation to help children that cannot help themselves and then try to make them feel bad if they do not donate money to a charity that helps children.

Pathetic.

Seems academic but is very biased hardly something you would even disguise as a scientific study.

Results Summary
  • In your own terms, you are weakly obliged to make a donation to an overseas aid agency within the next few days
  • This is (somewhat) contrary to your claim that you're not obliged to make such a donation
  • As a result of your responses, this activity has put you on the naughty step (you need to stay there for at least half an hour)




**** off!!

I got 100% but I am by no means obligated to donate to any charities however the site claims that I am based on my answers on the test. They were clearly making a comparison between the drowning child and the issues abroad e.g starvation.

Stupid quiz and was obvious what was going on as soon as the foreign child question came up.

70% because I don't believe in donating money to foreign charities.

55% for me. It's a grey area though because in my case I can recognise that I'm morally obligated to do the things but that doesn't necessarily mean that I actually would do them.

Finns can't be vikings! Just like Jews can't be pirates, or paladins

Told me 100% obligated, but it's 100% wrong. It has made assumptions about why I chose the answers that I did, and they do not hold. I'm not a moral hypocrite! Honest.
