    An ideologue is an often blindly partisan advocate or adherent of a particular ideology. Take the questionnaire and see if it applies to you or someone you know.

    I'm assuming this is a joke post. As not only does the op meet all the criteria but this very thread is one of the examples!

    Tests are great if we're testing to see if we agree with what the test takers want. A society of happy populist lemmings must be easier to deal with than a gaggle of free thinkers, I suppose?

    Some of the interesting comments on an ideologue.

    - An ideologue often has what could be called a missionary complex-- they seem determined to convert others to their viewpoint regardless of the cost.

    - There is no such thing as compromise with an ideologue. Generally, an ideologue doesn't understand the concept of agree to disagree.

    - Ideologues never fight fairly, and this is because of valuing winning the argument over having a fair exchange of ideas.

    - An ideologue will often present their ideas and opinions as material facts, regardless whether there is evidence to the contrary.
