Thats actually a smart and logical way of understanding the question's purpose. I wouldn't say you overthought it any more than Moria did. I think he would have been better to leave that question neutral, considering it wasn't clear to him what it was asking.

I think the high level of Cynicism recording in this test is based on our collective ability to ostracize people for not following social expectation / etiquette, like when someone is seen as rude, or annoying, or can't be bothered to use the urinal on the other side of the bathroom instead of the one next to me when they're all vacant. The wording and generalization of some of the categories here are weird.

"Destructiveness-Cynicism
Generalized hostility to things not in line with one's personal values, and the devaluation of human life and tendencies.

Your Score: High"

Definitely wouldn't consider myself openly destructive / cynical based on that kind of definition they are chasing. I'll have reservations within that, like the example I mentioned. But, I don't really think it defines me.

I got average on everything except I got 67% on anti-degeneracy which apparently is high
which I guess means most people are degenerates

The test itself is almost as bad as the ideals being covered.

Anyway

Hmm... definitely wasn't expecting myself to score that high on the cynicism and superstition scales. I'm gonna take this test with a grain of salt like I usually do with most online quizzes.

...And here are the definitions of each score from the quiz, if anyone's interested:

Conventionalism
Rigid adherence to conventional, middle-class values.

Authoritarian Submission
Submissive, uncritical attitude towards the idealized authorities of the group.

Authoritarian Aggression
Tendency to be alert to, condemn, reject, and to want to punish people who violate conventional values.

Anti-Intraception
Opposition to the subjective and the imaginative, as well as a dislike of abstract art and tender-minded people.

Superstition-Stereotypy
Superstitious beliefs about the determinants of the individual's fate and the disposition to think in rigid categories.

Power-Toughness
Preoccupation with dominance-submission and leader-follower dynamics, as well as identification with power figures and the tendency to want to assert strength and toughness.

Destructiveness-Cynicism
Generalized hostility to things not in line with one's personal values, and the devaluation of human life and tendencies.

Projectivity
Disposition to suspect that wild and dangerous things go behind closed doors, that one's group is losing control and that traditional society is headed towards destruction.

Anti-Degeneracy
Concern with the sexual "goings-on" of others and resistance to sexual degeneracy within oneís group.

Total Score
Your total F score, meaning your receptivity to authoritarian/fascist beliefs.

Yeah I suppose I'm a bit cynical, but at the same time, people being selfish is kinda factual

I think anyone under 20% on that category is probably prone to getting scammed/conned which are real things that exist in reality.

damn tell me how you really feel
Its never been about what is implied, its about what is explicitly stated. It asked if astology could explain things, of course it fucking can. I can explain things too, even you can explain things. That doesn't make explanation connate with logically sound or even accurate in the slightest. The whole test is a bunk on poor logic.
