Who else has taken the Kiwi meter survey. Apparently I am a Patriot according to the results.

 

Makes for some interesting reading.

Highly recommended  smile

You are a skeptical patriotic globalist - the survey never lies.

I'll let the GCSB fill out the survey for me. They should be able to get enough info without needing to fire up too many satellites. wink





Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I am a globalist. To be frank, I wouldn't know how to live with myself if I were somehow defined as a Kiwi patriot. I find the concept of being a patriot and all that it represents utterly reprehensible.

An Import since 1978 and having seen the destruction of values , I'm proud of what NZ stands for (although sad to see it slowly eroding away). Yep, I am very proud to be classed as a Traditionalist -

 

 

 

YOUR CLOSEST FIT
Traditionalist
Along with 14% of Kiwis
Traditionalist are enthusiastic supporters of the Kiwi way of life and its sport culture. They believe in upholding traditional New Zealand values and in preserving the nation’s cultural heritage.

 

New Zealand's British heritage features relatively prominently in Traditionalists' conception of national identity, and they are more receptive to the British monarchy and the Commonwealth than are most other New Zealanders. Traditionalists tend to believe that the contributions of Māori to New Zealand's national identity are overstated, and prefer that religious and ethnic minorities integrate more deeply into mainstream Kiwi society. Traditionalists believe that New Zealanders should be regarded as individuals rather than as members of any particular religious or ethnic group. They generally feel that political correctness has gone too far.

 

Traditionalists often think that New Zealanders should focus their attention on their communities and are the least likely among Kiwis to express a sense of belonging to a more global community. They express concern that foreign influences are negatively affecting the Kiwi way of life, which is reflected in their scepticism of the value of immigration to Kiwi society. Traditionalists frequently believe that New Zealand's culture is changing too fast and that the values that have kept New Zealand strong need to remain at core of its national identity.

Interestingly, along with me, seems there is reasonable support for the flag to be changed. If the poll was truly representative and the election held today we would be new flag owners!Yay!

 

 I'm a patriot and proud of it. I found some of the questions difficult to answer, but end the end went with gut feeling.
