I played. Interesting. It pegged me as a libertarian, which probably isn't all that incorrect, though I've become more conservative in recent years. Oddly, when I was younger I was even more conservative-- kind of counter to the "if you're young and conservative you have no heart, if you're old and liberal you have no brain". In some ways I'm more conservative, and in others I'm more liberal. I think I'm more conservative in good ways-- less gummint intrusion about choices we make that are freedom-related.
Maximum freedom, and with that, maximum responsibility. No social programs. And aside from people who are down on their luck, hit hard times, there are plenty of non-gov't sponsored entities who get funded by people such as myself who can help those folks get back on their feet, and "teach 'em to fish" if need be.
It saddens me how much money we're contributing voluntarily in addition to what is coming out of our paychecks. If it was allowed to be managed more by the private sector there would be fewer people in our country (and outside of it) who would go to bed hungry.
Of course, totalitarian countries would have to want to help their own people and allow said distribution, which will continue to be a problem.

You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

l am not sure of the validity of the test, but it puts me about where I like to think I am, although I like to think I am more towards a rational anarchist - but I am betting that wasn't one of their labels.
