8values is a website that surveys its users with 60 questions asking whether the user agrees or disagrees with a statement. At the completion of the survey, the site generates a graph detailing where the user falls on four political spectrums based on their answers.
8values began being developed for GitHub on April 16th, 2017. The site measures users values on four political spectrums: Equality vs. Wealth, Might vs. Peace, Tradition vs. Progress, and Authority vs. Liberty.
The quiz began spreading widely through the internet on April 21st, 2017. That day, it was posted in an 8chan thread and onto Supforums. In the following days, popular threads were posted to /pol/  and other forums, while political types posted their results on Twitter.
As the quiz grew more popular, several parody edits appeared on Twitter. One of the most popular, posted by @adultblackmale, photoshopped each result to read a humorous action taken by those on certain points of the spectrum (shown below).
