I think some of the more defined ideologies, with central authors and so on, attract a very similar audience personality-wise. The same doesn't go for anarchism in my experience, i think it's mostly because anarchism is such a simple idea, and there's many possible angles and expansions on it.

Anarchy is basically a mindset shared by people that are prone to questioning the constructed boxes that are placed on them.

Most other political identities have sets of rules and doctrines to abide by - i.e. constructed boxes they place on themselves and other people.

Anarchists want to break down walls, while others build them ever higher.
