    The Political Compass - Test

    Economic Left/Right: -4.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.85

    Kind of a long test, but I think I came out about right.

    I took this a few years ago. I ended up just left of the y-axis of the line on the Authoritarian side. I'll take it again when I have a minute and post my results.

    Interesting, Icy. Thanks for showing me that. I think the test might have changed since then, but overall I think it places me about right.

    I thought it might be some 'senility' setting in ... :p

    I'm afraid to take it ... my blood has gotten warmer over the years. :p

    Isn't posting results of this test here like unzipping your fly? :eek:

    I took this test before, and was pretty much right in the middle of the left-right with a strong libertarian bend. Not as much now, but I think that has to do with some of my views about the government's role in corporate regulation, which was altered slightly in the aftermath of the 2008 economic debacle.

    The test is pretty transparent. If one were inclined, they could easily manufacture a result.

    Economic Left/Right: -1.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

    I seem to have moved a little more to the right since the last time I took this. This test still seems like it's made by a left leaning organization.

    Economic Left/Right: 2.12
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.03

    I'd say this is pretty spot on.

    Not that it matters because I have taken tests like these before and my results are always different. These tests and their analysis tend to be pretty biased. This time, I hit dead center green, between Ghandi and Mandela...two of my favorite historical figures but I disagree with both of them on many issues.

    So does this mean that me and Joe Stalin would be good friends? This is pretty much where I ended up last time I took this a few years back.
