Re: Share Your Political Compass Test Results

I marked "Strongly Disagree" each time as an "experiment".

Result: Economic Left/Right: 0.0; Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.36.

Not sure what that means, but it doesn't fill me with confidence.

Re: Share Your Political Compass Test Results



The questions seemed fairly US-centric and many are really "non issues" in my country outside small fringe movements. On others it was difficult to chose as strongly as the quiz required - in large part I suspect because the typical political culture where I come from is more ready to compromise; we rarely go into the "principle above all else" which is so typical of US political discourse.

I've thought more deeply about this.

You are all a bunch of surly hatorz, regardless of your specific views.

The test therefore assigns you as "libertarians".

People who tend to be agreeable are characterized as "authoritians" / left-or-right fascists.

Also: if you love your graph and think it means something - shift yourself 4.4 points up on the y-axis and see how smug you are now.

I probably am but questions asked didn't allow for me to end up with a result that reflected this.

Far right corner is an ancap. They're all gone, I think.

Like, Milton Friedman would probably be just south of the middle and far right but his son would be the far, far lower right corner. There are no David Friedmans on this board.

Results here are illustrative. Although this forum certainly does skew left enough that it's probably exaggerated.
