The Political Compass Test

For those who were interested in taking the Pew Test earlier, this one is more the "standard" on most political discussion sites. It has far more comprehensive results and more questions (with less arbitrary questions). Rather than lump you in a category, it places you on a 2D scale and lets you see where you lie in comparison to existing politicians and political parties in multiple countries.

ETA mine, about where it always is, right in the middle:

Economic Left/Right: 1.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.64

 

Edit one more time: If you post your numbers when you take the test, we can make a customized chart that shows all the participants on one for comparison.

Our chart so far:

    This one is much better.  I tend to be a little more Libertarian imo...I have my opinions on social issues but I honestly believe they have no place in politics, no reason to be "governed".  This may surprise some of you given my stand on homosexuality.  I also think we would all be a little happier if the politicians weren't constantly stirring the social pot to get elected.

    Or there are more conservies who post on this forum who happen to live in the Eastern US-
    I am a morning person, but morning in PDT is late morning on the east coast.
