Economic Left/Right: -5.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.0

Seems about right for me tbh. Not too extreme on either but not close to being right or authoritarian laugh.gif

For me :

Economic Left/Right: -2.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.92

I've always thought of myself as economically liberal, but socially conservative, so the above is in line with that.

I don't normally post in here but I really enjoy taking these sorts of tests, kinda exercises my political mind a little bit.

Economic Left/Right: -4.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.56



I've taken this test once before about a year ago and I think I was slightly more on the left side then.

Your Political Compass

Economic Left/Right: -2.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.46




I have some issues with the survey, as "neither agree nor disagree" is not an option, which would have skewed my results quite a bit. Still, seems to confirm my position as being the "wrong kind of centrist".

I remember taking this quiz years ago, I think the questions are still the same! laugh.gif

Economic Left/Right: -2.38
Social Liberation: -5.18

Pretty sure I've been more left in the past! (And I don't think my answers changed much)

Further left than I thought. Although I suspect that wouldn't be the case if some of the questions were different.

Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.44

Economic liberalism general means you support a strong market economy with little-to-no government intervention. In that quadrant, you're not economically liberal, you're actually quite protectionist.

Anyway, the test is bullshit. Who is going to disagree with "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations"? A more interesting question to judge whether you're on the economic right or left is whether the interests of trans-national corporation and humanity at large are one at the same, not whether you have to make a choice between one or the other.

I was using 'liberal' in the American sense, i.e. left-of-centre.

The questions on that test have varied a bit over the years.
