So this is basically an updated version of Political Compass, I got -0.40, -0.41 which puts me pretty solidly on the left and in the ‘woke’ bracket although not 100% woke x

-0.61, -0.75

Some pretty bizarre questions but they're more interesting than the political compass ones so I'll give it a pass.

-0.50, -0.52

The food self-sufficiency question was rather odd for a British audience. After all, if we imported no food at all, our diet would be somewhat dull.

Centre-left which is what I expected considering there were a lot more “social” questions rather than “economic” questions and I’ve always thought of myself as socially left but economically right.

-0.03, 0.61

Puts me on the "Left-wing, conservative" side of the scale, as I expected.

I appreciate that the 'openness about sex' questions have been updated to truly get a good divide, I have seen a lot more interesting debates covering polyamory, sex work, porn consumption and promiscuity over the years than I have about the naturalness of homosexuality.

It apparently is written from a British perspective this time, I put a don't know for the food importing one precisely because of that, Suedehead, I'd like to limit the global trading of food that we have going on to help environmental impacts but full tariffs and protectionism wouldn't work for a nation with such little agricultural diversity.

Which puts me 'Left, Woke' which I expected, but there were some rather odd questions and I confess I didn't know where I stood on some of them oops

I got this exactly as well (although it felt like a good 1/3 of my answers were 'don't know' or 'don't care' oops)

I agree they are pretty odd questions in part. Doesn't surprise me that I'm reasonably near the centre.

I mean, it didn't really tell me anything I don't already know. I'd say I'm not quite as left wing as these results show, and I'd argue that the Overton window on areas such as rail renationalisation and public ownership on utilities has definitely (from polling ) shifted towards these 'radical' ideas recently.

You scored (-0.60, -0.33)

This places you in the left-wing, woke square.

I would have liked some further analysis on what this actually means.

If you took the original political compass ever, they have changed the y-axis from an axis measuring how much power you want the central institution of government to have over society to an axis measuring, well, culture. Which probably makes it closer to the horizontal being truly about economics (regulated economy with services and safety nets on the left vs free market with low taxes on the right) and the vertical being truly about social (conservative and traditionalist vs progressive and liberally open).

So that score would make you centre-left, pretty much, probably for some kind of social democracy, against traditionalist culture but not radically so. Pretty close to most of the rest of us.
