Political Compass!

Post by Current » Mon Sep 27, 2010 8:09 pm

Just for fun, a test of where you stand politically, considering both the classic economic left/right spectrum, plus another, social dimension, for authoritarianism/libertarianism.

You can read the introduction here, or just skip to the test directly

I'm fairly extreme in the leftist-libertarian area. Not quite anarcho-socialism. In numbers, Economic -6.50, Social -7.44. In pictures:

I, however, fit into it perfectly.

So many left wing libertarians...

I think I count more as a moderate than a left-wing libertarian. I'm almost dead center.

I found something better.

http://people-press.org/typology/quiz/

Based on your responses, YOU are a…
Post-Modern
Along with 13% of the public

This means that I am left-leaning centerist (centrist?).

What They Believe
•Generally supportive of government, though more conservative on race policies and the safety net
•Strongly supportive of regulation and environmental protection
•Most (56%) say Wall Street helps the economy more than it hurts
•Very liberal on social issues, including same-sex marriage
•One of the least religious groups: nearly a third are unaffiliated with any religious tradition
•Favor the use of diplomacy rather than force

Who They Are
•The youngest of the typology groups: 32% under age 30
•A majority are non-Hispanic white and have at least some college experience
•Half live in either the Northeast or the West
•A majority (58%) live in the suburbs
•63% use social networking
•One-in-five regularly listen to NPR; 14% regularly watch The Daily Show


I like where I stand.

Tried that one, but in many of the questions I disagreed with both statements more or less equally. Tried it a few times, depending on how I answer the questions I'm unsure about I get either Solid Liberal or Post-Modern.

And of course the quiz is made with American politics and demographics in mind, so that makes my results a less reliable.
