I didn't understand the relevancy of a few of the questions - like I had one asking about the effectiveness of astrology.

Seems I've slid just a smidge towards the libertarian side since last I took the test.

And for giggles, here are our most recent federal elections:

Dang it, my views on many subjects have nuance and cannot be easily reduced to four degrees of agreement.

Still, here's my pic

A lot of the questions seem more about associated traits than about fundamentals of political philosophy.

Edit:
Mertico's ain't exactly got more nuance, but here's the results

Well I can't say I'm surprised but I'm annoyed a lot of the questions seemed like they needed more nuance than those four options.



How do I make it a png?

Try this one.

Here's an example I got after randomly clicking through it.

Political Compass is notorious for skewing everyone to the left and having awkward questions.

The questions are still too vague often, but why not. Not so far off;



@Mertice

Have to do that one, seems more nuanced.

How would they determine the examples like "U.S. Presidential Candidates" and "EU Governments"? Sounds like it's made-up.

I took the test and took it twice. First time as a more of an idealist, as I would like the world to be and I got LR=-9,AL=-7 I personally think it threw me too far to the left (by like 2 pts), and I hear it is a common complaint of Political Compass.

Then I took it but asnwered my questions somewhat more cynically/realistically and I got LR=-7,AL=-1

Will do the other quiz and post that later.

Should this preemptively be moved to the Halls of Lordaeron?

As for the OP, I've taken this test too many times to really want to take it again.

Tbh I've never seen a thread like this on any site where 99.9% of people don't end up on Left/Libertarian to their own/others surprise.

@Insider:
Fortunately, the OP doesn't mind, so .

@Ramses:
I combined your two posts so the results are all in one place.

True.

Even if we think ourselves right either socially and/or economically most of us are far more liberal than the conservative parts of the world and also disinclined to believe that the rich hoarding all the wealth while we work harder and for less is a good idea while at the same time not thinking they should be dragged out and shot either.

For example most of us would find it very difficult to live in Saudi Arabia even if they let us remain Christian. For one many of us are very loosely Christian or not at all, secondly we found the social mores very stifling and the culture laws hard to obey. And it is a very rich country, imagine living in some poor and oppressive African country.


Also my results on the 2nd test:

I will agree with IJ that it is also rather arbitrary but I have an idea how we can express ourselves better. Stay tuned.

I don't think it should be moved, however.

Data must be kept safe from flamewars.
