I found an interesting test that places you on the political compass.

The compass consists of two axies. One axis is the Left - Right spectrum and the other axis is the Authorian - Libertarian spectrum. You can read more about this political compass after you take the test.

Share with us what you find or not.

The test is here: politicalcompass.org...

Heres where the test placed me.




I knew I was pretty left but didn't realize how libertarian I am in my leftism. Live and let live and take care of others.

Scroll down further.




Sort of between the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela I guess? Not sure how they got those two on there.

Not sure if I linked it right as it is my first time. I scored -4.12 by -1.38.

Personally I am not sure how I feel about it. I hate liberals and this puts me as more liberal than I would like to believe. It is probably because I am not pro-life or anti-gay. Damn my love of gay marriages and abortions.

The questions are slanted Left. Way Left.

I can't answer them. Many are not understandable.

I'm too far "Right" and "Down" and off the square.

It must be a trick !!

I figured I would be more right. I guess not.

Fairly sure the political spectrum of ATS swings with each presidential term, haha.

Right now, i'd wager that the majority are on the right side of politics.

Here's mine (uploading pictures apparently defeated me this time), I'm probably among the farthest right libertarians here.

I've done this test with family and friends in the past, nearly everyone regardless of political party (Dem or Repub), have shown up as libertarians, often to their own surprise.

I find it interesting that if you answer the questions as honestly as you can that the result is different then, I for one, saw myself.

I thought I was much more authorian then I am and when confronted with this test result, I had to look at it.

I find this test well written and unbiased. It doesn't seem to seek a result and if you look at the rest of the site you will see that they work hard on it and are not pushing any agenda other then eductional.

I recall when I first learned of the 'compass' it really helped me understand some ideas that I couldn't reconcile before adding the second (Authoritarian - Libertarian) axis to the equation (college can be useful).

I like your first result better but maybe the second is more how to want to be perceived. LOL

Completed all the answers and...NOTHING.
Gave me no result... Just - "All Done. Thanks."
Guess my views were not appreciated enough to evaluate.

I don't dig that left/right paradigm man it's like so outdated and stuff. That's how the man keeps us down by putting us in the square box of their dumb ideas.

That's very Zen of you - refuse the battle.

Just having a little fun with it, I was going to post it as xuenchen's but I don't want to upset anyone, I like him real well and I only get four hours to take it down if it insulted him in any way.

The test was a great find btw thanks.. And for me I think it was spot on.
