third time I have taken this test

Economic Left/Right: -0.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.95

posted on Jun, 8 2014 @ 07:20 AM
Economic left/right -5.25
Social libertian/autoritarian -5.13

But I have no clue what it means.
I think it put me far too left, Others put me dead center and there's not one single gun arms questions at all.

Nice test, though I had a few laughs over some of the questions. What has, for example, astrology to do with my political views? And why wasn't there a question about my opinion on non-gay couples with an unstable relation being allowed to raise children? In what neck of the woods to people still believe it should be illegal to smoke pot, while smoking cigarettes and drinking whiskey is seen as quite normal? Oh, well.

Y'all of course already know I'm an anarchist. Don't need no frigging test for that

Moved a little deeper into the purple this time around. Always interesting.

Economic Left/Right: 5.44
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.35

I second the motion for a "Who cares" option to be added.

Note: this is most definitely a leftist leaning quiz, It doesn't ask key questions like gun rights, etc. I can tell because I took other quizzes and have gotten right leaning results (those were also flawed) but only one time I found an unbiased quiz and it resulted on me being smack in the middle. I can't find it now, but I can tell you that most of the questions here are leftist questions.

What does political mean? I'm not from this world.

It's a derogatory term for a mental disorder that causes a person to desire having control over others.

"That guy is so political." He's a narcissistic sociopath.

If you were smart, you'd leave this planet as soon as possible. The inmates are running the asylum.

Whoa whoa WHOA!

A) this is NOT my Batman glass, and...

B) that whole post is a drastic oversimplification of the situation.

When someone says of someone "oh, him? He's so political" that does NOT equate to being a narcissistic and possibly dangerous person! Being concerned with the issues affecting your nation, your continent, your planet, does not make a person a sociopath, or a psychopath, but it has to be said that there are a fair few of those in positions of power in governments world wide, and I am not talking about the current leadership of North Korea.

It is healthy and fair to understand that attaining power does not mean that one is qualified to weild it, or indeed that the person who possesses it is the best person to do so. However, it is not healthy, fair, or correct to conflate people being political, with a pychological condition which is often suffered by politicians. The truth resists such simplicity.

The reality is much more complex. One can think politically, and most people do at some point, without being fool enough to believe themselves capable of saving the world by setting it on fire. Personally speaking, I think politically about a lot of things. I think about the state of our tax system, and how much public money gets wasted on poor contracts with companies which over charge the government by three hundred percent on simple goods and services, while failing to pay proper amounts of tax. I think about how ironic it is that my nations government occupies the same city as our financial district, and yet my government seem to have no ability to keep an eye on the activity of banks in a comprehensive fashion.

I think about the way our schools are run, and I hope to God that our nations children have a better time of it than my generation did when we were at school, and I hope that aside from the experience of school life, that education OUTCOMES improve, that more kids can get the chance to go to university, and I am concerned that every kid that does get that chance, now has to pay for it, through the bloody nose.

I am concerned that UKIP are winning votes, despite their barely veiled xenophobia, and I am concerned that there is no socialist representation in my country worth a damn since the Labour Party abandoned its roots and its original calling as a party, not to mention being concerned that we have a Conservative/Liberal Democrat coalition government right now, which seems incapable of making a policy which will not piss off at least eighty percent of the population.

I think about how sad it is that efforts made to improve communities, can be blindsided by vandalism and theft, and how disheartening it is to be part of a project so afflicted. I think about my mother, and how she is approaching getting her pension, and how much of a failure I feel for not being more successful, and being able to provide some stability and peace for her, rather than what is happening now, where she works alongside me in the family business, despite her being in pain from her bad foot, and her bad back, and her bad hip, and a still undiagnosed event last year which basically appeared to be some sort of abdominal stroke, that knocked her on her rear for a while.

I am concerned with political matters, because politics matters. What does not matter is politicians, political parties, and the cults of personality which run the country. It is THOSE things which contain the corruption, and the greed, and the narcissism that you dislike. Thinking politically however, is necessary for all peoples living under a government. Failure to do so leaves one at a hideous disadvantage. I am not a wealthy person, so I HAVE to keep abreast of these things, because I cannot afford to be hit by a shot I did not see coming. I have to keep aware, I have to keep in touch, because failure to do so exposes me and my family, and my whole community, to risks which we should not have to face at all, but exist all the same.

In short, there is a big difference between thinking politically, which is good, and thinking like a politician, which is always bad.

Somewhere in between Stalin and Gandhi... I guess thats about right.

I took the test twice and tried to answer almost opposite each time. It still put me in the relatively same spot.

I do think this "test" leans a little more to the left.

"Oh my goodness! I'm a liberal? I guess I better start agreeing with Obama on everything now!"

Wow, nowadays I'm centrist (used to be right wing on the same test):

Economic Left/Right: -0.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.26

Or maybe partially problem with:
-nuanced answers (I rarely gave "strongly")
-authoritarian mixes up here authoritarianism and religion/tradition (anyway Chinese politburo would presumably for anti-religious prosecutions get less authoritarian according to such pool)
-a few question where my views are outside the box were not raised

posted on Jun, 10 2014 @ 01:50 AM
Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92

Yes, I took the test, but I don't label myself in any direction, I am all across the board on different matter, and I refuse to align myself with any one political belief or party.

What I found was how close Mitt Romney and Obama were on that.It proves what I always thought.

I mean please, Obama care isn't socialism, it is corporatism. The insurance companies are the big winners here. Sure, they passed a few things that make it look like it is good for the people, like not being able to be turned down for a preexisting condition, but who profits is every one is forced to buy insurance?

Interesting tool.

No way am I presenting my Simply put I am a hypocrite.

One thing that I think may be true is that people react differently out in the world than they do while taking the survey. Was anyone else alarmed that someone may answer some of those questions at the opposite end of the spectrum from you?

This is an awful graph. It doesn't even defined what the Y and X axis represents.

Typically u want X as government size and Y as social control.

That means I would be middle to the right of the bottom. A lot of freedom w limited government.
