Political Spectrum Quiz for fun. I know we've all seen the one that has the four quadrants, but every time I take that one, it puts me in a different quadrant ... Last time I took it, I was in the Left Authoritarian one *shudder*.

So I took this one instead and got back into familiar territory.



So, yeah ... you kids get off my lawn!

I'll just place this here, and then prepare my running shoes for the ATS Masses, marching upon me waving pitchforks and fire-sticks.

I got put just above anarcho-socialism lol.


You're on the left and libertarian spectrum of the political compass! You question authority and are deeply distrustful of hierarchy. You believe strongly in personal liberty and individual freedoms. You firmly believe in a self-governed and non-hierarchical society with maximum individual freedoms for all. You support women's rights, gay rights, and liberal attitudes on sex. You, however, favor collectively owned property and an economy that guarantees equality and opportunity. You believe in strong communities and favor a cooperative economy over dog eat dog capitalism. You're a lefty, but you hate big government just as much as the next libertarian!


We got all 4 corners covered between us. Let's have a fight and see who's ideas are best.

Mine is not surprising, though my brow wrinkled when I misread statism for satanism lol.

Already s&f for 'you kids get off my lawn'. I just laugh whenever I see that.

Man, I haven't been called a leftist since...

...well, never. I'm gonna take it again. I hate how these quizzes force you to accept premises you don't agree with.

Such as: Do you believe gay couples should have the same marriage rights as straight couples?

Well, if I say yes, I'm conceding the premise that the government should be involved in marriage, when that's not what I believe. It shouldn't be involved in any way, shape, or form.

If I say no because I reject the premise, the question is worded as such that I'll just sound like a total bigot.

Still, I'll try it again. Just because I think it's funny to be called an anarcho-communist.



ETA: Ok, now I'm a "Right Collectivist". I answered two questions slightly differently and it put me in the complete opposite corner. Lol.

Some of the things in the paragraph that followed the graphic did not match me at all. This will not be perfect.

Finally we see the correct placement for National Socialism.

Usually we see that on the "Right" sides.

My quiz came right about where ketsuko landed.

You and I ended up in the same place and yet I disagree with many of the statements that I am being told I agree with.

Nonsense it is!

How about we play a game!

there are 21 terms on the page.

Everyone define what they mean to you.

Have fun.

I dunno. You landed pretty close to Nazism (National Socialism), so I'd say it's pretty accurate for you.



I'm teasing, of course.



I swear.

I wonder where each major party falls?

Find the Democrat and Republican platforms and try answering the quiz.

LEFT LIBERTARIAN.

The page did not load correctly for me after I answered the questions and for some reason refreshed itself before I could get a screenshot so I've lost the explanation down the bottom but it summed it up rather nicely I think.

Pretty spot on. This test leaves out some nuance like personal private property and guaranteed equal access vs equal outcome. National Socialism is also absurdly placed while anarcho anything doesn't belong on the right. Their needs to be a new term like market rule or something since anarchy is anti-hierarchy and Capitalism is dependent on hierarchy.

There's another version of this quiz where I always come out as further left than Gandhi lol.


You're on the left and libertarian spectrum of the political compass! You question authority and are deeply distrustful of hierarchy. You believe strongly in personal liberty and individual freedoms. You firmly believe in a self-governed and non-hierarchical society with maximum individual freedoms for all. You support women's rights, gay rights, and liberal attitudes on sex. You, however, favor collectively owned property and an economy that guarantees equality and opportunity. You believe in strong communities and favor a cooperative economy over dog eat dog capitalism. You're a lefty, but you hate big government just as much as the next libertarian! What do you think? Do you agree?


Because the questions are essentially YES/NO, the results are inevitably simplistic. I mean, who isn't 'deeply distrustful of hierarchy?' At the same time, it's part of the natural order to have a hierarchy and we can't have a functioning society without it - someone is always taller, stronger, smarter, faster or more charismatic.

I don't absolutely favour 'collectively owned property' and didn't see a question that could even infer that from my yes/no. Yes, I do favour an economy that 'guarantees equality and opportunity,' but within reason and fairness! Society produces people who are better than others at certain things; should they be kept at the same level as someone with no known ability?

I don't like 'dog eat dog capitalism' and neither do I like people who don't work (or pay in) getting an easy life. It's not a yes/no thing, is it?

Anyway, I went back in and went for the Far-Right answers. This was the result:




You believe in a strong military, an efficient government to intervene when necessary, low taxes and a free market economy. You value tradition, hardwork, and you tend to respect religious authority. You're patriotic and sceptical of people looking for a hand out. You believe in government institutions and you have a strong sense of belonging to those with the same nationality as you. You believe in individual freedoms, but you also take into account tradition and social order.


Aren't they all reasonable too? A weak military is virtually pointless. Who doesn't want an 'efficient government?' What's the alternative and, yes, governments *should* intervene 'when necessary' as we saw with Hurricane Katrina etc. Isn't everyone sceptical of people 'looking for a handout?' It's a matter of degree, yeah? We want to help a disabled person, but we don't want to pay for someone's huge family when they won't work or use contraception.

It's natural to have a sense of belonging to those from our own countries - same TV, same music and same things to talk about. It's less natural to assume all other nationalities are somehow 'less than.'

'Individual freedoms' are wanted by everyone and there's nothing wrong about having a Christmas dinner or celebrating a birthday - all traditions. As for 'social order?' What's the opposite? Disorder? No order?? Who wants that?

What we're looking at is really closer to a horoscope engine. It tells us what we are and we agree with it without comparing the results to other options.

I know what you mean on that.

They always have those statements that make you scratch your head and wonder what they were thinking.

There is one where you can either accept on of their canned answers or create your own. I forget which in that is though.

Sure it does.

The up/down line represents control by state authority. People on the right distrust it just as much as people on the left. What do you think a libertarian is?

Then the left/right line appears to be individualism/collectivism.

So you seem to be all over the idea of a collective with no state authority while I prefer individualism with very little state authority. In this case, both of us ought to agree that too much state control is dangerous which should actually make us allies in arguments against an all-controlling, centralized state authority.
