Well I very rarely post to any of the political forums on ATS. Perhaps my graph illustrates why.



Kali we could be ideological sisters!

Sisters? I'm female too and in the same quadrant. I wonder if the test has a slight sex bias?

How many males and how many females are in each quad?

Trio of women but there are at least five others in the quad too - so 8 in all so far (if I counted right).

I have a friend and he is a college political science professor and he always has his students take this test.

I fall pretty close to the dalai lama and mandela. Left libertarian here. Female here, if someone's keeping track.

I think that's a bit too far right for Ron Paul too, but he IS definitely bottom half.

I wouldn't go pokin' around too much on sex/quadrant relation. You cold turn a corner and the next thing you know Margaret Thatcher is the last thing you see before they black bag you.

You'll barely be able to hear her say "She thought we were sisters muahahah" over the sound of your flip flops dragging across stone floors.

She'd need a step-ladder to bag me.


There will always be bossy-women, control freaks, and aggressive females. They are just less common overall. I think Margaret worked well with Jelly-Beans (Ronald Reagan). The world needs all kinds.

American Politics it ain't just a video game called Pong.

That's mine, btw. I think it's a decent place to be, so I don't mind posting it.

So, yeah, almost exactly the same spot as yours. This test surprises me quite a bit, actually. Makes me feel good to see that my dot is close to Gandhi's, though. Tells me I may be hippie-dippy, but I'm at least in good company.

So according to your chart on where the candidates stand. Are you pointing out that people are more in tune with the Ron Paul ideals then anyone else who is an authoritarian? Because it seems like the people are on the same level as Ron Paul while Obama and the other candidates are on the top right...
