Political Compass Test
    #2700024 - 05/19/04 07:18 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

it assess your political beliefs and places you on a 4-way chart.
Not perfect, obviously; I had issues with a few of the questions, but it clearly tries to be objective and has good comparisons.

I think when we did it last time, not a single person was in the top half, and most were in the bottom left.

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -3.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.87

Right there with Ghand, Mandela, and the Dalai Lamai. Not a bad place to be, I suppose.

I score differently on that test every time I take it.  I guess I have no principles.

I think that test is bunk because it relies so much on binary absolutes. 

most of my answers to the questions were "it depends on the situational circumstances" 

but I dont think you could put that on a ballot :lol:

Exactly. And I'd like to know what exactly astrology has to do with political affiliation.

Technically, Nancy Reagan isn't a politician.

I knew you were gonna say that.

but she speaks at fundraisers and holds sway over public opinion

maybe 'politician' wasnt the right word. Maybe I should have said 'demagogue'.

Agreed, on many questions the way they are stated makes it hard to determine what they want to answer about. This probably pisses me off more than anything about most surveys.
