    Socially libertarian, economically it really depends on whether the context is hypothetical or practical. Theoretically I would be further left.

    I'd thought you'd be farther in the right.
    What can i say

    Somebody else said that to me on here but i think my opinions on issues dont fall in line to left or right. I just judge each issue on its own . Sometimes its classed as a right leaning opinion, sometimes its classed as left

    Years ago, I would always score pretty much in the middle of the bottom right. If I did it again I would probably score further left, but like I say it depends a lot on the context. I think a lot of the questions are stupid though.

    -9.5 -9.5 or something similar. About as far to the left as you can get without being Karl Marx. Also known as being a hippy.

    This, some are really vague and basically say "if your not an extreme capitalist your left wing"


    I think the problem arises from the fact that they have based their political compass on American politics

    But the skew is the same for everyone which makes it a zero-error. So for comparing people,it's quite good.

    Yeah but it also seems to judge that if you are left wing economically by right wing socially it weighs it so economics is heavily weighted. It makes it harder to compare yourself to political parties or historical figures

    If you want to make such comparisons you compare policies, not scores in a largely arbitrary test
