    That's me, it's around the same as the Dalai Lama, which I found rather unsettling.

    Well you see I don't spend every given moment on this board making mental notes of the new threads, in order that I never repeat one. Given that there's nothing in related threads, I thought I was safe. But clearly I'm a fool who deserves random :rolleyes: from strangers.

    There was a really noticeable long thread on it. I would have thought a regular user would notice it. To make you feel better, i thought i was pretty centre in my views...but am consdierably left - how annoying! All those years of being labelled left...and it's true!

    Economic Left/Right: 1.25
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.28

    I expect most people who know me would place me a lot further right and a bit more liberal. A lot of the questions were very badly worded. E.g. "what's good for the most successful corporations is always, ultimately, good for all of us." I'm guessing that it moved me further to the left for disagreeing with that, but I don't see how anyone in their right mind could possibly claim that this is true.

    That's what annoyed me so much. I'm not a lefty, I just am quite opinionated on a few social issues, but at the same time am quite a right winger when it comes to economic beliefs.

    Perhaps we can unite our efforts... we have a common goal after all...
