    Last time I was about -9.2 left and -6.7 libertarian, but I'd describe myself as authoritarian so I think it simply doesn't ask the right questions (equating 'being authoritarian' with 'not having basic human decency').

    I think it conflates some of the left answers with being more libertarian as well which is why most people end up in the 3rd quadrant if they are economically left wing.

    I've done this test a few times (it takes a few minutes)

    Whilst I was a student I literally came smack bang in the middle of the compass on the ORIGIN. :rofl: I think this represented I was a bit confused about some of my ideals or political thoughts. Or more, that some of the things I believed were in contradiction to others in terms of left/right and authoritarian/libertarian.

    Check me out now.



    I guess it's interesting that as I've developed more of my own ideas on different topics I have become more 'left wing'.

    The test link is

    here.

    Post your results below either in the picture form or you get a score e.g. mine is:

    Economic Left/Right: -4.63
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.62
    Mine is pretty similar to yours, I was expecting to be somewhere near here.Name:  image.png

    No, it's because you don't answer the questions correctly.

    Well I agree with where I come out. I'm offering this as a suggestion to thedefinitearticle as to why he/she comes out so libertarian when he/she identifies as authoritarian. *trying not to bite*

    thedefinitearticle is so much in the left that he is actually on the other side of the grid.

    Wow this thread.

    This was back (yeah 2 months ago allow the nostalgia) when I, with my 3 gems, engaged in and created the platform for discussions and debates and actually spent time on TSR being constructive.
