Left wing, here I am 3

There’s another questionnaire you can take online to determine where you stand on the left-right, authoritarian-libertarian plane. It’s like the Myers-Briggs personality test.

My score was:

Economic Left/Right: -5.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.74

This puts me in the left-wing, libertarian quadrant with Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi., according to PoliticalCompass.org. For comparison, George W. Bush is roughly 180 degrees from me in the right-wing, authoritarian quadrant. [See below. I added my coordinates manually.]

    I was -7.63 economically and -6.31 socially. Neat site. How did you get the image to post?

    The world leaders graphic was on their site, so I copied and saved it to my hard drive. Then I did a screen capture of my grid — it’s produced with Javascript so it’s not downloadable as a graphic.

    With a little manipulation of sizes, I was able to plot my coordinates on the world leaders grid. I uploaded the finished product to my webserver.

    Glad to see we’re in the same neighborhood. Not that I’m surprised!

    Rebel, huh? Well, I don’t hate you, just as long as you don’t end up in the high end of the y-axis.

    Anyway, I take these kind of tests with a grain of salt. They are too sensitive to the way questions are phrased and interpreted by both respondent and surveyer. Kind of like astrology or palm reading, but with somewhat more scientific basis.

    Still, I think it puts me pretty much I think I should be — a libertarian-socialist? Maybe I should move to Sweden!
