Political compass

For anyone who knows of this site, I took the quiz, but I'm a little confused. Sorry if I sound dumb for not knowing.

Economic Left/Right: -2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -.0.77

Can anyone help me out how what this means, where I stand? Thanks

I'd say you're just a red-blooded commie by those numbers.

J/K, I have no idea what you're talking about. Where's the site?

If you want any boom-boom you will. To even begin to get me into the mood, you have to cook me dinner and give me a backrub. Sorry, house rules.

Oh, and bring some beer when you come. I'm almost out.

I think everytime I take this test I come up with a different result.

Probably due to not having a "I don't care/Neutral" choice.

Economic Left/Right: 0.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.49

Bucking the trend of bleeding heart liberals:

Economic Left/Right: 2.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.67


Measurably Conservative, slightly Authoritarian. No surprises here.

We've had this thread about as many times as we've had abortion threads.

I was JUST thinking about this site on thursday. I wanted to see where I landed again, but I was far too lazy to actually look it up.

No prominent inernational political leaders are in the bottom right quadrant, which is the quadrant where the Libertarian Party would be.

That is also known as the DVDTalk quadrant.

It doesn't help that some of the questions are incomplete, some are too absolute, some include hyperbole, and some are based on false premises. It makes it difficult to capture any nuance with these questions.

The social questions were a little deceiving. I answered them regarding my personal beliefs, not what I think the government should be.
