Heh

I like to think or myself as an anarchist and a communist.


If you're an anarchist communist where does that leave me?

I think the new graphs need a new thread.

Also, muhahaha, welcome to the Dark Side™ Feud. :P

Whenever I do this I always end up in the extreme bottom left.

Got
Economic -9
Social -10
this time

Which would probably place me somewhere near Nestor Makhno were he on there...

Well, you're still in the authoritarian square so you can administer some good old fashioned justice!

Since it's been over a year since I last took this, I thought it might be interesting to, like some other people have, take the test again.

The result this time was;
Economic Left/Right: -3.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51

Does this mean I'm becoming less radical? Many of the questions are poorly worded and evoke a sense of "well there's a possibility that..." etc etc, where as, some subjects I'm still very hard line on, most of which are social issues, which relatively explains figures. Currently, the only person who seems to have really "changed" in any way is acknowledgable way is Fued, coming towards the left with most of the rest of us, but not really moving as much towards libertarianism, which is a shame, since that's the direction I would have ended up liking him at least a little more in!

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: 4.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.31

Some poorly worded questions. People writing questions like these don't realize that they interject their own predjudice in the word choice. I suppose that is unavoidable though.

To some extent it's deliberate.

I am in a rather extremist mood at the moment, it would seem.

strongdl: can you provide an example of a biased question or poorly worded question?

I created another graph for lulz, this time a difference graph showing the offsets only.

Note that this graph should be read differently from the others. For example, this graph does not state that Feud is a left libertarian. :P It only says that over time, he has become more left and more libertarian (alternatively, less right and less authoritarian).

This brings an interesting thought to mind. In a year from now, bump the thread, have people re-take the test and then plot an "end of life" position based on the three values for the person. Of course, large assumptions would be made, but it might be interesting anyway.

This new graph confuses me, explain it in non-graph-geek language. :P
