Political Compass (redux)

This entry was published at least two years ago (originally posted on November 7, 2003). Since that time the information may have become outdated or my beliefs may have changed (in general, assume a more open and liberal current viewpoint). A fuller disclaimer is available.

Inspired by Pops’ recent posts about sheep, I wandered over to revisit the political compass.

I’d taken this test before, back in June of 2002, at which point I had a score of -6.12/-5.90, decently far into both the Left and Libertarian sides of the graph.

Interestingly, this time, I scored -6.62/-6.41, slightly further into the Left and Libertarian sides. Apparently I’m moving even further left in my old age. ;)

Along with a resurgence of interest in this test, Tim Lambert is collecting and graphing results of various blogger’s test results. By his table, I’ll end up in the same general area as Alfredo Perez, Ryan, Big Picnic, Dominion (James McLaughlin), Henry Farrell, Keith Kisser, CrowGirl, Nick Barlowe, PZ Myers, and Paul Setzer.

  1. looks like we are in the same neighbourhood. I scored -6.75 on the economic scale and -7.74 on the authoritarian/libertarian scale.

  2. I was -4 econ, -4.82 auth/lib. I’m like a raging right winger compared to you guys.

    But hey, I’m near the Dalai Lama on the scale.

  3. Looks like I’m just one point more authoritative than you, but other wise pretty much identical. However, I accidentally wiped out my score so just an estimate… cool though.
