    Interesting, I'll check it out when I'll find time.

    I wish life was as black and white as the questions. For many questions I was looking for a button "sometimes", "most likely", or "depends". lol.

    My political views are currently changing the more i find out and understand about different aspects of politics. I was a hardcore Conservative a few months ago, but now i'm not sure about it all.

    I have taken the test again for the third time in 6 and a half years. I have always stayed in the Left Libertarian section, but I am getting closer to the centre of the graph (considerably more authoritarian and a bit more on the right). My social bias is almost neutral now (not by giving neutral answers though, but often by being very liberal in some regards and very authoritarian in others).

    September 2004

    Economic Left/Right: -2.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.87

    August 2005

    Economic Left/Right: -3.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.87

    March 2010

    Economic Left/Right: -2.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.51


    I am surprised at the description of the results. I see myself as an anti-Communist Neo-Liberal economically, yet my economic results are slightly on the left. I am all in favour of globalisation and free-market. I suppose it is because the test doesn't differentiate enough between facts and opinions. For example, I answered "strongly agree" to Because corporations cannot be trusted to voluntarily protect the environment, they require regulation. It's not that I am in favour of regulations, just that I am realistic/cynical enough to know that corporations will generally seek profits even if it means destroying the environment. That's what history has taught us. It's a fact, not my personal opinion.

    When I compare myself with famous politicians, I think I should be Right without social bias instead of Left Libertarian or Left without social bias.

    EDIT : just retook the test changing a bit my answers wherever I hesitated and got this :

    Economic Left/Right: -1.50

    Just took the test. First time i've ever been in the Left Libertarian section. I used to be over by Thatcher in the Right Authoritarian section but over the space of about a year and a half i've gradually got further and further left. Last time i did it i was near the centre in the Left Authoritarian section. Strange how things change so quickly

    I'm sure I've taken this before but thought I'd try it again. Right/Libertarian for me, as expected. One problem I have with the test, though, is how many questions are irrelevant to politics. Like, you can be libertarian about art, while still disliking modern art... but saying that "Abstract art that doesn't represent anything shouldn't be considered art at all" surely counts against your "libertarian" score.

    Hmm.. They are all relevant to politics. The question you mentioned is relevant for your attitude towards art.
    Some art simply needs some education to understand. But I agree that some modern art is rather doubtful.
    The point is, can you live with that or not?

    I would be Centrist with Conservative leanings or center right as it is known in the States. I affiliate with no party and avoid extremism on both sides of the political isle.

    On every political test I take I always test moderate conservative with libertarian leanings which would be very accurate.

    My results were Economic Left/Right: -7.12, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.64. But I think there's a lot of confusion about what "libertarian" means, at least here in North America - I've met some libertarians, and their political philosophy is all about giving economic control to large corporations and other organized crime groups, and keeping individuals subordinate to the ruling class, and they also seem to want to control people by outlawing recreational drugs, banning abortion, etc.

    Also, I think people can be socially liberal or conservative in different areas. For example, I'm all about people having the freedom to do what they want in their personal lives but I'm very law and order when it comes to dealing with crimes (as opposed to things that shouldn't be crimes, such as recreational drug use) so my social score doesn't reflect my views on most issues. The questions are based on a mix of issues, some of which I take quite a liberal view and some of which I take quite a conservative view.
