Right, Left ... where do you fit?

Meandering around the web and found this little test. I'm not sure of its accuracy or if it carries a bias, but it's interesting.


Mine was Libertarian Left:
Economic Left/Right: -1.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.46

Guess I'm fairly middle of the road!

Works for me. I've considered myself as having both a left and a right side, as well as a center.

Think for yourself and follow no one!
Economic Left/Right: -5.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.59

Hey, cool site (I think anyway). I'm a little confused as to what it all means though. Is the graph measureing like social values on the Y-axis and economic values on the X-axis? Or am I completely lost, lol. If anyone wants to shed some light on it for me please do and anything else my numbers mean. Thanks for your help!

I don't know if I agree with it, but I suppose it might be somewhat accurate. Bear in mind, however, that I did find many of the questions difficult to answer due to a lack of optional answers, thus resulting in my simply choosing the available option which would come closest to my intended answer according to my understanding of the answer at that point in time.

So from that standpoint, I'd have to say that it's not a very accurate test. Although by chance it did place me more or less in the middle, which is where I'd place myself anyway.
Although I must say that when it comes to personal morality issues, I tend to lean more to the right (abortion, SSM for example).

When it comes to economic redistribution of wealth, I'd place myself at very socialist but outside of government for the most part (i.e., people voluntarily give to help the needy), except when it comes to education, where I support it being compulsory and universal at all cost (i.e., if the government must intervene to ensure everyone gets to go to school, then so be it, even if it does mean higher taxes.

As for education, I tend to support character education and religion (albeit world religions, not necessarily one religion imposing itself over the others) to be most important, but also support science as equal in that fundamentalism ought not dictate how science ought to be interpreted. The reason I value character education most is because knowledge of science can be dangerous in the mind of one who would willingly use it to hurt others if it could benefit him. I'd place inter-faith education second in that it helps students to learn to live in a pluralistic society, and science third since without science, even the strongest character can only do so much to benefit mankind.

As for internationalism, I'm for world federation, so I think my position on globalization is clear there.

But as for centralization, I'd like to see more power in the hands of local governments, so I suppose that would make me very decentralist overall, with only national issues dealt with at the national level, and only international issues dealt with at the international level.

So where would I stand exactly? Even I don't know.
So I guess that would make me quite capitalist overall on a legalistic level. Too confusing!

I know, but somehow I took a liking to it :P
Economic Left/Right: 3.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.31

I agree the questions and/or answers leave a little to be desired, but overall, not a bad test.
