What's your political compass point?

Some of the wording seems "loaded" but it's a fun test anyway.

How do you come out? A Ghandi or a Bush? A Pope Benedict or a Nelson Mandela? Or like me, in No Man's Land?

Check it out and report back.

Fun test...though I came out slightly to the left of center, which is strange. About the only "left-leaning" views I have are on the environment.

Maybe that's because of the wording on some questions. The "always" and "nevers" get me!

I think I have taken this test before, and I think it came out differently, so I suppose my political views change like the wind.

That might be the case, right.

On these online tests, half the answers are always impossible for me to answer with the options given, so I rarely do them any more.

-0.75 Economic Left/Right
+0.46 Social Libertarian/Authoritarian

Whatever all that means?

I have always considered myself to be just slightly right of the center, or as close to the center as possible. I just believe it all depends on the topic or issue that is being discussed. Some of those questions in that test I just could have easily had no opinion on, instead of having to choose agree or disagree. I do remember only picking "strongly disagree" once & "strongly agree" maybe 3 times. I don't remember the questions on those particular answers.

So which quadrant were you in, Rob? Lower-right?

Does your score mean you're in the upper left quadrant, Dr Rub?

just barely in the upper left quadrant.

I'm actually real close to the very center, which I guess would either be apart of all 4 quadrants, or not part of any of them.
