So pepes have been messing with their graphs to humanise themselves... Shoulda posted the 2nd and left the first as a Legend as it doesn't scan right now. Same with Landru, I wondered WTF was going on when his became the same as mine!!I agree. I feel like I could/would get a completely different result each time I took the test...I took it again this morning and ended up in the green- must have been in a bad mood yesterday
I think left/right politics to be a bit of a mind-trick and some of the questions are very badly worded but this is the result I got.
Economic Left/Right: 6.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.23
Expected myself to be more towards the anarchist direction, but I guess I'm not there yet. Btw, what the hell does the art question has to do with politics lol?
A surprise to me . . . !!!! my results are rather similar to yours Mick . . .The political spectrum is not one dimensional left-right. There have been many ways of attempting to describe it, but the Political Compass model is probably the simplest, while still capturing some of the complexity. Take the test and see where you are:

This is me:
Economic Left/Right: -5.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.10
Some relative positions:
I've found the skeptical movement seems to be populated with social libertarians, which makes sense as we are skeptical of arbitrary rules and moral codes - especially when based in religion. However there seems to be a good left-right spread on economic factors, with many skeptics being quite right wing (free markets) economically. I'm more left-wing, preferring a degree of regulation to counteract market excesses and negative externalities.
While I tend toward a Libertarian point of view I never thought I was on the Liberal end of the political spectrum . . . Justanarlinepilot do you think this graphic represents your political and psychological profile???
