Where do y'all fall on the political compass?

Politics often come up a lot on this forum. Interested where everyone else stands. My score is:
Economic Left/Right: -2.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.21

The cool quadrant, Every other one is lame.

Heck yeah haha. But honestly I thought I would be placed closer to the center on the left right scale. But I guess I am pretty close to it still. I wonder where it'd put me if there were more gun-control related questions. Probably would place me further right in that case.

I didn't know there was a test for this until now, Even though it's probably as official/serious as a facebook personality test. Always thought it was a throw-away political joke referencing an outdated chart.

Economic Left/Right: 1.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.46

I was expecting to be placed more extremely, But the result was interesting to see, And It's accurate enough I think.

Yeah. At the very least I respect their acknowledgement that political opinion is more complicated than just right and left.

Interesting. I would have thought it had put me lower on the Libertarian side of things. I'd bet it would have if there were more questions about gun control, religion, the high class population.

Economic Left/Right -6.0
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian -7.74

My Libertarian score is probably accurate, and I suppose I am pretty far left leaning, but I'm against bureaucracy and over-governing before all else. Take that as you will.

I don't follow politics all that much, but I thought it was funny that Biden and Trump were in the same quadrant. I figured with all the divisiveness between the two, they'd be in totally different areas of the plot. lol

Yeah I'm not sure how accurate it is. I actually just read something on reddit about how it sucks. But who knows how much that random person actually knows though of course.

I think it was pretty accurate for me. I do think my economic should be a little bit closer to the center and probably should be further libertarian.

I agree on the questions too. They miss a lot of topics I feel like. There are also weird sets of questions that I think are asking similar things, but for whatever reason my answers are seem a little contradictory.

I dunno. I just think it's a fun little conversation starter thing.
