How exactly do you read the compass? I've seen graphics like this

I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

So much of that is wrong. Centre isn't liberal and there is absolutely no such thing as left-libertarianism, libertarians hate taxation or any regulation and non-chairty care for the poor at all.

I think liberalism here is "classical liberalism" and there is left-libertarian considering it's an authoritarian/libertarian scale. If there was no left libertarianism then you'd take out the entire bottom left, which is just illogical considering a lot people on this site are placed there.

Even with that it's only accommodating of a weak scale. The test questions are very good, the problem is the center of the graph is way out of whack with the global political center. This is a scale where staunchly left-wing parties like Sinn Fein and the Scottish National party are only slightly left of center (https://www.politicalcompass.org...). And the test itself is designed so most people fall to the left of these parties. For example, in that graph I line up as an anarchs-capitalist, which I'm not. The Political Compass is only really useful in comparing the mean of large groups. You have to account that the test tries to force everyone into the bottom-left and go from there.

I much prefer tests like ISideWith (where it distinguishes my support for conservatism with my disdain for Trump) or OnTheIssues (where I line up as a libertarian-leaning conservative, which is accurate http://www.ontheissues.org...). They have better, less vague questions and actually seem to reflect where people line up on.

The site fluctuates between the purple and green but never are majority authoritarian-leaning.

this is most to do with the age group/generation that this site is frequented by.

No. A few months after the conservative influx there was a majority of conservatives for about a year or so.
