All right all you fascists, communists, statists, anarchists, minarchists, socialists, libertarians, and authoritarians. It's time to put your money where your mouth is.

I'm fairly certain that most of you have taken this test before, but now it's time to post the results (which has probably already been done before too on DDO).

My results: http://www.politicalcompass.org...

You know, the more I take this test the more I despise it. But at least I am not in the centre anymore.

I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Calm down!

Write a new one, then.

Okay, I will.

So, you're going to do exactly what I requested, but, to make it seem like you disagree with my suggestion, you're going to do it in an ad-hoc (and perhaps inconsistent, based on the sort of questioning) manner? :P

I agree that it's not a comprehensive test, but there is some substance to it. Realistically there should be more questions, but I think it gives you a decent ball-park figure.

The problem with asking people what they think they are is that a lot of people don't really know what they are. Look at how many kids are on the site. A lot of them don't really understand the intricacies of competing world views.

Sorry.
You scored that low on the libertarian scale because you are slightly heartless.

Its not a test any more than asking people what their birthday is.

What if you were asked someone else's birthday? Like, your girlfriend's? You can sure as hell bet that's a test.

Sure. But I'm asking people about their own label.

But I have a better idea for a test... where can/should I make one?

I was sort of being facetious through that whole bit. Guess you didn't pick up on it. :(

On a serious note, though, the test is a little different from asking a birthday. The latter case requires only a regurgitation of a descriptive fact, whereas the former asks for a "best fit" description of one's normative judgments. Personally, I think a free-response evaluation by a team composed of a political scientist, an economist, a philosopher, a psychologist, and the like would be better, though far more expensive. :P

But I have a better idea for a test... where can/should I make one?

Oh, so now you're going to conform to my request to write a better test? :)

Honest answer: Just write one up in word that allows for free-response short answers. Create a survey with Google Docs that posts the answers per respondent into one large spreadsheet, then get a couple members of different political leanings to get together and evaluate each respondent.

Make a Word or Excel document.

Personally I was just going to do it as a word document and work out the results by hand!

I'm drifting a little bit back to the right.

Although, I'd like to say that I don't think this test is accurate.
