What’s Left if you’re not all Right

Another attempt to define where people sit on the political spectrum. Some of the questions are written in a way that makes an honest answer impossible, and like a lot of broken surveys they don’t offer a “neutral” response, but the results are still amusing.

Economic Left/Right: 3.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.21
My score on The Political Compass

The most amusing thing about the results page is their phonied-up chart showing how you compare to well-known world leaders, based on their interpretation of public statements. The “diverse professional team” responsible for assessing the beliefs of said leaders is not identified, but their fanciful results are nonetheless presented as simple facts.
