I am two squares from the center line in the red. Thought I would be way more on the blue side of things. I guess I'm just pretty close to neutral on politics! Some things I'm way more right wing on though!

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

It's worse for me. I still plan on voting for the Socialist Alliance and I don't even belong in the Green Quadrant any more :'(

I'm getting old and conservative.

About right, I guess (although, as others have said, some of the questions are ambiguous - am I agreeing/disagreeing with the asserted fact, or the conclusion drawn from said fact?)

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

Basically your ability to do well at something shouldn't affect what you receive as a reward; you should not deserve or receive more than you need because of your skills.

Yeah, just about what I expected. This test is very interesting though, and it would be very interesting to see what other politicians would get. On the last page, it was very surprising seeing how Obama and other democrats weren't really far off from Romney and conservatives in the blue square.

IRL, I've always considered myself Conservative (and I've always thought Liberalism is a misnomer, since many people from the dreaded "right" are for personal freedoms as well), but I would hardly turn around and say that a homosexual couple should not be allowed to marry or (as a better example, since I'm not devout anyway) that the genetically disabled should not be allowed to reproduce, so I have always maintained I've held liberal beliefs as well.

It really makes you think how diverse politics actually is. It's not just Left Wing - Liberty/Right Wing - Authority.

Absolutely. There are people who are completely against personal freedoms who are extremists in terms of being left wing, too - Stalin and to a lesser extent Mugabe, for instance.

That's why a quadrant works so well - one axis for economic philosophy, the other for social.

It doesn't surprise me that every one of us are for personal freedoms. It surprises me even less given the debates we've had on these forums that so many are left wing in terms of economic theory. :-)

That looks about right to me, since I've always been someone that's leaned to what's considered the left on many issues. I am curious, though, how different my graph would've looked had I gone the other way on a few questions; there were quite a few (at least five) that I could've gone either way on. If I was to take the quiz again a month from now, it wouldn't surprise me at all if my dot was closer to the center on the economic scale.

So yeah, this was more interesting than I thought it would be. Thank you for sharing it. :)

I've done this test a couple of years ago too and I think I've moved slightly to the left and to the libertarian side since then.

edit

having problems displaying the image but this is the data its giving me:
Economic Left/Right: -7.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92

there's nothing that's certain... of that you can be certain
