The Political Compass

#1
Not a particularly rigorous model but the Political Compass questionaire is quite entertaining.

Rather than simply left/ right it also plots a position with respect to authority.

Unsurprisingly I'm economically liberal (3.75) and socially libertarian (-5.18), on a ten point scale.

Economic Left/Right: -6.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 3.18

Somewhere inbetween Stalin,Hitler and Ghandi and left of Robert Mugabe!

Economic Left/Right: -3.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.77

It would appear that Ghandi and I are twins, a few notable differences though; primarily I'm not dead yet!

I've done these sort of Psycho tests before, it dosn't take much to see where they lead . Try it again and it's easy to adjust your score.
My result was ,
Economic Left/Right: -2.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.77

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.00 As I thought.

Economic Left/Right: -2.88, which is odd as I thought I was as right wing as Alf Garnnet. Might have to take up hugging trees instead eating babies and hating everone and everything! Or am I reading it wrong?

As someone who is to the right of Genghis Khan I believe that the questions in this exercise are badly flawed. No way could I be:

Economic Left/Right: -2.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.36
