Political compass II
 
If people want to post their Political Compass scores again now, I promise to graph them again, like I did on
this thread from 2002 which we briefly revisited in January.

The test takes 5 minutes and is interesting. My new numbers:

Economic Left/Right: 1.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.97

Happy Monkey 06-08-2005 10:44 AM

Economic Left/Right: -7.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.69

Silent 06-08-2005 10:46 AM

Economic Left/Right: -4.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.79

Me and Ghandi.

Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.92

-5.8, -6.1.

Let's hear it for representing authoritarianism as a positive! :lol2:

lookout123 06-08-2005 11:16 AM

economic L/R -.38
social L/A -1.28


some of the questions (like this one)
Quote:

Mothers may have careers, but their first duty is to be homemakers.
are difficult to answer. i had to answer yes to it. but if they had a question that said Fathers may have careers, but their first duty is to their family. i would have answered yes to that as well.

Economic: 1.5
Authoritarian: -4.36

Many of the questions contained assumptions I didn't agree with, so I think it tends to measure me inaccurately.

I think it's amusing that most of the world leaders are all on the authoritarian side of things. Of course they are. They are the authorities. Of course they think they should be able to tell everyone what to do.

I'm almost exactly in the same spot I was back then.

My current numbers...

Economic Left/Right: 7.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.31

My old numbers...

Economic Left/Right: 7.63
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.41

SteveDallas 06-08-2005 12:31 PM

Wow that's pretty fickle.

warch 06-08-2005 01:19 PM

Econ L/R -2.38
Soc Lib/Auth -5.28

I'm creeping towards moderate...previous -2.88 and -6.41

Thanks UT, for renewing this idea. I would like to see a chart with the posted names and numbers. You know what else would be cool, would be to see the old numbers and the new numbers superimposed on each other. I, for one, find my new numbers very different economically, but almost unchanged in the social dimension.

Old Numbers
Economic Left/Right: -6.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.28


New Numbers
Economic Left/Right: -3.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.49

For your reference, here is the thread to the previous incarnation. (Not that you couldn't find it, just trying to be helpful :))

lookout123 06-08-2005 01:46 PM

admit it, you were just looking for any excuse to post a link. UT put the link in the very first post of this thread... but nooooo BigV has to linklinklinklink. ;)

As I read the information at the site, the questions are deliberately phrased to induce a decision, not agreement. They're designed to provoke a response, which can then be measured. Hence, the "score" at the end.

As to measuring inaccurately, perhaps. But if we all use the same wrong scale, then the relative differences will be neglible, even if the starting point is wrong compared to an outside source.

By God, you're right!

l123, you've called me on this before--twice, in fact.

Once in fun, and once as a compliment.

I think this reveals a deep insecurity in me. I need to be believed, trusted and by providing the "evidence" (hey, if it wasn't true they wouldn't print it on the internet, right :crazy: ). The links may be a way of pre-empting any criticism.

Either that, or I just didn't read the opening post carefully enough.
