Has it been long enough for a new thread on it yet? It doesn't seem that long since we've last had one, but Dikiyoba couldn't find the most recent thread, so perhaps it was long enough ago it was lost in the most recent purge. Then again, Dikiyoba didn't search very hard for it.

EDIT (Ephesos): Yep, time for a new thread.

Arancaytar's last set of statistics is from December 2008, though I think there was a more recent topic since then.

Again, according to Aran's stats, the average is actually around (-5, -3). Perhaps the median is further in the third quadrant, but not by that much.

I drift further and further down each time I take this test, each time expecting the opposite.

This is quite a big shift to the left from the latest graph Aran plotted me on ('07), but not much of a change from when I took the test sometime last year.

Haha, you're all commies. Dirty, dirty commes. Probably fluoridating my water, too.

Now, allow me to quantify that with an image:

Yeah, that's right. Hitler. I'll let you think about that for a bit.

I know, man. I didn't think you'd land that far south of him.

Anyone want to guess were I now fall on the map? Seems that I have moved drasticly in relation to my proclaimed religious beliefs. God would be so proud of me.

Are these questions even fair? Granted, I ended up where I thought I would be, but I can't help but feel that this test leads most people towards the bottom left.

I took it and ended up surprisingly close to where it says Ron Paul is...and I know I have serious disagreements with Ron Paul, so I'm not sure how accurate it is...

Yup, time for a new thread.

 

I don't feel like taking the test right now, but I have drifted down and left a bit over the years.

That's one of the problems with the test: it leaves out issues such as monetary policy and gun control, which means it's a really rough approximation.

Also, not much different since the last time I took this test:
Economic: 10.00
Social: -7.79

Dikiyoba tried to put down more strong answers than usual to err on the extreme side, but it didn't seem to make too drastic of a difference.

Apparently, I am Nelson Mandela. Heh.

 

(I think I would have been somewhat closer to 0 on the social line, but when I hit Religion... well, suffice it to say, there was only one answer that had a value higher than "Disagree")

Fascinating. I'm really curious if the people who play Jeff's games as a whole are so overwhelmingly from the lower quadrant of the compass, or just the the group that populates these forums... And whatever the answer to the above questions is, why?

I'm not surprised by these results. Most of the issues I could come up with a middle ground.

 

Honestly I think this isn't the greatest poll; I noticed several questions that were loaded one way or another, but for being free I'm not going to complain.

If Will will let me hijack one of his wikis, I might copy over a nifty bit of code that allows me to plot political compass results onto a unified grid. It's great for comparison of different results, and it even gives averages!

I've been through it question for question with a couple of people, and found that on several of the questions their understanding of the meaning of the question was completely different to mine. So different, that it was as if they were answering a completely different question. Maybe that is intentional.
