    Economic Left/Right: -5.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.31


    Which means I'm a slightly leftwing libertarian. Something I have known for yeeeeeeeeeearrrrs... It may just have been the religion-section that put me on the left-side...

    Interesting test. Not too suprising, I came in at a -0.50/-5.44. I do agree with iamsheradan, I would have like to have a "neither agree/disagree" option.

    this is very interesting stuff

    I would love to see the scores for all the political board regulars... it may surprise many.

    I am a 3.38/-3.18

    which spells it out perfectly... stay outta my pocket book/stay outta my bedroom

    fiscal conservative/social liberal

    the only aspect of this that, while apparent in the questions, does not seem to me to relate to economics or social issues is one's take on international relations... war. where does that fit? I guess it's economic, since I am conservative economically and respect the necessity of war, but liberal socially.

    who knows

    like the test. I am a test developer in the psychological world, so I have to wonder if this one is reliable and valid and otherwise statistically sound... must do research!

    *Assuming President Bush would understand the questions on the test
    Well...not so funny... I assume that you could do much better than that, ZHD. Anyway, thanks for trying!


    Whoa! Never knew I have so much in common with the Dalai Lama.
    Interesting to see how many fellow members are little Dalai Lamas
    Maybe we should combine this thread with a poll which is based on the compass: Bush or Lama?

    Pretty interesting. I am at (7, 3).
    Interesting test. Made me have to think quite hard several times. I would have liked more alternatives, or at least a "Cannot choose" one.

    Anyways, -5.88, -4.00 for me. A bit further from the middle than I would have thought, now that age makes me more and more conservative. Or doesn't it?

    Okay, going on perceptions...

    Amazing. -5 -7.03
    I can't believe that i'm such an economic leftwinger. I have to take the test again when i'm not so tired.

    Yeah, quite funny. But it would be a lot more funnier if you could make a joke about George Bush. Practically, ZHD, you're a political neighbor of both, Kerry and Bush...so will you try that? Just for the fun of it? Pleeeeaaase

    Oh, come on, Radhil, even if you don't think Kerry was a "flip flopper," there is the stereotype that he is, so the joke is funny. Lighten up, junior.
    Yeah, I know. I'm trying. I didn't rant did I? :P

    EDIT -
    I could answer your question if I knew what you meant by (-6,88, -0,3).
    LightStorm, Mr. Period is your friend. Use him well.
