Swaying More Left, Less Libertarian About a year ago, I took the Political Compass quiz, and turned out to be a left/centrist economist and fairly libertarian socially. In a year, I seem to have changed a bit, swinging more left while moving a little more central socially. It's funny, because I always considere myself fairly centrist when it comes to economic policy. Funny.
Economic Left/Right: -4.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.28
All this really does mean is that I'm completely opposite George W. Bush, which explains my utter disgust for the man and his beliefs.

"That doesn't agree with where I would put myself"
I'm not saying the test has high validity, but it's possible to be surprised by your own political leanings. In high school, I was sure I was a hard-core conservative. But, when a government class forced me to go through my beliefs issue by issue, it turned out I was mostly left-leaning with a strong right-leaning stance on a few issues. My right-leaning beliefs happened to be ones most publicized by the media, so I thought I was in total agreement with the Republican platform when in fact I wasn't.
Now that you mention it Holz, I do remember there being a few questions where I either could have answered agree or disagree and a few that I couldn't care less either way but had to answer something. I guess that's the error involved in the test. Oh well.
