    I'm the first one to come right of either of the scales.
    ...and you an impoverished student.

    Tut! Tut!

    No shocks with me Economic Left/Right: -8.25, Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.74.

    Btw the general results showing people having (surprisingly for them themselves) leftist views are not that surprising to me. It kind of sums up the Irish Electorate - think left wing, vote on family civil war lines for right wing parties!

    didnt think my economic beliefs would be so far left.
    This is an American site. Their "centre" is slightly to the right of Mussolini. I suspect the European centre is more like -3, -3, if not -4, -4.

    As for my own score,
    Economic Left/Right: -3.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.54

    I've updated the crowd chart to include all of the scores in the thread so far.

    It's obviously limited given the amount of questions - I think I've done one before that took 20 minutes/ half and hour to complete which obviously breaks things down much more. Partizan must be off the charts given where I am!

    Poor Student sticking out like a sore thumb there! Should probably all stop listening to him.

    Can't remember my score now, but it was around where The Boss is. Thought I'd be much more communist, to be honest. That said, the lack of a "don't know/don't care" option possibly distorted my score a bit.

    Edit - actually, took it again there and got:

    Economic Left/Right: -5.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.13

    3 and a half years ago


    Reminds me of Father Ted

    Father Fitzpatrick: And this is the last known photo of Herr Hitler; he's signing a few death warrants there.
    Ted: Funny how you get more right-wing as you get older!

    I can't find it again, but I read a bunch of stuff on their site and can confirm that they mention somewhere that those involved are English.

    And I thought I was way to the left, some others here must be chomping at the bit for a revolution.

    I've done it before but I'm fairly certain the scale is skewed as (and for the life of my I can't think of the name used) but the type of scale it's based on is 1-5 to account for the issue pineapple stu brought up about people who were neutral or didn't care. While the objective of its absence, in essentially a 1-4 scale, seems to be to try to force a decision one way or the other but it's far from a sound way of doing that.

    Obviously there are other issues (over-simplification of complex questions) but that stood out for me.

    Incidentally I scored
    Economic Left/Right: 1.62
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.87

    The 1.62 is close to what I normally score, I'm usually nearer the centre than the -4.87 so I'm guessing I hit a few more Stronglys this time. I recall once scoring in the 0s on both once being a smidgen into the quadrant it has me in this time.

    A fair few double negative questions too; never a good idea in a poll.

    You're just backing up my argument there, Thatcher.
