Political compass test

Unread postby Fire Marshall Bill » Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:35 pm

Thought I'd throw this out there

It's a better test but it can still be beaten

I came closest to center mass at the WWR some time ago is why I know I'm more of a centrist than say....jb : )

I don't think the questions perfectly capture the libertarian/authoritarian angle, but interesting nonetheless

I'd love to see a large sample of the same graph, broken down into geographical upbringing. By and large, you are what you come from (with some exception).

I come from Chardon, OH which is about as right and Christian conservative as it gets in NEO. That being said, my mom was a hippy who worked as a journalist in the Bay Area in the early 70's and my father comes from Buffalo. Traveled a ton in the Navy early in his life, then was a bartender for a number of years until working his ass off at Lubrizol to support mom and the three boys. Quite literally, I came from my parents and am a great blend of the two :)

I thought it was pretty obvious....

In fact, after reading it again, it is pretty obvious
