    I didn't think the test was very good at all. I agree with ifmd95, politicalcompass is much better.

    My Political Compass

    Economic Left/Right: -4.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.03

    i really don't like this quiz at all. the questions are extremely pointed, leave absolutely no room for interpretation, and in many situations don't reflect any useful information at all.

    there have been threads in the past in which everybody's political compass dot was superimposed upon the same grid. if i recall a disproprortionate amount of people seemed to be pro-free market libertarians.

    And that is one of the reasons why I also take issue with the political compass, because most people do end up there.

    this is the internet. religious nutcases that are strongly pro-authoritarian are generally not around. this is the same internet where ron paul is revered and worshiped.

    i dont take issue with the validity of the political compass. it's one of the best measures of political stance available online (there certainly ought to be ones that take into account more than two dimensions, but i don't know of any).

    yeah. my experience is that most people online are either, as these tests would report (insufficiently so; two dimensions for a test is pretty bad), are socially libertarian and vary widely between pro-government and pro-market economics.

    I didn't particularly understand the nature of 'The Fed should be more concerned with:
    * Controllling unemployment
    * Controlling inflation'

    lol, yeah, that one had me going back and forth, it made little sense to me, but i wound up choosing "controlling inflation" cuz if that's controlled, then "unemployment" wouldn't be as bad....although, now that i write this, i realize that "controlling" something can include deliberately raising it as well as keeping it from rising.

    but then controlling unemployment could include forcing people to work in jobs that they aren't compatible with, are physically/mentally unhealthy, and or giving fines to people if they are unemployed..and other such nonsense
    argh!!!!!!!

    i figured it was intended to relate most to interest rates and currency. in some theory that is considered a standard trade-off there. (although not necessarily. for example, in recent decades you've had instances of "stagflation" where both happen..)
