Well...That Was Unexpected...

Ann Althouse just posted that she had retaken the Political Compass test for the first time in a couple of years and was surprised to find that she had, as some of her commenters suspected, moved a little to the right. I was curious to see where my own standing was these days on a somewhat objective scale. Well, here I am:

Holy liberal, Batman! When did that happen?!? I'd be curious where some of our other contributors/readers are on the scale. You know you want to see for yourself.

Smack in the center

As expected, pretty moderate.

Economic Left/Right: 1.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.77

CRCHAIR said...

Economic Left/Right: 1.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.05

So far I am more "Conservative" than the rest of the group.

"Nick" said...

Economic Left/Right: -1.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.64

It's a decent test, but on a few things I think it was much too simple, my position is more nuanced or a completely different understanding/option (they asked A/B, I would say C) and I think that skewed the result a little.

Economic Left/Right: 1.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -1.69

Find it interesting that Nomad and CRCHAIR got the exact same economic number.
