Thanks to my dear friend Andree for her post about her political leanings and a link to a test to discover your own political compass. Her post got me curious. I think of myself as a rather moderate person. Depending on the social circle of people I am around, I tend to be “the liberal” in those groups of people who are more conservative, yet I am a tad bit more conservative in relation to those people who are on the more liberal side of the scale. Following Andree’s lead, I took the quiz myself and here’s what I discovered:
Economic Left/Right: -5.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.08
Interestingly enough, I am pretty squarely located in the Libertarian Left quadrant. This is the same quadrant as Ghandi, the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Upton Sinclair, & Al Franken. Can’t say I’m that surprised by this. What about you – what’s your political compass? You can take the test here.
