    If you think about it logically, it makes sense.

    And given that, you can infer that Fs would lean more towards social issues, and Ts would lean more towards economic issues.

    generally speaking..that is.

    What compass is this? The only compass I'm aware of has to do with government's taxation and spending, where freedom is inversely correlated with the magnitude of tax/spending.

    I don't get it.


    The two are intertwined.

    Countries with a higher standard of living also tend to be more tolerant of diversity(racial, sexual, political, etc.).

    But social ideology, like protestant ethic or socialism affects economics structure.

    Even psychology is mixed in there.

    I don't really understand the question.

    Not at all. I care to understand where the OP is coming from and where he is going.

    I don't think that's your fault.

    The nature of the economy and society seem to be inextricably linked. I don't know how I can seperate these.

    I suppose I will say social issues are more important, as the economy is just a social construct, secondary and subsidiary to society.

    Historically, it's "the freer the economy, the richer the people" and rich people tend to be more demanding of freedom in their personal behaviors, but it's not hard and fast. I think that the separation of freedom into "economic" and "personal" is a false dichotomy. Economic activity is clearly social behavior by individuals and/or groups, and personal choices (marriage choice, vices, sexual activity) often have economic elements, too. For example, if prostitution is illegal, is that not regulation of both personal and economic activity? We need to get people away from voting on single issues or social issues alone or economic issues alone. That type of electoral behavior has led to the rise of two political parties with incoherent and failed platforms.
