    Uh...ok.

    This is why I don't get into political 'discussions'. What's the point? ;-)

    So...here's me!!!

    Basically what I expected, pretty much a moderate with a libertarian streak.

    Economic Left/Right: -0.75
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.23

    I-95%, S-84%, T-89%, P-84%

    By reason, I speculate that a central socioeconomic philosophy in accordance with libertarian leanings would be the most logical political philosophy, but as I have my own dogmatic ideals, there are some things I am not quite willing to compromise on. Namely, imposing religious values and the concept of property on others.

    That is quite the serious response to a comical suggestion. I was just pointing out that you have ultimate control over where you end up on that graph. It would be interesting to see where all of these survey takers would end up on the Nolan Chart (World's Smallest Political Quiz).

    The same could be said of the MBTI.

    The problem with political quizzes is that they a) are usually based on a a range of views of a certain country or culture, in case of the Nolan Chart and the Political Compass, they are primarily based on political issues relevant in the USA.

    Point B) is that the test will often be biased towards the political stance that the creator of the test himself holds. For example the Nolan Chart is biased towards libertarianism.

    Another flaw of the Political Compass test is that it measures Authoritarianism only in terms of social authoritarianism on issues such as abortion and homosexuality. A person's stance on economic freedom does not factor into this axis at all as it appears. The graph puts me into the libertarian quarter, however I am not a libertarian at all, and even though I have a liberal stance on most social issues, I should be placed further to the top on the graph, as I am opposed to private enterprise and excessive amounts of private property, for example.
    I don't lend any credence whatsoever to Mike Huben's website. That guy has been OBSESSED with attacking libertarianism and libertarians for over a decade. His entire website has been debunked on more than one occasion. It's not a con to get people to believe they are libertarians when they are not. If you look at the actual statements, many of them are pretty far outside of the "mainstream" of modern American politics. Recent surveys suggest that about 15-20% of Americans would identify as libertarian or "socially liberal, fiscally conservative." The Nolan Chart would suggest it's higher, but A) libertarians are more likely to take an Advocates for Self-Government quiz; and B) there is a natural human tendency to try to score "higher" on quizzes, and this has probably led to the higher-than-expected scores of libertarian and centrist on that particular quiz.
