View Full Version : The Political Spectrum

I found a 53 question test that places you on a grid with the X axis going from "Left" to "Right" and the Y axis going from "Authoritarian" to "Libertarian". I thought it would be interesting to see where TRF lands on the plot. :)

Here's the test:

and here are my results:
My Political Views
I am a left social moderate
Left: 3.26, Libertarian: 0.38

A little more Leftist and Authoritarian than the norm, it seems. I have no problem with that.


Also, I feel the need to mention the obligatory: Do not use this thread to start a political or moral argument. There are other threads on this forum for that.

Have fun and please post your results. :)

Broken link.

Is it me or does that link only directs me back to the home page?

Edit: Fixed.

Is it time for the annual political litmus test? :p

No surprises, but I thought I would move a lot more right wing now with that dim dummy in Washington! :D

You are a left moderate social libertarian.
Left: 4, Libertarian: 1.59


07-08-09, 03:29
Sam, i thought you'd be so far Right, you'd fall off the graph. :D

07-08-09, 03:29
You are a center-left moderate social libertarian.
Left: 1.22, Libertarian: 1.96

No surprises, I'm more liberal than my party is :)

"You are a left social libertarian"

Sam: Sigh. I wish we could all get along. I didnt bash the last President. Disagree with, certainly, but I know my fellow liberals bashed him plenty. And now you conservatives are doing the same. It's a nasty path we're headed down. If only people from the opposing side could have a bit more respect. But I've given up on that front. Its futile to stop the divide America is getting itself into, coming from both sides of course.

And for the record, there are plenty of dim dummies in Washington from both sides. Gosh darn though, they're so adorable when they fight ;p

You are a right social authoritarian.
Right: 7.32, Authoritarian: 5.42


I've actually chosen the most radical right-winged answers to see how far it would send me... Not enough i guess :rolleyes:.

I remember posting a thread similar to this last year. It's pretty interesting to see where everybody scores, but not exactly surprising either. I think about 95% of people who took that test in the last thread like this fell in the bottom left quadrant...

Here's mine

You are a right moderate social authoritarian.
Right: 5.76, Authoritarian: 1.37





This test is different from another one I took though. On the other one I think I wasn't as far to the right and slightly more authoritarian, not by much though.

You are a left social moderate.
Left: 3.69, Libertarian: 0.99


Foreign Policy:

On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world. You scored: -0.62



Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries. You scored: -1.75


no surprises here!:p
