Political Compass 2008
I was inspired by Dom's post to finally get around to retaking this test, with the following results:
Economic Left/Right: 5.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.36
My previous results (care of Spinach):
<+Spinach> mithrandi.political_compass is 7.25/-6.31 (2006/01/10), 5.88/-5.95 (2004/06/22)
Interesting that my views seem to have swung in a similar pattern to his, over time; perhaps it was the test that changed, not our views? I'm somewhat confused in the left-wards swing in my Economic score, since I don't think that's an accurate representation of my actual viewpoint. As before, I was left with a fair amount of dissatisfaction with many of the questions, as I was not able to adequately represent my views on a particular subject through the limited options available.
