    Political Compass

    This test has been around forever; I remember taking it in a high school class. I like to retake it every few years to see if I've moved positions

    Where are you?

      I think there should have been more answer choices for at least a few of the questions

        Structured disguised quesrions. The question is implied.

        Some imperatives work in a similar way (similar in that they illicit a response, without a question mark).

      This is an awesome thread (especially given the intense current political divide in America). I'll give the test a go big time, and return w/my results ASAP :-)

        Some of the questions baffled me big time, but I've been awake for 36 hours so it is what it is... haha.


        Economic Left/Right: -6.88

        Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.72

        So we are all in the same general vicinity thus far. Buncha lefties : p

        I agree I wish some of the questions were clearer in their meaning and intention

              Aren't none of you all mixed on some stuff? Like, isn't it normal to be 'left leaning' on certain matters and you can be technicallly (you don't have to identify or label yourself) right leaning on other matters.
              I find I'm more right leaning on illegal immigration for instance, but left on most environmental issues.

                A few of those questions are difficult to select agree/disagree on. I’m actually split on a few of them.

                Like the abortion question. I have mixed feelings about that one. I think abortion should be legal for rape/incest, and legal only in the first trimester. But I also think that abortion should be allowed because liberal women are more likely to get abortions than conservative women, and political views often run in families.

                  Din Djarin I don't think "third trimester abortion" isn't a well-understood term. It almost never means that women who decide to get an abortion at 8 months can get one, it means that women carrying fetuses with severe abnormalities incompatible with life can terminate the pregnancy before they "give birth" (inducing labor even though the baby is stillborn or will die within hours after birth) or there is some medical complication seriously risking the mothers life that requires the termination of the pregnancy. Abortions after 21 weeks account for 1% of all abortions, anyway. A fetus is considered viable around 24 weeks (with some variation). While I don't like abortion, I am not opposed to these sorts of special circumstances. Women generally don't want to get abortions to begin with, never mind late terms ones, unless they have to.

                  Din Djarin, you’d be surprised how many people in power are lobbying for late term abortions. And even post-birth abortions. Andrew Cuomo comes to mind as a governor who has allowed such legislation.

                test results

                i feel like that test was written by a lefty though. the way some of those questions were worded, you would have to be legitimately evil to pick the right wing response.

                  I've taken it before and come out the same -- left libertarian.

                      That was the question I liked the most...haha. Some of the other ones had me shaking my head big time, and I was glad my college days (and student loans) are nevermore :-)
