I don’t talk much about politics, but Kyb recently took the political compass test and I was interested enough to see what my own result would be.
Apparently, I’m Economic Left / Right: -1.75, Social Libertarian / Authoritarian: -5.85
I was expecting to be slightly more left, economically, but the quadrant is exactly what I expected. In fact, any quadrant which contains not only Kyb, but also Gandhi and the Dalai Lama has to be a good place to be. :-)
It’s interesting to think that the political party in the UK which best represents my views is either the Greens, or Labour circa 1972.
Do take the test yourself and share your results. I’m updating the chart with the known scores of friends (and rough position of historical figures).
