Newground's political compass 2010-01-25 13:50:49 Reply

Just did this test to see my political alignment and though it would be interesting to see what the people of the BBS get as a whole.

My results:
Economic Left/Right: -2.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.41
or click here for visual diagram.

I would of posted on the government and politics forums but I was under the impression it was for serious debate.

I'm apparently hovering right around The Dalai Lama? I don't see what some of those questions really had to do with my political alignment, though.

Lol, if you don't want to do it, don't. I do think it needed a "i don't give a shit" option for each question, rather than forcing you to agree or disagree.

Exactly what I was thinking; seemed to tell me what I thought it would so it can't be all bad.

Very close to Ghandi and Nelson Mandella, which doesn't much surprise me at all.

Like everybody else ever apparently, I'm in the green zone on that test... it may indicate that Newgrounds is a bunch of moderate lefties (makes sense for young internet users on an entertainment site), but IMO the questions seem a bit loaded.

So I'm the only one so far right wing! woot!
not like I know what that means anyway I never bothered with politics.
Also I agree the questions seemed to be biased.

I've taken this test several times and gotten extremely varied results. It's not that my values change so much as how they apply to real-world applications.
