    I am on a graph for the first time in my life. Wowsers!

    Cool graph, Khen, it makes it quite a bit easier to compare the politics of everyone. :thumbsup:

    Found a better compass.

    Edit: damn it, it won't post the picture.

    Those questions were only slightly less shitty than the last compass. But I doubt anyone here would be surprised by my results:

    https://8values.github.io/results.ht...&g=58.1&s=66.4

    (A lot of this is artifact; there were a substantial number of questions I answered 'neutral' on because I disagreed with the basic premise or tradeoff implied, and knew that answering incorrectly one way or another would skew the results.)

    I like having the neutral option and more axes. But yes, the questions are sufficiently ambiguous that I had to choose neutral for a large number.

    First time I've been called a centrist economically: https://8values.github.io/results.ht...&g=64.6&s=70.8

    Not surprised to be a Classical Liberal but think I'm more Markets but not sure I like where some of the questions lead. Centrist, Balanced, Liberal, Progressive.

    Test designed to predict likely political affiliation rather than accurately characterize political views based on a deep philosophical analysis. I signal my affiliation through those answers where I strongly agree or disagree, even though I could just as well omit the "strongly". On questions where I reject the premise I'm more likely to say I disagree rather than to say I'm neutral or unsure.

    Very much geared towards Anglo-American respondents.

    Didn't tell me anything I didn't already know. Meh.

    59.8% is a centrist. If you got 60%, it would say pro-markets.

    Few to many absolute questions without context for my taste, but here we go

    Seemed very much aimed at Americans. And as always blanket questions without context.

    If you don't like it, most to the pre-WWII era.
