Just thought I'd do a little experiment...

Another forum I frequent had a topic where people were posting where they sat on the 'political compass'. It's a short online quiz which tries to plot your political stances on an XY plane. Remarkably, nearly everyone was landing in the same spot. So I got wondering whether the same sort of thing would happen here, and whether the results would match the other forum.

Here's the link to the test


To try and get this accurate, don't look at the results of others 'till you finish the test.

Here's the link to the test

And here's my result.

Go!
I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Bloody hell, I'm leaning towards Stalin... but pretty close to the centre.

Surprised that I landed on the left, but then again I'm not religious.

I would like to see what the forum score would be, and how it relates to the age and ethnicity polls.

It would help if those doing this test also state their age and ethnicity :) I'm white and 30.

edit: damn POLAND, we should form our own party :D

Seems we all share roughly the same economic ideals, but I'm a self proclaimed libertarian.

YEEEAAAHHHH!!! Let's write strongly worded letters of disapproval to women who want to have abortions!

:D :D :D

Edit: I don't think there's much point in adding your gender, spudfiles is very much a boy's club so it can be taken forgranted that respondents are male.
