What’s The Colour Of Your Political Stripes?

We live in a world obsessed with putting labels on people. One that seems to be popular these days is in the political arena. Are your left, right, upside-down, or inside-out? 🙂 If you want to know where you stand, take this political test at Political Compass.

It’s pretty straightforward– just answer each question either Strongly agree, Agree, Disagree, or Strongly disagree.

There were a few questions I wasn’t sure how to answer but in the end they’ll give you their impression of where you stand in the political arena.

Here are my results– apparently, I’m a left-leaning Libertarian.

So, take the test and show us your political stripes in the comments below…

  1. MY Political Compass
    Economic Left/Right: -1.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.92
    My test results, whatever they mean?

  2. Many of the questions required deep thought and the approve / disapprove answers felt no room for a do not care / no comment / do not know answer. Found myself wondering what mind dreamed up these questions. Love some gray, not just black or white, Mindblower!

      • I wasn’t sure myself how to respond to some of them. I was looking for a none of the above button. 🙂

      • Daniel. Made a typo with the word “felt”. Should of been “left” so my comment would read “left no room for a do not care / no comment / do not know answer”. Believe you caught the error. Just poked some fun using those exclamations, Mindblower!

  3. Probably written by someone who has a university diploma in Humanities who doesn’t have any experience of growing up and living in the real world of ‘hard knocks’.
    There is a left side and right side to everything, divided by a very wide middle portion containing the ‘unknown’ factors of human existence.
