The Political Compass Test II: AKA Starpug Is Still A Commie

Postby EastStroudsburg13 » January 6th, 2014, 3:21 pm

Way back in 2010, a group of Scioly citizens on chat had a bit of fun with the Political Compass test, and from this, a thread was created by RandomPerson. It became very popular with the community, and enough people took it and provided their results that fmtiger124 was able to produce periodic graphs depicting the general political views of the site. Since it has been a while, I think it's high time to try this again!

Link to the test


It's a fun test to take, even if you're not particularly interested in politics. If you want, just post your Economic and Social numbers and I (or someone else) will add it to the overall graph.

My numbers:
Economic Left/Right: -5.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.44

Current graph (as of May 27, 2014):

Hmm,I've moved further left economically than the last time I took this.
I've always been around this level for social liberalism.
