I agree with mr skink. These tests are too general. And the thing is, that different cultures have different priorities and different standards.

This is not meant to be definitive by any means, it's just a general idea of where you may find yourself. The graph definitely shows people who exhibit certain particular beliefs. Even in the test description, they clarify that two people may not have similar ideologies even though they may be close on the graph. It's mostly for fun really.

To skink and UQ:
This test (The political matrix) is slightly better than the political compass imo. It has more to do with, you know, politics.

My score on this was (-7.48, -4.87)

This is my favorite though:

I haven't taken this one in a while, but I think I got 89% democratic last time I took it.

Je Suis: I am more of a milquetoasty socialist; I don't advocate full nationalization, just nationalization in certain sectors.

That's a lot more to the left in terms of economics than I thought I'd get.
