I think many of the questions were worded in such a way to give inaccurate results.

Yes, but it is the best I could find. Maybe they intentionally did that, who knows. There were some other tests, but they were too US centric and had similar wording issues.

My conclusion from the sample size is that you are all a bunch of anarchists.

Re: Your Political Compass Test (3Min.)



But the economic score is miscalculated because I do think business need to be regulated for workers' rights, consumers' rights, and the environment. There's no free market if there's no enforcement of rules that keep free competition alive. so.....the whole X axis is a failure. I should be in the purple zone, or at least in the middle. Caring for consumers' rights or the environment is not a radical left idea, just centrist.....at least on this side of the Atlantic.

PS, you won internet point for sending a quiz that doesn't request access to my facebook data

Well, your score suggests you are about to start a revolution. Was all that furniture selling part of some big MOVE?

Makes me out to be an anarcho-capitalist. Eat the poor! I actually think I'm a bit more centrist than that in reality.

I would say it is a overly simplistic and very American scale. With a European scale, I am sure some of my answers would have put me right of the vertical.

TBH the whole thing is American-centric, AFAICT. One of the first group of questions was about race, superiority of, which immediately made me wonder why they were comparing humans to animals, before I realised they meant ethnicity. Is it just a language issue? No, I don't think so.

Anyway, here's mine, FWIW. As a lifelong Tory voter (well, until I left the UK 20 years ago) it's odd to see that I'm on the left side of their spectrum; again, I guess it's just more of an American perspective.
