I guess I'm not terribly surprised by my results; I'm registered libertarian, but kind of distanced myself from political parties since joining the circus... er, I mean academia:

Guess I'm not too surprised either, but I think this test isn't very fair for people on the true fringes. I'm actually quite a moderate leftist (if one considers "far left" to be raw, actual socialism), yet I scored much more left-wing than François Hollande - pretty silly, really.

Mine has shifted a bit from the last time.

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -4.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.92

I've seen this site before, questions are a bit random and seem biased towards the left IMO. Still this is my result;

Green square. Not that I am surprised.

Many of these questions are stupid and cannot possibly be used to pick a political position. For example, the question about abstract art has nothing to do with politics.

Nevertheless, here is my graph:

Libertarian left, unsurprisingly.

I didn't answer the quiz. The first question was too silly for me.
stupid quiz said:
If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations.
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for serving humanity. It's just that if the interests of trans-national corporations are also served, then count me out.

Around about (2,6) in the green, near Gandhi. (Don't have time to work out how to paste an image in).

Right-click on the image, select the option that lets you view the image in a separate window or tab. Then copy the URL, and paste it here in the image tag. Just for future reference. (There might also be a "copy URL" option when you right click on the image, depending on your browser).

I'm just a notch below Ghandi. Not surprising, since I am a pacifist.

Yeah, for a lot of those questions my true answer would be, "That's a stupid question!"

Yet I muddled through someohow:

Our race has many superior qualities, compared with other races.
I'd like to know where this ranks on the scale. Last I checked, racism isn't the purview of any side of this graph.

Decimator, may want to look into authoritarian and Hitler.

Yeah, some of the questions need a "case by case" button where ideologies don't make sense.
