I think people here have posted similar tests before, but with the current politically changing state of the world, I thought I'd share this one since it's been a year or so since anyone's done so and people's views change over time, especially during periods such as at the moment. It's similar to the Political Compass but also has a neutral option, slightly more relevant questions and an importance option so I think it's a better test:

http://www.gotoquiz.com/politics/political-spectrum-quiz.html

My results:

You are a center-right social libertarian.

Right: 1.35, Libertarian: 3.92


Interestingly when I took this a couple of years ago I was slightly to the left on the economic scale but I think I've adapted my economic views due to a wave of terrible protectionist or nanny-state legislation that has been proposed or introduced in a number of countries since then. On the social scale I haven't changed much at all, and have if anything become slightly more libertarian.

Well, guess I'm a filthy communist (joking)

In all seriousness, I knew I'd get a similar result to the one I got.

@ChristianRepass

So we are both communists, but from opposite sides? Like Lawful vs Chaotic...

No, both of you are centre-left. Communist would be right up in the top left, while socialist would be similar economically (probably not quite as far left) but not as authoritarian.

I recently made this list of things that my fictional party would do if elected in Britain. They are (copied from a Word document):



You have to think to yourself "what's best for the people, and what's best for the economy?". Well free trade is definitely best for the economy and benefits many people, and anyone with a sane mind (sadly about half of the British define themselves as authoritarian populist supporters which is why no party like this ever wins in Britain) probably wants personal freedom. In addition to this, countries with higher levels of personal and economic freedom tend to be wealthier and happier, so I think I'm onto something. At the same time, we need to be realistic, and I've demonstrated this in my goals too by supporting the majority of existing laws regarding terrorism, animal rights and essential welfare.

My results:

You are a right social libertarian.
Right: 4.47, Libertarian: 8.21

However, this does not fit with the breakout stats.

On the left side are pacifists and anti-war activists. On the right side are those who want a strong military that intervenes around the world.
You scored: -2.34

Where are you in the culture war? On the liberal side, or the conservative side? This scale may apply more to the US than other countries.
You scored: -5.31

Pretty far to the left (more than the average) in both cases. I think the only reason it put me right is that I am a firm capitalist. Since being a capitalist is how I put food on the table, it stands to reason.

(And I am usually pretty far left on social issues)

I was joking about being a communist.

Also, cool! Macron's also center-left!

I dunno man, I'm taking it and like

"Marriage must be heralded for the important role it plays in society."

Yes. Two-person households should be valued highly in society. No, that doesn't mean I want to keep T3h g4ys from marrying, it just means I don't want to glorify single parenthood. If you're a single parent, then you have my respect, but that doesn't mean we should dis-incentivize getting married by making single life more affordable in terms of tax benefits than married life. Is there a checkbox for that? No. I'm pretty sure this thing is going to tick me one way or the other as "wants to kick out all teh homos."

I'd call him a centrist.

You are a right social libertarian.
Right: 4.8, Libertarian: 6.71

Non interventionist, neutral on the culture war, like almost smack dab in the center, but I lean more rightward than whoever else has taken that test.

Left: 5.94, Libertarian: 3.68

A very Ameri-centric quiz, of course.... I've always considered myself a democratic socialist.

I've always been a supporter of unionism, and it 'persecution' under Thatcher had both an immediate and now delayed effect, as working conditions and living standards for ordinary people, like firefighters, nurses, etc are plummeting in the U.K. and elsewhere, since the "big fuckover" by the banks in '08.

Incidentally, 'ArJayDeeGee' - T.V.licences in Oz were abolished before I even got here...unfortunately, our very independent ABC (unlike your now somewhat skewed BBC) are under threat from both underfunding and a group of parliamentary wankers who want to privatise it and kill off proper political debate, by default.

This is way too American-centric for me (guns who? never heard of them), and I though I'd turn out leaning more right.

You are a left moderate social authoritarian.
Left: 5.95, Authoritarian: 1.77

p.s. ArJay - I just read your party manifesto...and wow, what a mish-mash of what most people would describe as 'left' and 'right'-ist policies.
Your total non-censorship thing is even more radical than my long-held beliefs (censorship was a right pain-in-the-arse, when I was young !) - I don't think you've thought through the ISP thing - surely "net nanny" software to keep the kiddies from the porn sites should be kept in place ! - but otherwise yes, I hate censorship.

Left-social libertarian. Left 5.96, libertarian 4.88.

Sounds about right. I figured I’d get a higher libertarian score than most of the lefties, if for no other reason than the fact that I see gun control as a “meh, whatever, I’m no gun nut, but prohibitions never work in this country” kind of thing.

You are a centrist moderate social libertarian.
Left: 0.85, Libertarian: 1.64


Sometimes if you take several of these, you'll get different results from each one.

You are a far-left social libertarian.
Left: 8.81, Libertarian: 3.8

Foreign policy: Neo-conservative (0,96)
Culture: Cultural-liberal (-4,53)

These things are always fun, even though I don't really agree with the results. I imagine politics as a table with one bad-tasting cake on the right side and one bad-tasting cake on the left side; I just pick the cherries from both and make a beeline for the bar.

i believe in minimum and maximum wage, profits should be added on top of a citizen salary that covers bare necessities. all drugs should be decriminalized and some should be regulated legally.

reproduction should be under license, parents and educators should be enforced to instill humanitarian and enviromentalist morals, critical thought in children. religions have to be ecumenized and secularized or abolished. freedom of speech has to be absolute, i.e opinions, art, speculation to be held under fair and non-oppressive scrutiny.

immoral and abusive traditions and sectors should be recognized as such with no excuses and intervened with. world government with democratic propositions to a technocratic board of sentient ultra-manager algorithms

Looks as if we have a fair mixture of views here. I also took the test imagining that I was Donald Trump, since I know what his answers would have been for most of the questions, and got something like Right: 6, Authoritarian: 3.5, which sounds much like how I've imagined him being.
