hmm, looks like I'm going more libertarian in my old age since I last took that test (when did you first put that up? two years ago? three?). Well, things ARE getting more dire in the real world. Ugh.

Now:
Economic Left/Right: -8.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.15

Then:
Economic Left/Right: -8.5
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.9

HA! I'm averagely average!

I hate these tests, I argue with the questions all the way through. I know I'd be a terrible witness in court..."Yes or No? Me: Well... it depends"

Posted by: ellroon | Dec 28, 2005 3:34:12 PM

Looks like I'm pretty average in comparison to the crowd hereabouts. And why am I not surprised to see Chuckles alone out in right field?

Pretty mushy liberal.

Although, if I retook the test tomorrow I'd probably get a different result.

Hmm, I was 9% Republican on the "how Republican are you?" quiz.

Yep, strongly leftist and anarchistic--take that, Dalai Lama and Gandhi!

I didn't expect the anti-authoritarian sentiments to come out quite this strongly.

then I took it again when I forgot my original answers and got

Economic Left/Right: -4.21
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.10

so let's put a plus/minus 0.5 on it.

Posted by: Steppy | Dec 29, 2005 10:46:29 AM

-8.8,-9.0

Posted by: flory | Dec 30, 2005 1:48:57 AM

Whoa, looks like I have some work to do! Now that I've got this software to do the graphing, it should be quick. I'll post an update sometime this weekend.

Economic Left/Right: -6.13

Man, if I had been taking this quiz annually over the past fifteen years, the graph as a function of time would look really interesting...(I'm not sure how much S L/A would change, but E L/R, definitely.)

Posted by: mds | Dec 30, 2005 1:12:04 PM

Proud to be out alone in right field - I'm here, for you to jeer, get over it.

Posted by: Charlie | Dec 30, 2005 1:15:15 PM

Aw, Charlie, we still love you. Even if nothing else, there's the Parable of the Lost Sheep, you know. :-)

Posted by: mds | Dec 30, 2005 1:47:42 PM

I know - unfortunately for you, I am one of the 99 sheep who actually listen to His voice - just be glad I didn't post something like "Think Pink (alternatively, Just Think)" although my favorite is "Two Pairs Beats a Straight"

Posted by: Charlie | Dec 30, 2005 2:01:08 PM

Who let the troll back in?

Posted by: Michael | Dec 30, 2005 2:18:37 PM

Since I am the one posting on topic and responding to others directly, I guess YOU did, Michael.

Posted by: Charlie | Dec 30, 2005 2:24:09 PM

My New Years resolution is to not respond to trolls though, so back on topic - the left wing blogs have indeed had a moderating effect on me - I take the quiz today and get a score of 4.13 Right and only 1.90 Authoritarian ; )

I do recall the same problem I had with that last question too - I "disagree" that it's fine for society to be open about sex, but "strongly agree" regardless these days it's going too far - so I split the baby and said just plain "agree".

Posted by: Charlie | Dec 30, 2005 3:00:13 PM

Who let the troll back in?

Huh! Huh! Huh! Who let the troll in? Etc.

unfortunately for you, I am one of the 99 sheep who actually listen to His voice

Hang on: Economic Left/Right of 4.38? Sounds more like "young ruler" territory, or someone who doesn't approve of Jubilee years. 4.13 is just fine, though. :-)

Meanwhile, as Charlie and Steppy point out, there seem to be some definite error bars on these scores. Do we want to be rigorous, or poised for a comeback?

Posted by: mds | Dec 30, 2005 3:08:19 PM

Young ruler?! Ouch - since I don't believe Jesus was a socialist, I always preferred the lawyer who at least asked and answered correctly, the advantage being I know the end of His Story and who my neighbors are.

Posted by: Jeffraham Prestonian | Mar 11, 2007 2:31:46 PM

I find I'm trending more to "strongly agree/strongly disagree" answers rather than the sort of wishy washy "well, yea, kinda sorta" answers I used to give on this test. Thus creeping further down and leftward on the scale...

ELR: -8.25
SL/A: -6.92

Prob'ly make my way down to the bottom corner and fall clean off the scale before the Bush administration is over with. :)
