Economic Left/Right: 0.50
Authoritarian/Libertarian: 0.25

This put my dot exactly in the middle.

I agree with Bonoman though, the test has some pretty big holes in it. Then again, most of these types of tests do.

First of all, if he's Buddhist, he may hate Gandhi, as he is, according to some Hindu sects, an avatar of Vishnu; essentially, a Hindu form of a "Messiah" if you will. The difference is that Hinduism has had nine avatars, with a tenth one supposed to usher in the end of the world.

But the Mahatma Gandhi of the early years is a remarked difference between the Gandhi of later years. In his earlier years, he was a worldly lawyer, who, during this period, made a famous remark about pro-violence. However, he had a "conversion" if you will, and became a non-violent aesthetic. You could call him a "born again Hindu" if you'd like, and this is the Gandhi that this test is talking about.

No offense, but I believe that you are looking into this way more deeply than this test envisioned. I mean, I doubt that the writers of this test even knew about the worldly lawyer Gandhi! Overall, I don't think you should be distressed over this. It's intended to be a high compliment!


"He had lived through an age when men and women with energy and ruthlessness but without much ability or persistence excelled. And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I'm four down and four left from the centre. It's probably a fairly accurate reflection of me, although I would have expected to have been a bit closer to the centre, but not much.
