I think that over time, I've gradually drifted more and more to the bottom left corner. In any case, this result is no surprise whatsoever.

Economic Left/Right: -9.38
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.79

"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

It seems like a flawed survey, given that FYM is apparently crawling with left libertarians.

It is true. I question whether I'd have ended up as a center-right libertarian, had the questions not been so extreme. A lot of my friends think of me as "conservative" in my worldview...heh.

Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.56



I've taken the test just recently, but the result is saved on my desktop. So I retook it and will compare it with the other result later.

I consider myself being pretty much moderately left.

Current
Economic Left/Right: 3.12
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.05

Nov 05

Economic Left/Right: 2.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.64

A slight shift to the right, on both scales.

I also have a hard time understanding what a person's views on abstract art have to do with political outlook.

I can see how one could translate that into the Libertarian/Authoritarian category.

(As much as I am not too keen of these labels)
