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.

Economic Left/Right: -6.00
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)

It's true, Zoomerang96 is saluting his supreme white leader from where I stand, and I can see it guys. I kind of wish he'd stop, but if wishes were fishes, we'd all eat for a day, right?

'Horrifyingly far to the right' is a slight understatement in the circumstances.

Can't seem to load the pic but I'm near where I usually am:

Economic Left/Right: -7.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.05

Agreed with Melon and others re: the wording of the questions. Not just the rather black/white nature of some of them but how transparent some of it is. If you go in with a preconceived idea of what you are (socialist/socian democrat, libertarian, centrist etc) it's easy to answer accordingly I think. These will be popping up though as we near November.
