Then they should've asked that. My love for personality tests isn't potent enough to forgive such failures, nor does it exist. I'm no Chibi Seme.

There really are a bunch of dumb, overly vague and odd questions included.

As anticipated, really, I expected it to be a tiny bit more towards the right, though.

I do prefer that one as it gives a better breakdown (and allows for neutral responses). I have always found that that one gives a more pronounced position than politicalcompass.org :P

Not going to give every answer for this one as the questions are very similar.

The questions in this poll are quite flawed and haven't been updated since it started circulating and it gives only a very general idea of where one stands. Even some people I met with nearly identical coordinates on the chart in conversation revealed views almost diametrically opposed to mine. But here goes.

Image

I categorize myself as a minarchist libertarian, i.e. I oppose the use of force unless force has been initiated, which in effect means the functions of government must be stripped down to the protection of the rights to life, freedom and property, while its every other current function, such as taxation and regulation, is a direct violation thereof.

Took the other one, too. Seems to be more accurate, although if I'm almost all the way at the bottom right, it doesn't leave much room for anarcho-capitalists.

I took the alternative one because the original never seemed that accurate when I did it in the past, and:

I know right? I love these kinds of things, don't take em seriously but it can be fun. I used to do those ridiculous, "Which [movie] character are you" things and "How gay are you?" ones.

Aww, look, we have similar political leanings, wanna start a new political part Zoop? We could storm the elections and run the country!

:awesome:

And I'd be so down for that! :D May and Corbyn would be shaking in their boots :P

:lol:
yeauxleaux and I shall sit on the fence and watch Brenden and Zoop take up the more radical policies!

Care for a drink Yeauxleaux? This could be entertaining :P

I kinda suspect most people here will be on the liberal side, I had expected to be more Authoritarian, kinda in line with Marmadukes old result from years back so this was surprising.

I took both mainly because I thought the first one was surprising. but they both came out similar. :shrug:

Although I'm happy to discuss differing views, and I'm sometimes even open to persuasion, I have never been comfortable sitting on a fence.
