My political inclination

Vault dweller showed me a very interesting test on my political inclination. Since the hottest topic these days is about election, and I've no idea which side I'm on, I took a test that he linked to me. You can try the test here and do write it in the comments so that we can compare notes :) The test is quite long, around 6 pages worth of short questions in which you have to answer 4 choices : strong disagree, disagree, agree and strongly agree. After that, they will show you an analysis of your political inclination together with snapshots of the results that  famous politicians will show with this test.


Here's my result:

This is the typical quadrant:


These are the famous politicans:


And this is my result:


Looks like my political inclination belong to the libertarian leftist :) I'm more alike politically to Gandhi and Dalai Lama and most unlike George Bush and Margaret Thatcher, haha! You should really try out the test :)

LP, on a side note, I wondered how the PAP will do on this test, so I tried the test using what I thought the leaders of PAP will do, and I got a result somewhere near Ehud Olmert, haha!

Hi Patty,

You're about the only one with right leanings :)

Hi Evo and Grey and AK

You're all quite politically neutral person :) I think Grey is what D&D fans call a True neutral person, haha

Correction. I am a freedom loving individual and I am right! ;)

"A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself." - Milton Friedman

Hi Patty,

If those that are right had left, does it mean that those who are left are right? ;) hahaha!

On a serious note, I'm also a freedom loving person but I'm left leh...how to reconcile that? haha

Here - http://leftlibertarian.org/leftlibertarianism.html

Basically, left libertarians mean they abhor government control as much as corporate control since there are no true state-free economies and corporations (both US and SG) and thus, the right cannot claim to be as free as the left. Oh well, 2 sides to every story right?

I still love my brothers on the any sides as long as we all adore personal freedom. ;)
