I think this quiz really needs a "neutral" option.

Aobaru's not alone! ... sort of.

Anyways, my chart:



Economic Left/Right: 5.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.26

And yeah, this test really needs a neutral option.

Not surprising, I guess. "Some people are naturally unlucky" threw me off a little, though.

Is that some kind of political challenge? If so, I am sure the Serious Business board could handle a nice political skirmish.

Otherwise, this is hardly the place to question political values - this is all a number's game and can mean anything. It all comes down to the issues in the long run...

I noticed that pretty much all of us are below the x-axis on the compass. Do you think this might be because we're all young?

You might have a point. Wikipedia defines authoritarianism as "a form of social organization characterized by submission to authority" and libertarianism as "the advocacy of individual liberty", which might be sort of self-explanatory, depending on how you look at it.

It could just be a broader form of the like attracts like idea, too, though.

That could explain why MD is the only one who got above the line.

Re: lack of a neutral option: In a lot of quizzes that sort of thing is intentional--if you give most people a middle road they're going to be inclined to just take that almost every time unless they have really really strong opinions. Only having four options forces them to think about their opinion rather than just shrugging it off and picking the middle. (Though it's not very helpful for the times when, at the end of the day, you really are actually neutral about it!)

Took it, fell somewhere in the half of the green quadrant closer to center, didn't really pay attention to the numbers or bother saving the image. Oh well.
