Revisiting the Political Compass
Original topic here.

Political Compass here

I'm still floating around Centrism.

Economic Left/Right: 0.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.77

A bit more of a Libertine than I was last time.

Just about where I was last time.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Revisiting the Political Compass
Hmm. I'm a teensy bit more to the center this time, but only about a line over and a line up from 3 years ago.
Here's me in 2011...

Then, I was right on the spot where the Dalai Lama and Nelson Mandela were then. However, now they both seem to have moved quite far toward the center. Consider Makes me a tad skeptical of this "diverse professional team assessing the words and actions of internationally known contemporary leaders".

Here's me NOW....
Economic Left/Right: -4.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.41

Nothin too surprising. I wished a couple of times there was an "unsure" or "no opinion" option. One or two of the issues I just wasn't informed enough to feel one way or the other about.

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

RE: Revisiting the Political Compass
To save viewing space my chart is approximately the same as Kim's 2011 chart. No surprise most of us so far are deep southwest on that compass.

I'd really like to see the actual scoring, and HOW the score weights were derived.

Also, since Hitler didn't actually do this exercise, by what means did they arrive at what his answers would have been? Not that I dispute Hitler's place on the compass, but I can't help but suspect that location is more bias than objectivity.

And did all those world figures do THIS exercise? With their NAME attached to it? That's suspicious too.

Finally, the range of topics was not terribly wide. Is is wide enough to give compass location genuine meaning? That is, you don't need a 1000 person sample size to gauge 1000 people, you only need a statistically sound number (fewer than 100). But I don't think the same statistical "sampling" can be applied to facets of the social architecture, that the whole edifice is sufficiently represented by only a few bricks. Others more statistically learned will have to comment on that.
