Well, it's a bit of a cheat, really. Shy

The questions relied on stereotypical biases leading to a particular, expected stereotypical extreme. There is a reason why there was no "neutral" position to choose... it was a measurement of extremes.

Extremes have little to do with the large bell curve where the actual majority of a population sits.

We are all pretty left leaning here it would seem.

I used to be almost dead center, leaning left, on a similar kind of quiz.

Not to pat ourselves on the back too hard, but the left is always the position of progressives. We, in general, are pro personal freedoms (which includes sexual freedom, and the freedom "from" religion in addition to freedom "of" religion). We, in general, tend to be more educated on current events and globally conscious. We live in the era where capitalism is not always a good thing. These results don't surprise me.

I guess I'm pretty moderate compared to most people on here eh? Definitely have to answer like an asshole to get on the right it seems. I agree that this test seems to push the left issues more based on wording and no middle option, very little room for circumstantial considerations.

Personally, I much preferred this political quiz due to the wide range of "Choose another stance" options, however I don't like the output as much (I rather like the graph). I guess it's more helpful when it comes time to vote though.

nope,no such thing as "right click" on my phone.

On your cell, you should be able to do "press and hold" for a second or two, which ought to be equal to "right click" on a PC, and a menu should show up with one option name like "Info" or "Properties" that will ultimately lead you to the URL of the pic.

Want something? Then do something.
