    I think it's really hard for people to actually get top top left in this test even if they belong there. Some of the questions really set up a "blue square" to "green square" dichotomy, and left authoritarians usually aren't ideological enough to sort of overcome that in the way right-libertarians are. I've seen lots of people with watson's views end up more or less where Spark said on this test, even though if they took one of the other similar ones I think they'd absolutely end up top left.

    Burgey being in the bottom left shows how hard it is given his love of rounding people up

    I've managed to score -10 economically and 3.79 for authoritarian deliberately answering questions to try and sound as authoritarian as possible.

    edit: it would probably be possible to score more authoritarian because I was still answering questions like the "homosexuality is ok" honestly.

    The only person I've seen who actually got a properly-red-square result was basically just a troll anyway.

    What I`m interested in is what is defining the 0.0 point.... how is the centre calculated?

    Did this the other day and came out on the left. I assume this is probably down to vaguely/badly worded questions.

    I think there was one political compass test with a thing of "how much does this question matter to you?" That's useful given these tests usually have a question about something you know **** all about.

    Yeah, there was a question about marijuana in the questionnaire. I have no clue what Marijuana does to people and its legal status in different countries. I don't know what I answered.
