What Shade Are You?

For the love of God, don't ask me to remember where I saw this quiz originally. Someone's blog. [Duh.] The designers of the test are at The Political Compass. You can go see where on the scale you fall. After you read this, of course. [Or now because I don't really care if you spend an additional .2 minutes reading this or taking the test.]

What's it all mean? Well, the result in words might be confusing to those of us long in the tooth and short on brain cells. My political compass is:

Economic Left/Right: -3.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.87


Uh, yeah, thanks. But when you look at the graph, oooooooooh, it's purty and purty darn self-explanatory. See:


Gosh, I'm just so darn surprised. Me, left-leaning economically speaking? Me, more libertarian than authoritarian socially speaking? [Duh.] So who does this make me most like? Guess. Go on, guess.

Gandhi. Me and Mahatma, baby, we're two peas in a pod.

How funny is that. We are almost exactly the same. I'm -3.75 economic left/right, and -2.87 social libertarian. Cue the eerie music...
