Political Compass - it is silly but fun.
Wouldn't read too much into it.

FWIW I am about {-4,-6} which puts me near the Dalai Lama.

Who knew.

I'm way over at {-6.1, -6.3}. I can almost see the Dalai Lama from here. --anon dean

The nearest lattice point to me is
(-8, -9). If only they had labelled
the axes so I can figure where I stand
wrt Mandela and the Dalai Lama.
I once took the Adorno F-test along with
a bunch of nuclear physicists, to
our amazement it turned out that all the
theorists were to the left of all the
experimentalists (and happy to say I was
even more left than the theorists)

As far as I can tell, everyone from normal (i.e. non-US) parts of the world, comes out near to the Dalai Lama. Everyone I know does, including me.

The political compass seems to be suitable for differentation by politics within the US, but sort of lumps everyone else into "sarong wrapped social democrat pacifist liberal".

If you're interested in a similar "test".

I found myself putting very few "Strongly (dis)agree"s on anything...didn't realize I felt this passive on so many things! :) I got:

Economic Left/Right: -0.13
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -3.08

Funny. I would have thought myself further down and to the right. Maybe I'm a more tolerant Ayn Rand. Interesting test though ;)

The one thing it definitely could have used is a "Neither agree nor disagree" option for those issues we don't really know about!!
