My Political Compass 2003, 2024

It seems rare that an internet quizzes would stick around for decades.

In March 2003 I linked to and took their quiz, and the results were included in my post Just More Misc, Nothing Personal Today:

My political compass is apparently:
Economic Left/Right: -3.25
Authoritarian/Libertarian: -4.87 — what’s yours?

I took it again today. I got results.

Economic Left/Right: -6.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.10

It appears I am drifting to the left as I age. Given the state of the world, it seems likely I’ll continue this slow drift left.


I hope the world is better in another 21 years.

two comments so far...

I always find these kind of things really fun! I just took it and here are my results:

Economic Left/Right: -9.0
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -9.49

I took it several years ago, and I don’t remember what exactly I got but I think it was in this ballpark. Before that, I was already in the liberal/progressive camp but I think a lot of my leftward shift happened over the course of the Trump presidency.

I am slightly more to the left of you – and a tad more authoritarian – but I suspect one answer can throw that out. BUT – the phrasing of some of the questions are context sensitive and a little – ‘well it depends’ – but pretty much on the money
