Where do you land on the Political Compass?

I ran across a very interesting site today, Political Compass. It asks the user a series of questions ranging from economic to social areas. It’s not one of those silly five question, are you Democrat or Republican deals, but seems to be a rather good evaluation of where one stands on the political roadmap.

I ended up with the following scores:
– Economic Left/Right: -4.75
– Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -6.15

Comparing my scores to some of the more famous political figures of our time, I was very close to the same results as The Dalai Lama, and relatively close to Nelson Mandela and Ghandi. Not too bad. Not surprisingly, my ideological opposite who was almost a mirror image of my position…George W. Bush. Who would have guessed?
