It has indeed been done before but it's always good to see where others on the bored stand.

I'm very much down in the bottom left btw.

It’s interesting but their analysis of where famous people or parties sit is questionable. I recall them saying ACT (a liberal party in nz) were extremely authoritarian. Or something to that effect.

Which is a bit further left than I thought it would be, then again, the questions did feel quite American and I'm probably a full blown progressive, commie, antifa cell leader by their standards.

New results say I've gotten more lefty economically but also more authoritarian.

Most authoritarian so far it seems :smug:

(here's the thread, if anyone else also did one in the past and wants to see how they've changed...or haven't)

Which questions did people have the most problems with?

The one about richer people buying access to better healthcare was a bit of a problem for me because as long as everyone has access to good healthcare then I have no problem with people buying better healthcare but I don't know how the survey views that question.

Also:
The businessperson and the manufacturer are more important than the writer and the artist.
Often times they can be the same thing.

Agree with healthcare question and agree with your post.
Artist question I disagreed but really in the middle.

Hello comrades. :lol:

There were some questions where I was in the middle, but it forced you to pick a different. Artist/manufacturer one, for example.

Yup. Think I was slightly more vertical of the dot socially - 4.3 for both.
