Sometime last year, someone pointed me toward the Political Compass quiz. I took it, and it came out something like this:
I hung it up outside my door, and several of the faculty and grad students did the same, to create a “political leanings full disclosure.” Since there are several TAs to an office, some of them wrote in their position on shared charts. I thought it would be neat to put together a web page that mapped out a group of people’s scores, but it remained at the bottom of my “to do” pile. Luckily, someone did it for me! And it turns out that I am the most libertarian of the 284 who have added themselves so far. That doesn’t seem right, somehow. Anyway, I agree with the caveats on the page (i.e., this all doesn’t mean that much), but it’s fun to check out.
