Political self-sorting

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.

    That’s pretty neat. It’s kind of cool to see my SMJ all the way on the left. =)
