That'll be the Political Compass. I'm usually down the bottom left with Gandhi.

You have Enemies? Good. It means you've stood up for something in your life.

They've updated it since I last saw it. It's remarkable how half of those clustered in the top right are nominally leftist. It either reflects the shifting center or a bias on the part of the compilers. Probably the latter.

I kinda remember this - threes prolly a thread in the old forum with our old results if anyone wants to search. I dont remember my old results. Gillard is "right" though i think it is the shifting line. There is no longer any difference between the parties in australia. Different governments carry on each other plans and policies and gawd look @ cambell newman he is scary - i wish i could leave QLD.

For the first time ever i actually remembered to pull out a few questions i found suss:

These are the only 2 options?
Controlling inflation is more important than controlling unemployment.


This one struck me as weird. Theres no alternative there and it seems to kinda insinuate something:
It is a waste of time to try to rehabilitate some criminals.


Just the wording of this one is weird:
Multinational companies are unethically exploiting the plant genetic resources of developing countries.


WTF?
Astrology accurately explains many things.


Anyway i could pulled more out but this test is way fairer than the other one so who cares.
