    Results for me:

    Centrist
    Centrist prefer a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice. Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind, tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

    Advocates for Self Government

    tho this test is basically designed to promote libertarianism rather than to evaluate your political compass. Note the position of Libertarian at the top of the scale and the arbitrary dichotomies that compose the test.

    I realize this test is like any poll you ask certain questions to steer the person in the direction you want them to go. But for me it was fun to take.

    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 60%


    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 70%


    According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...
    Centrist prefer a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice. Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind, tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.


    My little red dot was right on the line between Centrist and Libertarian, almost in the middle, but slightly to the right.

    I follow what Samuel Adams called "Democratic Republicanism"

    i don't know if this quiz is nuanced enough to be very accurate, but here is what I got:

    Advocates for Self Government
