This is an interesting test- instead of just letting you know if you're right-wing or left-wing, it puts you in 4 quadrants:

-Right authoritarian
-Left authoritarian
-Right libertarian
-Left libertarian

Pretty interesting in my books. It also tells you where famous people in the world today and from history stand.

Economic Left/Right -6.62
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian -2.15

I am slightly more leaning to authoritarism than Ghandi, but other than that have similar values.

I find it kind of interesting as I was considered a hard conservative by my first university's leftist lecturers. I wonder how much I have mellowed since then or whether lifes experiences have just made me more aware of other issues.

Left/Right: -6.12
Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.51

Pretty close to Ghandi's dot, but a bit less authoritarian. Stop being such a fascist, Ghandi.

Yeah, I forgot to post my score on the first go-round, and now it is slightly different. I think the first test was -6 something and -4, etc., and now it is:

Economic left/right: -5.38
Social lib/author: -5.33
