    I call myself a conservative libertarian, so I'd say it's a fairly accurate test, leaning slightly left.

    I like to think that I can recognise common sense.

    Though one persons sense is often another's nonsense.

    And calling oneself a "conservative libertarian" is like putting one's cards on the table, face down.

    The political compass is not accurate at least for me. I consider myself a libertarian (libright) but this hell of a site put me all the way on the left. When I was an SJW of a sort few years ago(yes, cringy phase, stop) this thing put me in authoritarian right. I hardly consider this accurate. Ben shapiro is the average conservative but this thing put him as a libertarian.

    There are the social moderators, and there are the libtards. There are the traditional folks, and there are the bloodthirsty dictators. There are the cooperators, and there are the watermelons. There are the entrepreneur, and there are the pedos. There are people who know it all, there are people who know nothing other than to grill. There are people who analyze what is good and what is bad, and there are people who just hate them all.

    It is accurate at determining the general area the test-taker belongs in, although I wouldn't trust its precision. Here's my results.

    Interesting. I'm sure it doesn't help that the questions are vague and there isn't a "No Opinion" option.

    That is interesting. It could be that what you think  you are, you're really not. That said, I do know that although Ben has some views that are a bit libertarian, but he is a self-proclaimed "constitutional conservative."

    is a political philosophy that combines conservatism and libertarianism, representing the libertarian wing of conservatism and vice versa

    It's really pretty simple. I'm a libertarian with conservative leanings, and I'm a conservative with libertarian leanings.

    Well I don't know if I am really libertarian left or the test is bad. I support these things.

    • Free Speech
    • Corporations, as long as they do no significant evil to the people
    • Freedom of religion, as long as they do no direct harm
    • Limited gun control
    • Legalize all Abortion in the first 2 trimesters, as well all cases of abortion regarding rape, etc
    • Public healthcare should be of little cost
    • Questioning the authority makes the authority strengthen
    Well what is this, you tell me.

    • Questioning the authority makes the authority strengthen
    This is not a libertarian view, so that may be what is making you appear leftist. Questioning authority is what libertarianism is all about fundamentally.

    • Public healthcare should be of little cost
    If you said "people who can pay should NOT be given higher standards of healthcare" that is a left-slanted view.

    • Legalize all Abortion in the first 2 trimesters, as well all cases of abortion regarding rape, etc
    This is liberal/libertarian shared view depending on who you ask, but I'm guessing with this they put you closer to the liberal side. 

    The rest are libertarian. I think those 3 are what altered your results. You may need to relabel yourself as sorta center-libertarian

    Here is a handy-dandy guide that says you may simply be modern liberal. According to this, I'm a constitutionalist.

    No I meant that By questioning the Authority, it will make problems disappear and by that make it more powerful and likeable by the people.

    Interesting chart. That would make me a classical liberal bordering on constitutionalism.
