    Note: You can remain neutral on a question by clicking 'Next' without answering it, I recommend not doing so if you do lean either way. I did this for a question and retook the quiz after realising it was possible, I got the same result though.


    My best fit is...
    Solid Liberals

    along with 16% of the public.

    Highly educated and politically engaged, Solid Liberals hold consistently liberal values. They back a robust role for government and are strong advocates of the social safety net. Large majorities view the current economic system as unfair and see economic inequality as a major problem. They take broadly positive views of immigrants, and fully 99% think being open to people from around the world is an essential part of the nation’s identity. Most say more needs to be done to address both racial discrimination and obstacles to women’s achievement. They support same-sex marriage and believe homosexuality should be accepted by society. Solid Liberals are the most Democratic of all typology groups: nearly two-thirds (64%) identify as Democrats, another 35% lean toward the Democratic Party.

    More on the types (this is a spoiler and I suggest you DO NOT READ THE FOLLOWING LINK BEFORE TAKING THE QUIZ, it will subconsciously drive you to push for a result you want rather than what you actually are.

    I received the same output as yourself.

    I found the phrasing of each of the questions to be highly misleading.

    In contrast, I found the phrasing of the questions in the POLITICAL COMPASS to be slightly less misleading.

    Economic Left/Right: -8.88
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -10.0

    Your best fit is...
    New Era Enterprisers
    along with 11% of the public.

    This relatively young, economically conservative, Republican-leaning group tends to be relatively moderate on immigration and views about America’s engagement with the rest of the world. Most say U.S. involvement in the global economy is a good thing and that immigrants strengthen the nation. As is the case with other GOP-leaning groups, a majority of New Era Enterprisers reject the idea that racial discrimination is the main reason many black people are unable to get ahead. Nearly two-thirds favor societal acceptance of homosexuality. New Era Enterprisers are less critical about government than other Republican-leaning groups.
    Ehhh somewhat accurate. I'm pretty critical of the government, but the rest seems accurate.

    Yeah, it's interesting how many factions end up under the same umbrella under this two party system. Whether that's a good or bad thing depends on who you ask

    True. Still, it could be argued that the faction-building that it requires from politicians is a positive thing as it gets minorities heard.

    And it has the added benefit of making sure they almost never get the 5% required to be recognized as their own party.

    I wouldn't consider myself a Core Conservative. While I do have some of those beliefs (such as less govt regulation), I do not identify with Core Conservatism. I also don't think we should lower taxes on the rich, but we should instate a flat tax where if you make over a certain amount, then you are unable to receive tax cuts. I believe a Progressive Tax is harmful to our society. While I do think the US itself should have the most priority, we should focus on other allies to help them. But I allign with the New Era besides the govt trust. I believe immigrants are beneficial, and while my religion considers homosexuality a sin, I do not believe it should be illegal. However, I do not support taxes that make it so we have to pay for abortions, gender switches. I believe that government dipping their fingers into these violates the constitution. I also don't have a problem with basic regulation, but overregulation is harmful

    Core Conservatives support Flat Tax and are moderately isolationist in the way you described your stance.

    Only thing is I don't support isolationism. It's ultimately human instinct to get the best out of anything, but I don't think isolating ourselves from the world is beneficial. I do thing that immigration should be easier and the process can be easier and immigrants benefit our economy. I am very much Anti-Isolationism

    I still firmly see you as a core conservative on that scale, who maybe is transitioning. After all, Core Conservatives supported the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. They are moderately isolationist and tend to sit back and be neutral when the country-first Convervatives want to aggress hard or isolate (country first are bipolar with the issue, it depends).

    I also got "Solid Liberal."

    I really like the analytics showing where you are relative to people of your political leanings and the general population.

    Welcome to the left wing. :)
    JOE BIDEN IS ACTUALLY TO THE RIGHT OF DONALD TRUMP ON THE POLITICAL COMPASS.

    In modern politics "left" and "right" are swapping sides all the time.

    It's a war over mere centimeters.

    Political compass is a superficial test that ignores reasoning behind values and focuses only on chosen values in ultimatums that don't represent real situations.

    Try it.

    POLITICAL COMPASS IS SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ACCURATE THAN YOUR "LEFT" VS. "RIGHT" (ONE DIMENSIONAL) SCALE.

    I have, multiple times. I understand what it's ranking based on so I know how to get the result I want.

    One of the dumbest questions on it is 'If corporations serve the interests of humanity, it is in our best interest to enable them' or something like that. The answer is always strongly agree if we take the 'if' question to genuinely be 'if'. The fact it uses belief in astrology to determine alignment, among other arbitrary things like attitude towards pornography which is a very oddly put question as well as 'respecting privacy of all consenting adults behind closed doors' which could be doing heinous things such as building a terrible device or planning a very devastating coup, not just having BDSM sex, is a sign of a very flawed quiz/test. A lot of the questions are terribly one-answer-is-always-correct based on literal interpretation, while others require a neutral response and there is no neutral answer option.

    Where did you land?

    One of the dumbest questions on it is 'If corporations serve the interests of humanity, it is in our best interest to enable them' or something like that.
    This is a perfect question.

    (IFF) some or even most corporations were "good" (THEN) would you support corporate rights and corporate power?

    The answer is "NEVER".

    IT'S EXACTLY THE SAME AS ASKING "IF KINGS PROTECTED PEOPLE, WOULD YOU SUPPORT KINGS?"

    The answer is always strongly agree if we tske the 'if' question to genuinely be 'if'.
    NOPE.

    The fact it uses belief in astrology to determine alignment, among pther arbitrary things like attitude towards pornography which is a very oddly put question
    These are also fantastic questions.

    People who believe in astrology are generally less intellectually rigorous.

    Nobody is going to honestly answer a direct question like, "Are you generally less intellectually rigorous?"

    Anti-pornography advocates are against personal freedom and personal privacy.

    Nobody is going to honestly answer a direct question like, "Are you against personal freedom and personal privacy?"

    as well as 'respecting privacy of all consenting adults behind closed doors' which could be doing heinous things such as building a terrible device or planning a very devastating coup, not just having BDSM sex, is a sign of a very flawed quiz/test.
    This is precisely the point.

    (IFF) you only believe in personal privacy for some things but not other things (THEN) YOU ARE ANTI-PRIVACY

    A lot of the questions are terribly one-answer-is-always-correct based on literal interpretation,
    Only you think they are obviously one-sided.

    while others require a neutral response and there is no neutral answer option.
    There are 4 options, two on the fence line and two firmly in one camp or the other.

    Not only me, many people from both wings and all four quadrants have complained about the quiz being extremely overrated, considering how flawed it is.

    You even proved that in your eyes there's only one correct answer to a type of question they ask.

    You're entitled to make another repeat thread of political compass results, which has been done before even on this website itself, twice or three times and gotten the same complaints each time.

    You don't need to turn this thread into an advertisement for your favorite quiz.
