The Political Compass

Today I sat The Political Compass test. The test places you somewhere on a political plane. There are two axis, both ranging between -10 and 10. The horizontal axis measures your economic left/rightedness (negative score means left, positive is right). The vertical axis represents your social views, positive means that you are more authoritarian, negative means that you are more libertarian. My score:
Economic left/right: -9.12
Social libertarian/authoritarian: -6.41.
Apparently these scores put me slightly to the social left of Gandhi and the Dalai Lama...
Interestingly, John Howard is on the scale and is a little to the left and down a bit from George W. Bush.
