    I don't really know anyone's positions here well enough, so I took this spectrum quiz on Kamala Harris's behalf. (prob. close to the CarlosCA guy too though)

    interesting, isnt it... taken it as someone else gives you more insight into their beliefs, as well as them gaining insight into how they are percieved by others...

    Depends on how introspective and honest one is with themselves (we do / can have insights into the thoughts, motivations & intentions of our hearts) unlike with others. True dat', w/ your later point on insight into others.

    For instance, This epic cat fight that surfaced in doing my due diligence "vetting" on Kamala. (thoughts & intentions of her heart?) if one can sit through it, lol.

    the 'extremes' become useful, compare them to their everyday comments, that'll expose them for what they are...

    i'll view the 'tube' next time i'm at my terminal... i've blocked all media on 'the smart aleck' , aka phone...

    You seem to be getting an awful lot wrong.

    It's not me struggling with the test, scores and the reasons behind the results.

    You should concentrate on your own score and try to determine what went wrong.

    Apparently the first test was pretty accurate, anyway, because this one came out almost the same:

    Does this mean I have to stop calling myself a far right-winger?

    nah, anything 'right' of 3 points left of center is considered 'far right' by most lefties ;)

    The problem with these test is they present false arguments and false premises such as

    "The only social responsibility of a company should be to deliver a profit to its shareholders." The profit to the shareholders is not a social responsibility. It's a fiduciary responsibility. And it's not an either or situation. If the company has the funds to engage in "social responsibility" great.

    Or
    "Because corporations cannot be trusted to voluntarily protect the environment, they require regulation."
    You have to agree with the false premise, "Because corporations cannot be trusted to voluntarily protect the environment", in order to answer yes or no they require regulation.

    Or

    "Governments should penalise businesses that mislead the public."
    Misled how? Real fraud? Of course. "And OUR toothpaste will give you the freshest smile of any other brand!" No.

    Taking into account all the phony questions and false premises. I would have expected more to the lower right.


    Your Political Compass
    Economic Left/Right: 4.63
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 0.56

    [​IMG] I'm just a little more authoritarian than you, and a little less to the right.
