How liberal are you?

How liberal are you politically? Well, go check it out here, in the world's smallest political quiz.

The red dot above is me. Got the link from Greg Mankiw's ever-resourceful blog.


  • My red dot is just one node away from yours, to the northeast.

    from Cafe Hayek:
    "...."conservative" meant 'people who want government out of your pocketbook but in your bedroom',.... "liberal" [meant] 'people who want government in your pocketbook but not in your bedroom'..."

  • Turned out mine is also (just) one node away from yours, but to the west/left.

    This kinda game is fun. But I won't hold on too tightly to categories. Although overall I may fall in the "liberal" box, there are times when I'm inside other boxes.

  • i'm actually on your spot exactly. not sure what that says about me, maybe it's that tax question. Can this gov't really cut tax?? is that even a feasible option at the moment?

    anyway, in the spirit of quotes, here's one (i think it's mark twain, but not sure), "A liberal is a person whose interests aren't at stake at the moment."

  • Context makes all the difference.

    T/S, I agree -- given the small number of questions, I think the tax question makes the difference between those living abroad and here in Indonesia.

  • took this a short while ago and was told that I am centrist ha..ha. My dot is right on the uper left corner of the centrist box. (where libertarian and left intersects). Guess that makes me get along well with McCain, supposedly.
    I guess it also depends on which system you currently live in and whether you condider yourself a practitioner or an academic..;)
    My guess is more people who live in Indonesia would tend to fall on the further left side, except those few pure economists .he...he..

  • i'm surprised too, to find out that my red dot is exactly in the middle of liberal left. never really feel so left.
    but more surprise that my friends here are all libertarians :)) no problem with me, though. cool cool.

  • me:conservative.

    i think there's a paper that shows sons tend to make the parents more conservative, and daughters more liberals.
