  5. I seem to be a Capitalist.
    Social Liberal (65% permissive)
    Economic Conservative (91% permissive)

    I’m not happy that the word “liberal” showed up in there. Clearly I need to reach my more despotic inner self.

  6. Social Moderate (43% permissive)
    Economic Conservative (68% permissive)
    Capitalist

    You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

    On the black/white map, I’m pretty much in the bottom-right corner of the Capitalist section, right next to Republican and Centrist.

  10. My numbers:

    Social Moderate 56% permissive

    Economic Conservative 71% permissive

    That makes me 2% more more of a Capitalist than Patterico, which seems about right.

  14. Patterico:

    As usual, I’m the most extreme person here!

    Librarian: Social liberal, 70% permissive; economic conservative, 95% permissive.

  15. I’m closer to one end of the social scale than you are.

    Here’s a clue: I didn’t hit the “Republican” category. Things like “strongly agree” answers to the questions like “protesters should shut up” turn out to be very good for the social conservative score.

    Angry Clam (a7c6b1)

  16. Enraged Mollusk:

    Aha, you’re right — you are more extreme! We’re both 95% on the economic scale, but you’re 7% more extreme on the social scale (and at the opposite end, of course).

    Part of the problem is that they didn’t ask precise enough questions. In fact, I support abortion rights up to the moment the foetus’s cerebral cortex activates… after which I’m a complete hard-ass anti-abortionist. I suppose that counts as “pro-choice,” but a lot of pro-choicers would disagree.

    There were a number of questions like that where I knew what they were getting at, but the way they worded the question forced me to answer ironically.

    Too, they did nothing to measure relative importance of issues. For example, I oppose the drug war; Bush supports the drug war; but Bush and I agree on the Iraq war, and that is far more important to me… therefore, I support Bush. But reading my score, one might imagine that I was anti-Bush; after all, nearly all self-styled “libertarians” are anti-Bush (which is the prime motivation of my next Lizard’s Tongue column, with a really cool title I expect to steal from Brad Linaweaver, if he lets me get away with it).

    These little clicky things are fun but rather meaningless. Or perhaps they’re fun because they’re meaningless.

  17. Social liberal: 78% permissive
    Economic liberal: 13% permissive

    You are best described as (wait for it…): Socialist.

    ““You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in social justice.”

    Hmm…must have been that whole redistribution-of-wealth thing…heh.

  18. The “[y]ou exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in social justice.” is actually included at the bottom of every single category.

    Because, if you think about it, it’s true- politics is about bickering over what those words mean.

  19. Because, if you think about it, it’s true- politics is about bickering over what those words mean.

    Indeed. “If only it were as clear to everyone else as it is to me,” we all individually think to ourselves.

  20. 61% permissive Social liberal/80% permissive Economic Conservative

    Capitalist
    Donald Trump type.

    Sounds about right, but I prefer Ben Franklin.

  21. I am a libertarian, but on that test I scored 60% permissive (socially liberal->classical liberal) and 96% permissive (economic conservative->classical liberal) which they called a Capitalist. That’s ok, my BBS handle was CapitalistPig :).

  22. Oh yeah, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, price gouging, or social justice. There is such a thing as justice.
