I am a sucker for personal analysis: What kind of thinker are you? How well do you work in a team? etc etc. This kind of quiz can be used for professional purposes (such as the Myers Briggs tests) to understand the make-up of an organisation or team or for entertainment (I’m thinking of quizzes in magazines such as Cosmopolitan here).
Anyway, I came across a new puzzle, that expands on the traditional right/ left political description. It is called the political compass and it you too can take it on-line. I had some sneaking suspicions about where my politics lay. Boy, was I wrong.
In the spirit of a secret ballot I am not going to publish my political compass, but I can say that although I had some sneaking suspicions about where my politics lay, boy, was I wrong.
I have no idea if my score on the political compass is good, bad or indifferent. But it sure wasn’t what I expected. Either that or I am reading the numbers all wrong.
