What's Your Political Compass?

Discover your place on the political spectrum! This quiz will let you know where you fall on social liberties, economics, foreign policy-- even the culture war. In truth, this isn't a quiz so much as a set of statements that you must agree or disagree with. Based on your responses we will place you on a graph--also termed a political compass--that separates social liberties from economic opinion. We will also show you what type of foreign policy you support, and how liberal or conservative you rank in the culture war.

To discover your political labels, there are two pages of statements for you to respond to. Specify how much you agree or disagree with each. You may also specify how much each statement "matters" to you relative to the others (that is to say, just because you strongly agree with something does not mean it matters greatly to you). We'll find where you stand on the political spectrum as soon as you respond to each, starting below.

If you'd like to play with the data gathered by this quiz, try our demographic comparison tool! We've done some fun things with it, like these political maps of the US.

My Results:

IMO, my results were skewed due to the fact that I answered most of the questions, "I could give a flying fuck." Where I do care: 1st, 2nd & 4th Amendments to the Constitution. Foreign policy: obviously, I'm an isolationist -- who can't wait to win a massive Powerball jackpot and buy my own island and establish my own country. See ya!
