For some reason the image won't show, even though I know I'm doing everything right, but anyway I'm:
Economic Left/Right: -5.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.56
Apparently I'm very like Gandhi, even though he claimed that a person only needed to have sex four times in their entire lives :(

But I agree with a few of the previous comments about there being a lack of "neutral" options, and how important is this question to you metre.

Your link doesn't have a image extension munster you need to save image locally or take the images URL and not the display page and re-host it.

I'm still kind of intrigued by the red block. It seems to me that leftist economic policies rather precludes authoritarian government except in very rare cases.
How they got Robert Mugabe into the section is beyond me. He may have made left-sounding noises as a very young politician; but his regime has been characterised by cronyism, nepotism and extreme personal corruption. He has established an elite inner circle of super-privileged members without making good on any of his social programs that promised to redistribute wealth & property to the people.

I guess it would cover the totalitarian version of communism e.g as practiced in the USSR, i.e. not proper communism. Stalin, Ceausescu, Tito and Kim Jong Il probably belong here. They all espoused leftist ideals, but delivered only totalitarian dictatorship. Maybe that's why Mugabe's there too, for what he says, rather than what he does. But I agree, he seems out of place here.

HI Tulip, how did you manage to do it in a Dutch version? I can not see any link to The Netherlands.
It appears to be also very much anglo-saxon based. It would be interesting to have one designed for the Mediterranean countries (and do not start talking about Berlusconi :x )

We have one that states which parties fit your opinion best but it is all in dutch.
Pope says atheists pick & choose their morals. Correct. Today I will be frowning on child abuse & not having a problem with homosexuality.

I have found the Italian version in the meantime. No real change from the results with the Irish version...

How is it going with your new TV career? :)
