But I'm wondering why radical right-centrism (, but The US Term is Libertarian but everywhere else libertarian is a left ideology nvm>.<) is so "in" when it gets an adult child like Trump elected, a pres with a US approval rating avg. of 43% plus or minus. OH WAIT. CAPITALISM GAVE US CRUNCHYROLL, ANIME , and VIDYA GAMEZ DOHH

Don't know I'm a centrist I guess, I was a little surprised I thought I'd end up being more traditional or more authoritarian. It's sort of a shame to be honest, it's not really interesting that I'm so balanced in everything.

As the results show, I'm not some radical a good chunk of modern Dems make me out to be. Heck, 10 years ago I'd be called a mainstream Democrat

Proud blue-collar independent.

Left and Right is all relative though. The US is in general more Conservative than a lot of our international counterparts. Our left wing party is what many would consider moderate in other countries and our right wing party is further to the right than most other's Conservative parties. Actually, in retrospect our left wing party became moderate when Bill Clinton tried to capitalize on the popularity of Ronald Reagan and helped promote an ideology called Third Way which called for a much more moderate or right wing fiscal policy for the Democratic party.
Also, a lot of it has to do with a higher religious population than our more secular Western Democracy counterparts (although this is changing) and a general distrust of a large, unchecked Federal government that goes back to our nation's founding. Different countries' citizens have a different range of value sets, ideologies and histories. In a way, having a uniform definition as to what is a "Liberal" or a "Conservative" from an International viewpoint might be difficult to impossible.

For us Americans, a Libertarian is usually somebody is "socially left" (less restrictive, less authoritarian) and "fiscally right" (less restrictive, anti-government market intervention). The left/right thing gets really confusing though, since somebody who is a neoliberal with things like trade and markets is considered on the fiscal right, it's a terminology mess for sure

Thought it would be half way interesting to retake it and compare to see what coming up on a year has done to me.






I seem to be drifting slightly. Another year of Trump and I'll be ready to rise up against the bourgeoisie.

Kind of where I'd thought I'd be. I've found more value is religious philosophy as I've aged, but I still score high in openness and creativity in most tests so it's no surprise to me that I'm fairly left by most metrics.

Centrist, Balanced, Moderate, and Neutral. Very, very vague wording, but I'm not surprised with my results.

Not a bad test, but it does force you to take some binary answers, which can easily fudge the results. For example "progress at all cost is dangerous" [sic]. Well yeah, but admitting that it's dangerous, doesn't mean that I'm not in favor of at least somewhat taking that approach.
