      Hardcore socialist (becoming a lot more extreme), social liberal (becoming more extreme), leaning towards pacifism, with a dash of anarchism (diminishing every year).

      Code:

      It's a fair cop.

                      A comparison of the self-reported results. I may have made some sign errors so please check yours.

                      First chart: same scale as the website. The term to the left of the slash is positive number, to the right negative. Hence, NeoCon/NonInt means a positive number is towards Neo-Conservativism, negative towards Non-Interventionist. The website slashed all the terms as Rightish/Leftish.

                      Code:
                      2020		   Right/Left	  Auth/Libert	NeoCon/NonInt	      Con/Lib
                      Kepler			-9.30		-3.08		-5.45		-8.21
                      dxmnkd			-5.57		-5.90		-5.28		-8.90
                      psych			-8.42		-4.89		-7.54		-9.87
                      busterman62		 0.46		-1.22		-0.96		-2.16
                      SonofSouthie		-6.64		-2.87		-4.38		-6.97
                      cf[Authentic]		-5.76		-0.83		
                      FadeToBlack&Gold	-4.99		-0.20
                      Second chart: I normalized on a scale of 100 against the positive term. Hence, my "4" for Right (Economic) is 4%, where 0% would be Perfect Socialist, 50% Neutral, and 100% Perfect Laissez Faire.

                      Code:
                      Norm 2020	     Right   Authoritarian	   Neo-Con   	   Conserv
                      Kepler			 4		35		23		 9
                      dxmnkd			22		21		24		 6
                      psych			 8		26		12		 1
                      busterman62		52		44		45		39
                      SonofSouthie		17		36		28		15
                      cf[Authentic]		21		46		
                      FadeToBlack&Gold	25		49
                      
                      mean    		21		36		26		14
                      I've sent to a bunch of friends and will add their results (masked with names from the 1973 Mets) to add to the data set, so if you know anybody please do the same. Obviously, real data only.

                      Thinking about it, this could be a good measure of our bubbles. If the mean of my friends under Right (Market) is 2, welp, that tells me something.

                        I hate these things though because somewhere around half the questions I wanted to say "it depends."

                          Itís not perfect but the questions have more or less stayed consistent and itís interesting to see the trends over the years. Not a lot of quizzes give you that somewhat consistent barometer.

                              I handle "it depends" by dialing the intensity down (even though sometimes I am balancing opposing situations which I still have strong feelings about).

                              I know what you mean but this one stacks up pretty well against most of the quizzes out there.

                                The biggest move was really from 2009-2017 when I realized how ashamed I was to call myself a Republican and that my views no longer matched what I had grown up believing.

                                It's been a pretty big 180 and I'm a registered Democrat for the first time in my life.

                                Moving to Germany accounts for the additional swing over the last year, but it had already moved some in 2018 when I first got here.
