Accuracy Of The Political Compass Model

Post by Odious on Mon Dec 28, 2015 4:40 pm

Now the political compass model is a much more accurate representation of one's political leanings instead of the usual left/right 2-dimensional plane of thinking. Many people have based their opinions off of this compass and many others still think it's not an accurate enough representation to officially count as an accurate form of measurement for one's political philosophies in the sense that it is poor to differentiate between social and political thoughts in a separate manner entirely.

What is everyone else's take on the model above?

I agree that this is a more accurate model; left-wing/right-wing doesn't capture the variety of permutations of views on the economic and social planes.

I actually really like it. I think it fits well, but it is only asking you questions that would determine what you are. the thing is, people often say they are one thing, and then get another thing on the compass. then they just complain that it's not accurate.

That doesn't mean it's not accurate, it just means that they aren't exactly what they think they are.

I was rather surprised by my results. I like to think I am more moderate than it shows.
