Here is a site that provides a survey which can help you to find out your political preferences. Politics is not by any means my strong side, so I was rather interested to see who am I (or rather who they think I am).
There are 6 parts to the survey with questions on subjects varying from sex and religion to politics and economy. Overall it is quick and easy to follow with a couple of words to look up in the dictionary. :)
My results are – slightly more left, then right (Economic Left/Right: -0.75) and a lot more libertarian then authoritarian (Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.87). Explantions are available from the site. They also show survey results for some public figures (those figures didn’t take the survey, but were analyzed based on their words and actions). There is also a list of suggested reading by those who have similar ideas to yours or by those who have contrasting ideas to yours.
