No Surprise Here

Well, perhaps I am a little surprised at my low score on social issues. But then Virginia Centrist turned out to be a libertarian, and erstwhile libertarian Shaun Kenney turned out to be a centrist! The Red Stater, by contrast, ended up right where he expected to be.

The test that results in these charts is flawed and not nearly as good as the World's Smallest Political Quiz, which Marshall Fritz developed as a way to bring the Nolan Chart to life. Through Advocates for Self Government, the Libertarian Party, and other groups, the WSPQ has been field-tested and polished over the years so that it more accurately reflects the way people really think. (I score 100-100 on the WSPQ, a firm "libertarian.") The problem with this test on OK Cupid (one problem among others) is that it gives no option for "no opinion" or "neither agree nor disagree."

Consequently, this is for entertainment purposes only.
