Apparently I stand just left of centre and am a liberal
c. 2016 onwards

In 2016 I first sat the political compass test. Before then I had thought of myself as a socially modern liberal but fiscally conservative person. After the test I was told I was staunchly in the middle of the third quadrant of the political compass. I expected to be further left and closer to the x-axis but the test refused to oblige. I sat the test a few more times over the next few years and the result remained the same. The last time I sat this test was in December of 2019. You can see the latest graph which is quite representative of its predecessors. I am unsure about the accuracy of this test (although I have seen many people believe it is reasonably accurate, even academically) but it certainly is a fun activity to partake in.
