My position on the political compass

I've tried this kind of test before several times and they mostly give similar results, although the test this time around was much more 'transparent' than a couple I have tried before which seemed mainly desgined for an American audience.

However, the important thing is that this much more 'culturally neutral' test has produced more or less the result I expected:

Economic Left/Right: 5.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.67

What this means is that I am a little less to the right in economic matters than Milton Friedman, although I am still well to the right,
I am somewhat more 'libertarian' on social matters than him.

Try it for yourself here.
