Re: Getting liberal in my old age.
It seems that one either becomes more left or right wing and/or more libertarian or Authoritarian as they age.
5 years ago my score was about 2 right and 1 up from my current graph.

New composite
Sorry, Percy, but I can't chart that. That's out of bounds.

Enjoy.

That's not even authoritarian rightwing, that's like Hitler and Mussolini fusing DNA to become this hideous, rightwing chimera.

Re: Not an authoritarian...
I like the grid test better as well.

Sure would have liked to come out a bit more authoritarian than that.

My mind keeps trying to copy itself. Try as I might to stop it, almost everything I do seems to be some sort of a crude attempt at making copies. Gawd, what an egomaniac.

Compare yourself to a composer!
Here's a composite of some well known composers, see who your closest too!

Looks like I'm around Chopin or Tchaikocsky.

Cavediver seems to be Like Mozart.

Re: Compare yourself to a composer!
I guess I am surprised Wagner was even on the chart.

One thing that would be important to point out is that these composers come from a different time. They come from a period and societies that were on the whole much more authoritarian and rightist.

Re: Compare yourself to a composer!
what has struck me so far is that everybody from EvC who took the test, whether more left or right, has been libertarian.

I guess we all like freedom a lot.

Re: Compare yourself to a composer!
I guess that explains why I never did like Stravinsky. But then I never did like Schoenberg, either
