I am tempted to go through it four times and place myself at the extremes of each corner. But won't. Lazy.

It's not difficult to see how to answer each question to produce any desired outcome.

Amazingly it doesn't use JS. So a lesson to all those other sites: You don't need JS to do stuff on the Internet Actually this last paragraph is the main reason I wanted to post, to give props to the site for doing the correct thing, instead of some fancy-pants JS laden thing that breaks too easily.

Practically dead-center of the green section. That doesn't surprise me.

Someone I gave this to suggested that the questions lean a bit to the left.

I get an e-mail once a month from my state representative. It occasionally has a poll filled with passive-aggressive questions. For example, "Does the government give too many benefits to the people who don't work?" or "Should the secretary of state change the results of a fraudulent election" and requires a "yes" or "no" answer. The first question implies that unemployed are not looking for work and thus should get fewer benefits. The second implies that elections are filled with fraud and that the results can be tossed even if there is no evidence of such fraud. The questions are intended to make one angry in a way to make the reader agree with the premise of the question. Now if the question were "How do you feel about the benefits given to the unemployed?" with a range or answer (like this poll), then it takes much of the emotion out of the question. I find passive-aggressive tactics like this quite common from the right. They want their listeners/viewers to be constantly angry.

In my opinion I did not find the questions on this to be passive-aggressive.

Yes, of course you can answer “to produce a desired outcome” but what good does it do to try to fool others and at the same time confuse yourself?

I feel it does not surprise me at all where I ended (in the left, libertarian quadrant but still close to the 0,0 coordinates).
