Two-dimensional compasses are so 19th Century, and very undependable. I choose the bright light of science to go where I will.

As a former Math Prof. of mine would say:  "Well aren't you something!"

That test is so full of fail.

Charts like this are cute but don't deal in specifics so two people in the exact same spot on the chart could literally disagree on 80% of what they think should be done. 

I'll keep my politics out of your economics if you keep your economics out of my politics.

Economic Left/Right: -3.75
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.10

Pretty accurate. Just gotta be honest with yourself, and the questions.

Socially I am a socialist. Economically I feel that I am pretty centrist.

The test is stupid, very stupid. If lower on the graph represents higher civil liberties and more right respresents more economic liberties such as property rights then I'd go here:

Not all people agree on what "economic liberties" are. For some people, their idea of economic liberty is what you call trespass. For some people, the right to monopolize the product of your intellectual labor is just as legitimate as the right to physical property, and they might even have a point - in terms of economic impact, sneaking into movie theaters (trespass) and copyright infringement for personal use can get scarily similar to each other. For other people, this same logic is why only consumptive use of someone else's property should constitute a property rights violation, and from there it's only two steps to Proudhonianism (lower left corner on this scale).

Freedoms to destroy freedoms can not cause freedom.

The problem is that that's a circular argument. If you believe that being able to fence off any land you grab before anyone else is a freedom, then yes, trespass is a violation of that freedom. But what if you believe that the key freedom is the freedom to use whatever natural (ie. not other people's labor) resources you want? Then the fence becomes a violation of freedom. As long as there are multiple people who want to use the same resource it's necessary for all but one of the people to be blocked. Is it the first one to get to that particular resource that gets lucky? Is it the first one to build a fence around the area of nature that produces the resource? Does it depend on who has not taken their fair share of nature's production yet? Unless you can justify your theory as to what the "just coercion" is, then you have to accept that your theory is no better than anyone else's.

Economic Left/Right: 0.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.21

Not worth much to me. For instance, if I believe abortion is always murder the test aligns me as authoritarian/right. I don't believe that stance is authoritarian because I see it as defending a person who can't defend their self rather than a protection of an individual's(the mother) rights. So what makes this test unreliable is that the test maker aligns answers with views different than the test taker intended the answer to mean.
