For some time I've been considering whether it could be possible to create some kind of a "mind fingerprint", using a decent number of Yes/No questions.

There are lots of these on the web, e.g.
http://www.politicalcompass.org/

Some of the questions are unanswerable for a voluntaryist, but nevertheless it scored me 81.5% libertarian-leaning and 41.2% rightist-leaning.

1. Is it right for people with guns to kindnap and lock up someone who has non-approved vegetation in their pockets?

2. Is it right for people to forcibly take your money to operate a police force that claims to protect you from people who would forcibly take your money?

3. If 51% of people voted to legalize rape, would that be OK?

That ought to separate out the statists from the voluntarists.

Indeed, and it is much less fun than I thought.  I'll make the test one day, though.

I couldn't take the test because it has stupid questions like, "If economic globalisation is inevitable, it should primarily serve humanity rather than the interests of trans-national corporations." The answer is, of course, that the interests of corporations align with humanity in a free market environment.

I said right libertarian based on the site's description of the left-right axis as right=free market.

You have four choices. If the two extreme ones don't appeal to you, pick one from the middle. Those two are scored the same. Another statement on the test says that the interests of corporations align with that of individuals. You can strongly agree to that one.
