Your political compass

Here's a benchmark or two.

Surprised.

I expected myself to be more on the right.


Evidently our political beliefs are the same. You would have thunk it.

Like any consensus, it is not your answer so much as the questions that are put forward. I could pose questions and your answers will make black look white, so what is the point of such a consensus?

Eric
I would wholly agree as I come out left of centre
Not so
However I answered each and every question as honestly as I could
even though there were those for which I would rather have abstained
as I neither agreed nor disagreed with the proposition as so worded.
OK
Back to work

Dictionary: consensus (kən-sĕn'səs)

n.
An opinion or position reached by a group as a whole: “Among political women . . . there is a clear consensus about the problems women candidates have traditionally faced” (Wendy Kaminer). See Usage Note at redundancy.
General agreement or accord: government by consensus.

"Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful" - Seneca

Try to look at it this way and it does not mean woman;

Consensus has two common meanings. One is a general agreement among the members of a given group or community, each of which exercises some discretion in decision making and follow-up action. The other is as a theory and practice of getting such agreements (for information on the practice of achieving formal consensus, see consensus decision-making).

Achieving consensus requires serious treatment of every group member's considered opinion. Once a decision is made it is important to trust in members' discretion in follow-up action. In the ideal case, those who wish to take up some action want to hear those who oppose it, because they count on the fact that the ensuing debate will improve the consensus. In theory, action without resolution of considered opposition will be rare and done with attention to minimize damage to relationships.

ERIC.

Political philosophy 101...

FWIW, here is a simple-minded way of looking at your political phylosophy. Based on what you believe, where do you fit on this continuum of government control vs. personal freedom?
