Do you consider yourself to be Left or Right in your political views? Maybe you don't really know, but if you're interested in finding out you can do so by taking the political compass test at http://www.politicalcompass.org
The test takes about 5 - 10 minutes and asks you to make an answer choice to a variety of questions. There's no 'Don't know' or 'No opinion' option, so you have to respond to all questions positively, and it's very important to read the question properly before answering.
The answer page gives your political bias on a graph, and provides sample examples for various well known figures. I came out as minus 1.88 on the economic scale, and 0.87 on the social scale - which puts me right in the middle of Stalin, Hitler, Thatcher, Friedman and Ghandi! The nearest famous character in political opinion to me, from the given examples, appears to be Pope Benedict XVI.
