Heroes can also be people looked up to in a way that makes the observer feel they are themselves superior in some way. Hero sports persons for those into sport, conservatives for those who want to think they are in the superior class, and royalty so they got a figurehead. So people say they are royalists or support the queen, do so because if the queen is ‘better than’, then by including themselves in that in some way, means people think they belong to an upper echelon of individuals ~ part of that pyramid. In short its all about opeupmanship, and being in the winning or 'better than' group.

I completely agree with this result. I always considered myself a conservative/libertarian/centralist.

The test could use a few more dimensions, like are you a democrat, or oligarch?
Are you a military interventionist, or isolationist?
An egalitarian, or elitist?
But then, philosophically minded people tend to be more ahistorical and broadminded than John and Jane Doe. We think of nearly all the possibilities.

I could see a third dimension that focuses on federalism vs decentralization, but there ain't enough dimensions for what ya' talking about.

Gloom, I agree that more dimensions would be better, and it is probably a curse of taking a philosophical mindset that standard categorizations tend to breakdown around our worldviews (imagine that). But some of the distinctions I'd like to see made are hard to articulate, let alone score. My personal misalignment is that I think government should be both strongly redistributionist and significantly more hands off, e.g. eliminate the minimum wage and implement a basic income. Whether that's a net left or right position is not straightforward (I think of it as left, but in my experience lefties often don't).

Mack, the dimensions are just 1-10 scales, there can be as many as we want, we just can't plot them all at the same time in a way that our puny human minds can grasp. Although at some point, we wouldn't be dealing with a political compass as much as a psych profile.

That's a good dichotomy you bring up.
You can be an authoritarian or libertarian and still be a federalist or decentralist.
Myself I'm more of a decentralist myself, I think.
There's a lot of dimensions you could come up with, probably dozens, I guess the trick is finding the right balance, introducing an extra dimension to your typology when there's a need, when it's an important issue, and it can't be adequately encompassed by existing dimensions.
Anybody else have any they think should be on the test?

Yes it's very subjective, issues matter to some individuals and societies more than others, and so the others get ignored, or somewhat artificially and arbitrarily lumped in with issues we're more cognizant of.
