Here's the last ideo-political-philosophico-temperamental spectrum chart you'll ever need.

It is indeed the rare chart where Nazism is somewhere right in the middle, hovering around Cooperation and Christian Anarchism.

Who created this and why? Where did you find it?

More importantly, where is the geek code? If it belongs anywhere, it's on this diagram.

By putting them on a chart full of made-up mumbo-jumbo, the author has accurately placed all Myers-Briggs types.

May be the most useless infographic ever... good work!

The chart manages to have social democracy closer to communism than Marxist socialism is. Which is just weird.

So as an INFP with a penchant for democratic socialism and a degree in mathematics, do I take the average of these things? So, like, ideally I live in a meritocracy dictatorship? Am I doing this right?

Where did you find it?

On r/badphilosophy.

Who created this and why?

Likely it was forged somewhere in the depths of 4Chan. It eventually wound up on r/anarcho_capitalism after who knows how many cycles of Poe's Law.

Lacks precision.

the best part of this is how close ba'athism and nazism are to each other and the center of the chart, and how far apart socialism and communism are

Great. I'm a Nazi.

This is a brilliant piece of trolling. A golf clap for the anonymous sumbitch who put this fucking thing together.

The creator of the image made it just coherent enough that you can spot patterns that make sense, and yet also provides "patterns" so bizarre that you can't decide if he or she is making an incisive point, is an utter crackpot, or is just fucking with you. You have to wade into it and try to decode it before you can appreciate its utter lunacy. And forcing you to wade into it makes the final reveal burn just a smidge.

This is quality dickishness.

See, internet, this is how you fuck with people.

I call BS. I didn't see crypto-racist-anarcho-maoist anywhere on this chart.

Lacks precision.

It does have a professional white background, though.

The clipart stuff is pretty fascinating. The biohazard symbol next to "cosmopolitanism"...? In the bottom left quadrant, does that twin towers 1 and 2 thing mean anything anywhere else or is it a sui generis symbol/dare to free associate with nearby rubrics?

the top comment in the linked r/badphilosophy thread^ is basically my read of it too; comes off like a teen with incoherent ideology that skews libertarian who looked at the first paragraph of a bunch of wikis

See… I thought the point was that it was all bullshit. A reminder to maybe just be a human being for once in your miserable life.

The Radical Centrists squeezed out the Moderate Centrists? Did not see that coming.

As a mystical paleoconservative i find this odd.
