Same here.
I'm not sure how I ended up so much on the left actually, considering I often agree with French centrist candidates when it comes to economic policies. Possibly some kind of bias in the way the questions are worded.

I got -8.38 economic and -5.38 social. In reality, I'm probably as bit more authoritarian than that on social, but the economic is probably about right.

I'm not sure it's scientifically valid. I suspect cultural biases, as well as linguistic biases. Not to mention religious biases in what constitutes the norm. Protestants are "naturally" more right-leaning, whereas Catholics and Muslims believe in supporting those in need. I'm obviously oversimplifying, but yeah, I'm pretty sure the test is kind of fake news.

It's true. My answers are mostly Catholic answers, with a little bit not so Catholic mixed in for the same sex marriage stuff, but mostly Catholic.

Yup, and this is why I say France is still very influenced by Catholicism, even if most people don't care about the "supernatural" aspects of religion these days. Philosophically speaking, the equality/fraternity part definitely stem from religion.

Well, I think I'm legitimately on the left, but not the left as it is understood in America (and perhaps the world today). I'm almost as opposed to neoliberals as I am to conservatives, but I think I'm pretty close to a classic liberal, maybe in the vein of FDR and LBJ.
