I don't know what the quadrant I was in was called (and then I closed the thing, so I couldn't check) but it was in the bottom left-hand corner.

Very interesting.  

Economic Left/Right: -1.88
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.72

I don't totally understand it, and I'll admit that I wasn't totally honest on all the questions only because my stance on several things is so much more nuanced, but that's how it is with all those things.  I'm surprised, though, to end up on the left of anything, particularly KM!  ;D

[edit:  I took it again, and I think this more accurately reflects where I feel I lie: 

Economic Left/Right: -1.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -0.51

Still not totally sure what that means, but it "feels" right, if you know what I mean.  I know it's not a big difference, but to me it is. 

Oh, by the way, I'm moving this to the Three Broomsticks, where I think it's more appropo]

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: -2.25
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.54

I was Authoritarian Left.  I'm absolutely shocked to be considered "left" and I think I'm offended that my dot is really close to Jaques Chirac.   :o

On the other hand, this quiz does take into consideration my moral opinions, but NOT my opinions on the role of government, which lend my political offiliations to be much more to the right, I think, and ... well, I'm not sure if they'd be more or less authoritarian, actually.  I'm not at all sure.

Okay, I took it again.

Your political compass
Economic Left/Right: 0.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: 1.54

Weird.  Dead center on the economic scale.  How bizarre.

Well that's not a surprise, libertarian left, I knew that. I was surprised they put Chirac on the left, he is on the right, why did they put him on the left?? ???
