Political alignment

pcompass.png Based on the results of the political compass test, I stratify as a social democrat, which accurately represents my world-view and general opinions. I align towards a regulated economy, however can't stress the idea that the regulations must be of as low a magnitude as possible, in order to preserve both household and business welfare at levels close to natural levels.

Within my field of study, I am an orthodox dissenter relatively close to the new Keynesian school of economics. This means that I don't believe in the axiom that markets clear on their own. My opinion is that some dead weight loss caused by government interventions is outweighed by their social effects.

In a company of people, I am altruistic and attentive, reading between the lines and observing non-verbal aspects of others. Among extroverts, I usually remain silent, however don't hesitate to talk while having something to say to the point. I have a biting sense of humor and can be critical at times, which is however outweighed by my ability to appreciate effort.

Yet, whenever there is something I want to achieve, acting through doing instead of talking is my way to go
