Politics is the study of decision-making power (who's got it, and who hasn't) at the inter-social and societal levels.
As well being influenced by these weighty matters, politics is also a social activity, and as such it is subject to the whims of fashion as any other.

 Political compass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A political compass or political diamond is a multi-axis model used to label or organize political thought on several dimensions.
The underlying principle of the Political Compass is that political views may be measured along two separate and independent axes.
The other axis (Authoritarian-Libertarian) purports to measure one's political opinions in a "Social" (as distinct from "Economic") sense, regarding a view of the appropriate amount of "personal freedom": "Libertarianism" is defined as the belief that personal freedom should be maximized, while "Authoritarianism" is defined as the belief that authority and tradition should be obeyed.

 Talk:Political compass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
So unless these people have actually inputted their own data (and who's to know whether the Political Compass algorithm gets the right answer, based on the data it receives, by the way?) I think it is difficult to take seriously as encyclopaedia-quality data.
The Political Compass algorithm is a constant of the universe around which all other things are based or judged.
My point is that we can assume that the Political compass is true and compare other things to it, or we perch the vantage point for our reality on some other object in order to compare the Political compass.

The original political meanings of ‘left’ and ‘right’ have changed since their origin in the French estates general in 1789.
Perhaps this is because the idea of a political circle is not inspired by a desire to clarify matters but by a dogmatic delight in a paradox that seems to make all extreme political views inherently absurd.

 The New Political Compass by Paul Ray
Today’s politics is failing to deal with some of the most important issues of our time, and everyone knows it.
The easiest way to describe this emerging political constituency is to say that they are at 90 degree angles to both the liberal Left and the social conservative Right, and they are directly opposed to big business conservatism.
The real “juice” in progressive politics is no longer with the class and union and rural-urban struggles of the early 1900s; instead, the growing edge is in the feminist, ecological, anti-globalization, pro-civil-rights, pro-peace, pro-health-care, pro-education, pro-natural/organic and even pro-spiritual movements that together make up the New Progressives.

The Political Compass test seems to be doing the rounds again, and Tim Lambert's nifty graph of where various blogs stand has inspired me to do a similar one for New Zealand bloggers.
Highlights: Swindells' floundering when asked "where are the WMD", trying desperately to spin the NBR poll about NZer's attitudes to America, and saying that the Senate's passing of the $87 billion package for Iraq showed the depth of their support for the president.
As for examples of politics being grounded in psychological assumptions, I can think of no better example than the Right's persistent belief that we are (and ought to be) rational utility maximisers, despite the existence of a large body of experimental data to the contrary.

 PERC Volunteer News - Title
The site was created out of a belief that the old political formula of left versus right, represented by a single horizontal line running from liberal, on the left end, to conservative, on the right end, was an inadequate model for determining people’s actual, real-life political beliefs.
So, the Political Compass’ creators added a vertical line to the horizontal one, distinguishing between liberal and conservative economic policies along the horizontal axis, and authoritarian and libertarian social policies along the vertical axis.
