What makes someone a person on the Left?

One thing I’ve noticed when engaging on this sub is that when I (and others) do mention that I share some views of those on the Left (namely BLM, free at use Healthcare, and better gun background checks) Trump Supporters then say I am either a leftist, or a Democrat. Even when I clarify that I am in the middle and even agree with views on the Right as well as disagree with certain views on both sides they will still say I am a leftist/Democrat.

So what makes someone a person on the left? Or in other words, how do you determine that someone is on the Left?
