There is no "real" one dimensional political axis. You can divide everyone up any way you like and you'll still get horseshoes because the division isn't as fundamental as you thought it was.

That said, it would make a lot more sense than leftists vs. everyone else.

If you set out to organize people on a spectrum of "individualist" to "collectivist", would that really form a horseshoe/continuum? I.e. do extreme individualists really begin to look like extreme collectivists? I don't think they do in any meaningful way.

Not in terms of their individualism/collectivism, but they would in other respects. For example a capitalist individualist might have more in common with a nationalist than an anarcho-egoist
