You Scored as Apathy
Your life is marked by quite a bit of apathy: You don’t seem to care much about the direction of your own life, much less society in general. I would find a quote or two to better describe the virtues and thoughts behind apathy, but ironically those who would espouse the concept of apathy are too apathetic to write about it. “Eh, who cares?” --Myself, just now... More info at ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Arocoun ) Arocoun's Wikipedia User Page...

Existentialism   60%
Apathy           60%
Justice (Fairness)   55%
Utilitarianism   50%
Nihilism           45%
Strong Egoism   40%
Kantianism           40%
Divine Command   30%
Hedonism       25%

I think I'll take it again, just to see how solid I am.

*EDIT* Well my top three are the same ones, it seems the others are fairly malleable.

You Scored as Existentialism
Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life. “Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.” “It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.” --Jean-Paul Sartre “It is man's natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.” --Blaise Pascal More info at ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Arocoun ) Arocoun's Wikipedia User Page...

Oh, I have no problem with Nihilism. To me it leads straight to Existentialism. Nothing has a meaning, so we must make up our own. I've also figured that the best meaning you can come up with so far is just enjoying yourself.

You Scored as Strong Egoism

90% Strong Egoism +20%
70% Existentialism -15%
60% Justice (Fairness) +10%

I think I should work to benefit myself, because no one else is going to. Most people in my life only try to affect my ability to choose for myself, and as a result I think my ability to make my own decisions has lessened. To compensate, I focus more on myself and pay less attention to other people. I don't feel like they're trying to benefit me, so I don't try to benefit them.

I also think I should focus more on achieving my goals and less on indulging in life's pleasures. If other people are trying to take my control from me, it's also my love for having fun and lazing off that's threatening to prevent me from achieving what I want in life. But however other people try to influence me, I believe that in the end, it's still me who makes all my decisions, so I deserve what I get, good or bad. I'm equally responsible for my failures and successes.

You Scored as Utilitarianism

Your life is guided by the principles of Utilitarianism: You seek the greatest good for the greatest number.

“The said truth is that it is the greatest happiness of the greatest number that is the measure of right and wrong.”
--Jeremy Bentham

“Whenever the general disposition of the people is such, that each individual regards those only of his interests which are selfish, and does not dwell on, or concern himself for, his share of the general interest, in such a state of things, good government is impossible.”
--John Stuart Mill

Looks like all my fellow Divine Commanders have left the site.  Maybe I should make a robe out of a burlap sack and start yelling at all of you.  Also, Divine Commanders would be a good name for a Dawn of War unit or a band of some sort.

Divine Command 
 90%  +10%
Justice (Fairness) 
 65% +5%
Utilitarianism 
 55%  -5%
Kantianism 
 40% +5%
Hedonism
40%  0%
Strong Egoism
25% -5%
Apathy
20% -10%
Existentialism
20% -25%
Nihilism 
 0% -5%

So the only thing that looks like a significant change is Existentialism going way down.  I think the fact that last time I took the test after midnight and this time I took it at two in the afternoon has more impact on the results than two years passing.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I don't think mine would change all that much.

Maybe a little more egoism or apathy.

Your life is guided by the concept of Fair Justice: Everyone, yourself included, should be rewarded and punished according to the help or harm they cause.

"He who does not punish evil commands it to be done."
--Leonardo da Vinci

“Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.”
--Dwight D. Eisenhower

Very accurate I think. My goal in life is to be happy, but not at the expense of others.

(What is Kantianism?)

Divine Command       95%  +50%
Kantianism              75%  +45%
Utilitarianism            65%  +15%
Justice (Fairness)    60%  -25%
Existentialism       45%  -5%
Hedonism               35%  No Change
Strong Egoism       35%  -10%
Apathy               30%  -10%
Nihilism               5%  No Change

Nothing surprising there. I think what has mostly changed is my willingness to admit that if the world would follow God's laws then it would be a better place. I am no longer ashamed to to say that.

And I know what Kantianism is now.

Have fun in Hell, guys.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Well, since Flisch* seems to think that I'm religious because I've got 10% on Divine Command, then HALLELUJAH PRAISE THE LORD
