You Scored as Hedonism

Your life is guided by the principles of Hedonism: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can.

“Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!”

Hedonism

Utilitarianism    
   50%
Strong Egoism

Existentialism

I believe in... stuff. Kinda.

Well, okay, not really. Pass the grapes!
Not a winner anymore.

You know what's funny?  That quote is so often used by Hedonists, despite the fact that it was originally from the Bible, as "The fool who says 'Eat, drink, and be merry, for tommorrow we die!'"

  Jean-Paul Sartre

“It is man's natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.”
  Blaise Pascal

And isn't it funny that all these Hedonists have a 0% in Divine Command?

Just because you're a hedonist doesn't mean you're an atheist (although judging from these trends, yes). Also, simply because the Bible is a religious document doesn't mean that it doesn't contain stuff that anyone can quote/use, regardless of their religion.


Not too many other selfish bastards like me/kaizer out there. Although, utilitarianism seems to be a bit lower in general that strong egotism.
They're collectible! Sorta...

and we're saying he's not a fool. Simple.

Not believing in an afterlife certainly does place more importance of enjoying this life though.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Hey, could you use another color for Divine Command?  All the religious types are just about invisible.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I scored Utilitarianism at 80% and Justice at 75%.

You have probably read these descriptions a half dozen times before getting to this post. :P
