What's Philosophy Do You Follow? (Quiz)
« on: January 05, 2009, 04:29:07 pm »
So I found this philosophy quiz after clicking a link on Brandonazz's profile, which lead to his blog, which lead to me looking up this quiz, and it seems pretty interesting. Unsurprisingly, I turned out to be a selfish bastard...sorta. The quiz is two pages long and shouldn't take you much time.
http://quizfarm.com/quizzes/new/arocoun/what-philosophy-do-you-follow-v103/

Anyway, here's how I scored...

You Scored as Strong Egoism

Your life is very much guided by the concept of <b>Egoism</b>: You work primarily to promote your own interests.
“I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
“I am not primarily an advocate of capitalism, but of egoism; and I am not primarily an advocate of egoism, but of reason. If one recognizes the supremacy of reason and applies it consistently, all the rest follows.”
-Ayn Rand
More info at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Arocoun

Strong Egoism 90%
Justice (Fairness) 70%
Hedonism    70%
Existentialism 55%
Kantianism    50%
Apathy 45%
Nihilism 40%
Utilitarianism 15%
Divine Command  15%

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    100%
Kantianism    75%
Utilitarianism 70%
Existentialism 60%
Justice (Fairness) 60%
Strong Egoism    45%
Apathy    25%
Nihilism    20%
Divine Command    0%

straight to hell!
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Last time I took it, I had a rough tie between existentialism and utilitarianism.

Strange, wouldn't have guessed I was closest to existentialism, and totally without apathy or strong egoism.

I'm an existentialist.

Well, I already knew that... ::)

So who here wants to discuss the Meaning?!

Pretty even distribution there.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Woo!  Justice!

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
