Meh. :-\



You Scored as Apathy

Your life is marked by quite a bit of <b>apathy</b>: You don’t seem to care much about the direction of your own life, much less society in general. <br><br>I <i>would</i> 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. <br><br>“Eh, who cares?” <br>--Myself, just now... <br><br>More info at <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Arocoun">Arocoun's Wikipedia User Page...</a>

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.

I wonder if I'd get a higher Nihilism score if I retook it now that I've read Call of Cthullhu.

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!”

Kings 2:23-24 --- The Holy Bible
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

Or you can read Catcher in the Rye for a higher Existentialism score!

This is all very interesting. Political views seem to line up nicely with respective philosophies. The Strong Egoists are libertarian, the Divine Commanders are conservative (mostly), the nihilist is anarcho-socialist, and the majority of the Existential Hedonists are liberal.

The quiz was just made by some random person, hard to make anything like this balanced unless you have experience in such things.  And more questions mean more accuracy, and this was really short.
