Hell is other people

Via Roxanne:

What is Your World View?


You scored as Existentialist. Existentialism emphasizes human capability. There is no greater power interfering with life and thus it is up to us to make things happen. Sometimes considered a negative and depressing world view, your optimism towards human accomplishment is immense. Humankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.

These results are kind of surprising. I've never thought of myself as much of an Existentialist--particularly since I've been more and more interested in Taoism of late, and would expect to find (Dialectical) Materialism much higher on the list than either Existentialism or Postmodernism. Also, I am rather disappointed to see that at least a quarter of me is Fundamentalist!

Anyway, this quiz was a lot more fun than those idiotic "Which Star Wars character are you?" quizzes that people usually point me to, so I thought I'd share.

Apparently I'm an idealist. How funny - and utterly inaccurate! I'm actually a pessimist.

Methinks some element of their philosophical methodology has gone horribly Pete Tong. (Although it could have something to do with the number of neutral answers I gave - I mean, how the hell am I supposed to know if the world was better a long time ago? And how in the name of Bill can I have a definite position on our "divine" natures when I'm a bloody agnostic?)

Oh, the bamboozlement!

I am apparently a Modernist. At least the quiz gets some cred on the religion is bunk argument. That's me...

Modernism represents the thought that science and reason are all we need to carry on. Religion is unnecessary and any sort of spirituality halts progress. You believe everything has a rational explanation. 50% of Americans share your world-view.

As usual, I'm late to the party

You scored as Cultural Creative.
Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.
