So I tried this quiz on personal philosophy and got for result 89% Hegel/Philosophic History which suprised me a lot...

Quote:
You're not right, but neither am I. You understand that the world is made up of opposing ideas, and no person is 100% correct. This is Hegel's idea on thesis (the original idea), antithesis (the opposing idea) and finally, synthesis (the truth). We're all just looking for truth in the world, and using the past to help us understand the present and the future.

@Fil Albuquerque,
Apparently 88% Kierkegaard, whom I have always considered a polysyllabic misfit; 70% Hegel, probably because of my view of history.

Nice diversion.

@neologist,
Exactly what I expected from your result. Now I am getting more scared with my result. Hegel transcends mechanics...that is unsettling for me. Wink

Your Result: Sartre / The Atheist Existentialist

77%
You can never use the excuse �that�s just the way I am,� because you think that WHO you are depends entirely on YOU. There is no god, and this means that you, and only you, are in charge. With this freedom comes an immense amount of responsibility, and it sometimes feels like a heavy burden.

54%Camus / Christian Existentialism

39%Hegel / Philosophic History

39%Henry David Thoreau

12%Soren Kierkegaard / The Aesthetic, Ethical, and Re

I tried to rate the quiz with one star for typing effort, but it wouldn't let me.

Some of the responses to the questions were very limited in scope. A majority of them didn't have the actual response I would have given so I had to compromise with something that was as close to how I would respond. But in some cases none of the responses were even close to how I would respond, so I had to just randomly pick because none of them were suiting or even close to suiting.

The test is very limited in scope but its not time consuming...perhaps next time I bring something with more depth so we can have more differentiate results. As is I agree its lacking.
