    1. apparently!
      I am fairly religious although I rarely blather about it in this medium. And yeah, I suppose “absolutist” fits. Self-control and asceticism are wonderful ideals to me, I’m just such a weak pudgy bastard that I can’t manage them generally, so I tend not to criticize others.
      It’s odd how revealing that thing was.

      1. Re: apparently!
        Yeah, I’ve occasionally been very surprised by how few questions it takes to get a strong overall picture of my personality.
        The Briggs Meyer test is a prime example of this.

      2. Re: apparently!
        religious? quite a surprise to me. But I expect you have more personally-derived beliefs, rather than received? If you are not interested in answering that sort of question, I understand.
        Re: “I’m a weak pudgy bastard…” I dunno, I’ve always felt that a moral ideal should be at least theoretically realizable by mammals… absolutism equals defeatism. But I see the value in having a high standard.

  3. Honk honk!
    I got Aquinas 100%, Spinoza (92%), Sartre (86%), Mill (83%), Kant (82%), Noddings (79%), Aristotle & Bentham at 76%, Epicureans at 74% and Stoics at 72%. =) I’d say it’s pretty accurate for me. I am a pretty moral person, but I also strongly believe that one can’t change another person’s mind. I’ve been having a lot of religious inner thought recently. I have QUESTIONS. Interesting stuff, thanks, iggy =)

  4. 100% pure Kant. Sartre with a sorry ass second at 68%. Then again, there was no neo-Kantian. Although Kant’s foundations for ontology are somewhat lacking and the distinctions in the First Critique are essential to Kant’s moral philosophy, I find Kant’s arguments to the the most compelling and sensible. Then again, I also believe that intent is often the deciding factor in determining the rightness of an act. Then again, to determine intent one has to have method of determining the mental or intensional state of an agent at the time of action. I want another philosophy quiz!!!!

    I expected a much higher Nietzsche factor. And there’s way too much Rand in there for my liking…

    Okay, um, while it’s been a while, isn’t it a little nonsensical to be rated as Kantian with Mill immediately following?
    Also: I would have expected Hume to be much higher, although then again this was almost all ethics questions
    Also Also: Nieztsche can suck the fat one

    1. Re: Uh…
      That struck me as really odd too, not just with your journal; but that Kant and Mill or Kant and Bentham, for that matter would have so much overlap. I don’t think it’s possible to agree 100% with Kant and 90% with any utilitarian. One would have simultaneously hold that intent and outcome are the most important thing when evaluating right action.

    I found this interesting as mostly my views on why I choose to live the way i do is more a Calvin and Hobbes, set of reasonings. I belive in Moral Economy which strikes me as odd Hobbes is at the bottom. Aquinas doesn’t suprise me at all, as an apologetic him and I have share many views, just with a different reasoning behind them. I thought Mill would score higher for me,as well as Bentham, I’m suprised that they are that disparet in score as the questions provided didn’t seem to be able to differentiate between them. The Aristotle is about where I would have put it. Althoguht the Plato score is lower then I would have thought.
