Upon further analysis…

Posted: February 27, 2007 in meme

I find it amusing that, according to the personality test that I posted in the last entry, I scored the same (63%) on “religious” and “hedonism”. I clicked on the hyperlinked definitions for each category, and this is what they have to say (I bolded those things that I particularly agree with):

Hedonism: willing to break the law if the monetary benefit is great enough, likes tattoos, likes strip clubs, prone to substance abuse, prone to shoplifting, thinks marijuana should be legalized, not opposed to breaking laws, promiscuous, prone to cheat in relationships, kinky, likes to dress provocatively, believes pleasure should play a central role in life, can be crude, believes religion is foolish (author’s note: um, then why the same score on “religious”?), does not worry about consequences of actions, addictive tendencies, more a night person than a day person, erotic, more likely to have been on anti-depressants, gets attention through negative behavior, reckless with money, prone to nihilism (author’s note: I had to look that up, it means 1. total rejection of established laws and institutions. 2. anarchy, terrorism, or other revolutionary activity), unpredictable, self destructive

Religious: closest confident is a Higher Power, has more belief than doubt, prefers to let religion not themself decide the meaning of their life, opposed to strip clubs (author’s note: HAH!), believes that life is meaningful, reveres holidays and traditions, considers themself very spiritual, more likely to be politically conservative, opposed to euthanasia, fears being corrupt or evil, old fashioned, thinks abortion should be outlawed, has faith things will work out, would sacrifice their life for a good enough cause, caring, honest, generous, prude, modest, drawn to public service, purposeful

Apparently, I am conflicted and I didn’t even know it.
