Quiz: What’s Your World View - Take II.

***Dave did it twice so I figured I should too…

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. Mankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.

And, like ***Dave, I’m relatively consistent to the last time, just more so.

  1. Mine required a tie-breaking question and in the end I scored as Materialist:   

    Materialism stresses the essence of fundamental particles. Everything that exists is purely physical matter and there is no special force that holds life together. You believe that anything can be explained by breaking it up into its pieces. i.e. the big picture can be understood by its smaller elements.

  2. Postmodernism is the belief in complete open interpretation. You see the universe as a collection of information with varying ways of putting it together. There is no absolute truth for you; even the most hardened facts are open to interpretation. Meaning relies on context and even the language you use to describe things should be subject to analysis.

    Sure, it’s an amusing little game but many of the Agree or Disagree pre-supposed an acceptance of something or other that I didn’t agree with.
    Like …
    # Scriptures should, at times, be open to symbolic interpretation.
    * If I answer Yes or No it assumes scriptures are worth consideration of being interpreted. There was no option for ‘It’s all bullshit’.
    # Religions have lost their focus and should be returned to their founding principles.
    *A Yes or No pre-supposes Religion was or is a good thing.
    # The majority of religious scripture should be taken literally.
    *There was no option for ‘It’s all bullshit’.
    # It is humanity’s responsibility to progress.
    *I don’t think it has anything to do with responsibility – there’s progress and regress. I’d like to think we’re progressing.
    # If given free range, humans will find their own place in the universe.
    *I thought I already occupied my space.

    As I said, it was amusing but … smile

  5. I like the part “Mankind is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.”

    But sheeet, it struggles not to!

    I scored Existenialist too, much like Les, but with one major difference, I score highly on cultural creativity.

    What the heck does that mean?

  6. How about that the questions themselves were open to way too much interperetation?  I mean, half of them I thought, “well, that depends…”
