You scored as Idealist. Idealism centers around the belief that we are moving towards something greater. An odd mix of evolutionist and spiritualist, you see the divine within ourselves, waiting to emerge over time. Many religious traditions express how the divine spirit lost its identity, thus creating our world of turmoil, but in time it will find itself and all things will again become one.

This was an odd one. The questions were phrased in such a way that I kept answering "strongly agree" to questions that seemed to be phrased to be opposites. I don't know what to make of this.

You scored as Postmodernist.

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.

It works for me.

THE WORD OF GOD IS THE CREATION WE BEHOLD and it is in this word, which no human invention can counterfeit or alter, that God speaketh universally to man.

Human language is local and changeable, and is therefore incapable of being used as the means of unchangeable and universal information.

—Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason

I'm a cultural creative--always in the avant garde.."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"

I'm a cultural creative, but i first had to do a tie breaker with i'm a postmodernist, which I'm sure i'm not though maybe i just passed through that stage (hence the exaggerated negative energy), as the cc are supposedly the newest group.

Loner, Paine: "Human language is local and changeable, and is therefore incapable of being used as the means of unchangeable and universal information"

-well, i understand Paine's words perfectly; compared to the styles, the art, the fashion, the menus of his times, his words have a rather solid permanency. They are the kinds of signs that change very slowly, especially once they are written down. And they can communicate universal truths, or else I would not be able to have this conversation with old Paine, which is not to say either of us has it right.

in the beginning was the word; but more important than the specific word - which i believe sounded something like aardvark - more important than differences in language, is that we all have language and we discover the universal (never completely) when we become aware of this and begin thematizing this fact in our own particular traditions.

This is just silly. What in the world does "We surrender, please spare us." mean as an answer to a quiz? As if surrender would be tolerated.

PS - Cultural creative. They'll pay for that.
