Take my tri-variable personality test … find out of you’re a: Scientist, Philosopher … or an Artist.

Before I offer you the link to my (first) personality test, you must gave upon my interpretation of … my (tied for #1) favorite philosopher; Ludwig Wittgenstein:

Thanks to the software over at okquizzie.com, I’ve been able to begin to experiment with personality tests.

The old, standard personality tests … like the MB (myers-briggs), or even the ENNEAGRAM, are great for getting a grip on what motivates you. They even have some scientific validity.

My tests, though, tend to aim at more subjective variables; often more esoteric.

Each question in this quiz is, in actuality, a statement or assertion made by a prominent philosopher.Here’s the link:

Some of the philosophical minds I chose from include, from left to right:

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Bertand Russell, Nietszche … and others.

The quotes above don’t really go deep into a differentation of their viewpoints. Suffice it to say, there is/was some overlap between their perspectives … but, essentially, all philosopher’s (the great one’s) were polemics.

Thus, they often made it a point to disagree.

A favorite quote of mine, as I recall it off the top of my head … was from Rousseau:

“To turn a Philosopher into a religious man, one need only put him in a room full of atheists.”

One thought on “Take my tri-variable personality test … find out of you’re a: Scientist, Philosopher … or an Artist.

  1. I scored highest for philosopher 45 and then 40 for
    scientist. I am amazed, since the concepts are
    so abstract, that this is a highly accurate picture of
    me as I would view myself! I am impressed with
    the novelty and deeply thought out questions in this test.
