You Scored 73% Liberal Philosopher, Congratulations!

 

Diversity! Cultural awareness! Sharing! Caring!

Congratulations, you’re a liberal philosopher! Perhaps a bit bleeding heart at times, and maybe a little too nice for your own good, you nevertheless bring a strong sense of individualism and unity to those around you. Liberating the minds of the traditionalists from their stodgy conformity, you seek to spread the good will of peace, understanding, and diversity.

 

You likely find little value in the traditions of old, and instead see them as myopic and intolerant. You are very progressive in your ideas towards race and heritage, and are probably pretty much colour blind. Which is good for you, because there’s no better way to lead than by example.

 

You are probably more sensitive to the ideas of other cultures, sometimes even at the expense of your own! But you see this as a good thing, because after all, how can diversity prosper if we cling to our own ways more tightly than to those others? It’s a big, beautiful world out there, and you just can’t wait to share it with everyone.

 

Editors Note:

Although it’s taken about twenty hours to complete (and if you calculate in all the years I’ve spent compiling this information for my own purposes a good deal longer), I’m very pleased with how this test has turned out, and even more so with the responses I’ve been getting from people. If you were wondering, I am a traditionalist, and knowing about my heritage and celebrating my customs is one of the most important aspects of my life. I’ve tried to be fair in creating a test where questions and answers account for all different backgrounds and beliefs, and from what I’ve heard so far, I didn’t do half bad.

However, regardless of what score you received, and whether or not you had fun, the greatest compliment I’ve gotten from people is that this test has made them consider their own heritage more deeply, and want to find out more about where they came from. This wasn’t a goal I had in mind when I created the test, but to hear that I’ve sparked some interest in a person’s lineage, however small, is an incredibly gratifying experience.

Whatever your score, whatever your ideas on the issues I’ve raised here, I want to sincerely thank you for spending the time to take my test, and hope that you’ve enjoyed it.

I also have a ton of resources for learning about your own history, and I’d be happy to share them with anyone who was interested.

Viel Glück und Gott Geschwindigkeit,
