What Is Your Worldview?

Yep, that sounds like me...

(courtesy of Lorna Dee Cervantes and Barbara Jane's New Blog)


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.

What is Your World View? created with QuizFarm.com

My score:

Postmodernist 100%
Cultural Creative 88%
Existentialist 75%
Idealist 63%
Romanticist 50%
Modernist 50%
Materialist 25%
Fundamentalist 0%

Of course my second highest score was Cultural Creative--definitely a dialogic personality, or, am I just feeling schizo like Jean at Okir?:



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 can't believe my fundamentalism trounced my romanticism and materialism! Well, actually, i can. some of the language in the survey questions was a little too leading and like a good fundmentalist, i resisted...

Michael, we both have a 50% modernist weight

You 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.

Well that explains the career choice. Breaking down computer programs and systems all day has colored my view of the world. That and I am a cynical bastard. :-)

Abby, how the hell can you be a 100% postmodern and 100% materialist?

That seems impossible?

Thivai Abhor said...

Mason, you are definitely a cultural creative!

Thivai Abhor said...

Elena, I tossed in a couple of mix cds as well!

Thivai Abhor said...

Rainbow Demon, cool signature picture. Your results link isn't working--what were you?

Thivai Abhor said...

Rickenharp,

I'm not surprised that we came out with similar scores!

Anonymous said...

Ya know, I was wondering about that myself. I also notice that no one else received a ZERO in any category. I showed this to one of the Psych docs I know here and he said, quoting, " Do not ever come near my couch". HEH

Thivai Abhor said...

Actually Abby if you notice my scores, under the category of "fundamentalism" I received a 0%

I think that more than one psychiatrist could make a career from you, if they could survive the encounter... speaking of traumatic encounters, now that the Derby is over, what do you think of the next big race?

Is Giacomo a one time winner?

Rainbow Demon said...

Sorry... I was "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. Man is condemned to be free and must accept the responsibility.

Cultural Creative 88%

I'll try with the link again.
Existentialism

Thivai Abhor said...

Rainbow Demon,

100% existentialist! Interesting...

I don't like the quizzes description of Existentialist, I find existentialism to be an amazingl powerful and optimistic attempt to deal with the absurdity of life and the conclusion that this is the on chance that we get to live it (so you better make it count!)

Rainbow Demon said...

I agree with you, Thivai.
Here's some more basic background. (Although I know you're hip to the concept...)

I hope the link works this time...LOL

Peace,

I guess I had a 3-way tie going and so it asked me to choose between 3 statements and labeled me postmodernist.
