    What's your world view?

    Saw this on Steve Pavlinas weblog. http://quizfarm.com/test.php?q_id=23320

    Me:
    You scored as Idealist.

    Idealism centers around the belief that man is moving towards something greater. An odd mix of evolutionist and spiritualist, you see the divine within man, 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

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

    OK it's better now, thanks. I had some guests for the weekend, which is why it's a bit messy.

    I never realized how narrow my living room was

    You can't use html here.

    Smudges in my glass? How the heck can you make those out?

    edit: Oh, I see them. Well.... I think they add character. So there. I'm pretty sure that's actually the tree that's just outside, anyway.

    No, those are gamecube games. That's an XBox remote on my coffee table, too. I don't own a PS2.

    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.

    You scored as Cultural Creative

    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.
