    Anyone care to explain.

    Skeptic

    42 optimism, 42 faith, and 50 logic!
    The skeptic constantly lives in a state of denial - everything is false until proven otherwise. Skeptics refuse to follow religion, since it relies on theories that cannot be proven true or false. Likewise, they refuse to believe in most scientific research, since logic is viewed as an inadequate measure of truth (Just because A = B, and B = C, there's no proof that A = C). Although they can sometimes be depressing to talk to, skeptics are vital to scientific advancements, since they constantly look for problems with new theories.

    Famous skeptics include: David Hume, Rene Descartes.

    The opposite of Skepticism is Optimism.

    result for The What's Your Philosophy? Test ...

    Rationalist
    56 optimism, 48 faith, and 63 logic!

    Rationalism is the most scientific of the philosophies. No matter how bizarre something may seem, rationalists will always discount the supernatural. To them, there is no such thing as a mystical, otherworldly explanation for anything, no exceptions. Everything, no matter how strange, can be proven through science sooner or later. If something is genuine, there is an explanation for it.

    Famous rationalists include: Baruch Spinoza.

    The opposite of Rationalism is Existentialism.

    Regressionist
    54 optimism, 40 faith, and 65 logic!
    Regressionists believe that every question must have an answer, and anything that cannot be answered must not be true. Thus, their search for truth is based around asking the question "Why?" rather than "How?". They're also the most annoying type to have a conversation with. "It's hot today." "Why?" "Because there's no clouds blocking the sun, and no wind to create a breeze." "Why?" "Because the vapors in the air haven't condensed enough to form clouds, and the wind patterns haven't shifted to our region." "Why?" And so on. Famous regressionists include: Paul Feyerabend. The opposite of Regressionism is Spiritualism.

    I got the same result, and I'm also wondering what it means. As far as I can make out, in my case it probably means not being able to make sense of anything. I sit in a meeting and wonder "Why am I here anyway?" "Why does one have to sit at meetings? What purpose does it serve?" I write a paper and wonder, "Why am I doing this anyway?" "Why was it decided that people have to write in a certain way for a piece of writing to be called a paper?". I do ask a lot of "why's".

    But I love the description. It sounds just like me.

    They're also the most annoying type to have a conversation with. "It's hot today." "Why?" "Because there's no clouds blocking the sun, and no wind to create a breeze." "Why?" "Because the vapors in the air haven't condensed enough to form clouds, and the wind patterns haven't shifted to our region." "Why?" And so on.
    I like my confused state, but I'm sure others feel like pulling their hair out when they're with me, and I love watching that too !

    Edit: I wonder if "I'm not sure" answers were counted for something, or discarded, since that was my response for most of them.
