    Default What Type of Intellectual are You?

    HelloQuizzy.com: The "What Type of Intellectual are You?" Test

    My results:
    Public Intellectual
    You scored 40% empirical, 60% public, and 61% teaching-oriented


    Noble, confident, successful! You are The Public Intellectual!

    You have the enviable traits of the public intellectual. Unlike many great men and women, you are likely to be widely recognized for your contributions to popular discourse. People might admiringly drop your name in blogs on the internet or invite you to fancy cocktail parties.

    However, you may find yourself fighting to maintain the integrity of your ideas. You're very likely to be mischaracterized, politicized, or satirized by scholars and laymen alike. And you may be tempted to stick to your guns, merely out of stubbornness. But when push comes to shove, you're exactly whom thousands of liberal arts major will strive to be some day.
    Very much so. Especially considering that public intellectuals are supposed to be interested in addressing issues effecting society at large in greater depth and thus help inform public discourse. And of course I enjoy connecting with people in intellectual discussion, as my one blog helped show.

    The Lecturer

    You scored 54% empirical, 7% public, and 52% teaching-oriented

    The Lecturer
    You are The Lecturer!

    You stand on the shoulders of giants, as your fellow Lecturer-type, Isaac Newton, once said. You are eager to make an advancement in the name of science!

    You might be rather private -- more inclined to write books than present papers to an audience. But, unimpeded by celebrity, you can dedicate yourself to the cutting edge of research. You know your goal in life is to have a law with your name on it!

    The Bibliophile

    You scored 40% empirical, 17% public, and 26% teaching-oriented

    There's nothing you love more than the raw digestion of ideas. You spend your time collating the many works you've encountered into a grand enlightened whole.

    Most of the things you observe in the real world become consistent and easy to explain--a hundred different factors all add up. But because you know so many facets of the issues, you can have a hard time explaining them to other people. You may find success in a practical discipline like politics or business, where the results speak for themselves!

    The Scientist

    You scored 50% empirical, 18% public, and 32% teaching-oriented

    You are The Scientist!

    Slavishly devoted to the principle of cause and effect, you never leave an assumption untested.

    With the right resources, you can live in a paradise of experiments, happily isolated from the rest of the world.

    Some "Scientist" types love the process, while others are driven by the results. The common feature is their vigorous independence. Your fellow scientists will be your only audience, and your harshest critics. But you'll get your accolades spiritually, every time someone says "I wonder how this works?"
    Seems accurate.

    The Philosopher

    The realm of ideas is your domain, and you relish any chance to act as guide for others. You strive for order in your mental and physical life, and you get it.

    You probably write a lot and can master topics by teaching them to other people. Even if you aren't recognized in this lifetime, your writings will someday be accepted as essential.

    The Collaborator is one of the most beloved types of intellectuals. With an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, you spread your sights over a broad range of disciplines, eager to tap the knowledge of the brightest in their fields.

    Acting as a sort of honey bee to these great minds, you synthesize an eclectic array of abilities. Your name may be second on a lot of books and papers, but you'll always be first in the hearts of your peers!

    I don't much care for any of the results. I'm embarassed that they represent my result with that emotional fool, Paul Krugman.
