I just read all the answers. Do you think there would be anyone willing to offer some of them here? Not! Whew. Thought I recognized a few people I know in RL.

I wonder why the test indicates that you two are not so adventurous. How do you think they arrived at that through your answers?
I do see you as being more pragmatic than I, sciski.
I'm a jaded cynic at heart.
I think if we paired up, you would be the nice friendly sunny one, and I'd be the grouchytastic one making a dark cloud in the corner.
And yes, analysing the test results themselves was interesting!
For some reason, putting Robin ahead of the Sheriff is indicative of adventurousness. Perhaps because Robin truthfully acted outside of his character, whereas the Sheriff deceitfully played within the boundaries of his? Which could be indicative of my own values - that I do not mind 'deceit within bounds' as long as it's honest to someone's character, but do mind 'honesty outside bounds' because it goes against someone's character.... I think I just broke my brain.

You are fairly broadminded romantic and reasonably contented. You value kindness greatly and try to live by your ideals. You do not conceal from yourself, or from others, your strong need for security, which may be either emotional or material.
Men: Perhaps you tend to idealize women and credit them with virtues they don't possess.
I agree with this. I put way too many women on pedestals..
That was how my first and only relationship ended..
Oh yea, my order was Little John, Maid Marion, Robin Hood, Sheriff
My answer was : Little John, Maid Marion, Sheriff, Robin Hood (I ended up swapping the final two from my original answer).
You are the slightly romantic realist. You respect truth, and are broadminded and flexible. Whether you are a man or a woman you are probably a happy person. You like people and they can readily make friends with you. You are not very adventurous, but this does not bother you.
My reasoning was that Little John did nothing wrong and actually rescued Marion when she needed help.
Marion probably could have tried another plan to escape, but she sacrificed herself and was honest to Robin.
The Sheriff was just being his ratty self, and was consistent in letting them free after Marion held up her end of the bargain.
Robin, I feel sympathy for because he was extremely hurt, but yeah, that response sucked.
If you are not living a happy life, the cause is within yourself. You are a rebel with a trace of spoilt child about you. You value truth above morality, but you are reasonably tolerant of those who disagree with you.
Men: Any problems you have are not likely to be centered in sex.
Believe me I was more shocked then you are.
I mean, does this even sound like me?
You are the slightly romantic realist. You respect truth, and are broadminded and flexible. Whether you are a man or a woman you are probably a happy person. You like people and they can readily make friends with you.
Little John: Well he didnít do much but he appears to disregard any previous behaviour of the not-so-fair maid.
Maid Marion: She made her choice, wanted Robinís freedom and was prepared to go to some extreme lengths to do so but without deceit.
The Sheriff: He had something the maid wanted, he bargained, she accepted.
Robin Hood: Abuse is never justified in my mind. He can be disgusted and hurt by what she did but that never excuses calling her a slut.
Now had I been the Maid it would have turned out a little differently... I woulda ditched Robin at the first opportunity, trapped the sheriff in a compromising position and than used the blackmail money to start a new life elsewhere with the nice guy, Ďlil John
Got the slightly romantic realist one. At first was going to put Maid Marion in front of Little John which would have gotten this result lol:
You are essentially a contented person, even if you consider yourself a little superior. You are moral by your own standards, for you believe that morality is what best suits the occasion.
Men: You are sexually uninhibited, more romantic than you may appear, and more dependent on the approval of others than you care to admit.
Women: You like being a woman, you understand what love is, and frankly enjoy sex.
But then figured Little John didn't do anything that could be interpreted as wrong out of the four of them.
Little John: did nothing wrong in the story, defended someone being abused and gave them happiness (+2)
Maid Marion: went through a lot of trouble to help people out, but i suppose she could be seen as being "dirty" or whatever (+1)
Sheriff: he was just doing his frigging job, though he later decides to take advantage of a chick (lol, but she was willing! xD) (-1 still)
Robin Hood: what an asshole, someone goes through all this trouble to bail him out and he abuses them. plus, calling someone a slut in this context shows that he has more of a messed up sexual mind than the Sheriff imo....only cares about what he puts his penis into =.= (-1000)

You claim to be a realist or even a cynic, but you are more emotional, romantic, and truthful.
Women: You have been hurt in the past by men, or one man in particular, and will probably let it happen again.
Nah. And no, it won't happen again.
EDIT: Uh, in order...
Sheriff: He told Maid Marion that he would free the others, and so he did.
Maid Marion: She sacrificed herself for the others.
Little John: Well, he was nice at least.
Robin Hood: ... Ew. How ungrateful.
It's not that I agree with what the Sheriff or Maid Marion did. Is just that, in morality terms, they stayed true to their word.
