    Existentialist
    53 optimism, 75 faith, and 46 logic!

    In Greek mythology, a man named Sisyphus had angered the gods during his life. When he died, he was sent to Hades, and punished by constantly having to push a boulder up a hill. Every time he reached the top, the boulder rolled back down to the bottom and he had to start over. This process repeats itself for eternity.

    That's more or less how existentialists view life. We're much like Sisyphus - struggling to push a rock up a hill, knowing that even if we succeed, it won't matter. No matter how great our achievements may be, in the end, they're completely meaningless. But like Sisyphus, we should continue living our meaningless lives, in order to defy whatever force is punishing us.

    Famous existentialists include: Albert Camus, Friedrich Nietzsche.

    The opposite of Existentialism is Rationalism.

    Rationalist

    60 optimism, 52 faith, and 73 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.


    Bad test. Most of the questions didn't have an answer that suited me.

    Can humans achieve perfection? My answer whould have been "No, perfection is subjective" if the option was available, and most questions didn't have a satisfactory option.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Don't know where I saw a faith survey, but from memory Js were more likely to be religious than Ps, except INFPs (who would've guessed they'd choose to be the anomaly).

    Optimist

    58 optimism, 63 faith, and 58 logic!

    Optimists are a dying breed in this day and age. To the optimists, the world is a positive place. Everything is inherently good, and all things will work out in the end. They believe violence will one day be replaced with logic and reason, and that all religions can coexisist peacefully. These are the people who always see the glass half full, and believe that we live in the best possible world.

    I'm actually more of a pessimistic idealist. I wonder how it measured my result, I tied in logic and optimism.
