My result was very similar. I was frankly astonished at my low score for apathy!

I'm annoyed that I can't edit the entry - I used QuizFarm's posting system as an experiment - as I'd have liked to put this behind a cut.

I'm not surprised, and reassured, that you had a similar result; and really, I'm not surprised that you had a low score for apathy.

I got existentialism as well. I'm not sure I actually understand existentialism, so that was interesting.

Also interesting that I got 20% for Divine Command. To date, I have yet to recieve any commands from a divinity.

I've never studied it, though superficially and with little reflection I'd agree with the Sartre comment above.

Me too - though only at 70%.
(There were a lot of 50%s in my list...)

I do like existentialist films, so I'm not too surprised :-)

I should read more philosophy. If I could live the life of an all-round generalist, and have the concentration to pursue each area with an intense focus for short periods each day, I would be happy.
