Testing if images in my blogposts will appear on mastodon
Been a while since I took an e-test, but this one looked interesting (h/t Plutonick)
I’m a bit surprised myself. I was always good in vocabulary and I knew I was good in English, but this was unexpected. Maybe I just got the easy questions?
Heh, once mor, my personality is calculated correctly 🙂
You Are An ENTP – The Visionary [1. What’s Your Personality Type?]
- You are charming, outgoing, friendly. You make a good first impression.
- You possess good negotiating skills and can convince anyone of anything.
- Happy to be the center of attention, you love to tell stories and show off.
- You’re very clever, but not disciplined enough to do well in structured environments.
- In love, you see everything as a grand adventure. You enjoy taking risks for love.
- And if things don’t work out, you’re usually not too much worse for the wear!
- You would make a great entrepreneur, marketing executive, or actor.
- At work, you need a lot of freedom to pursue your own path and vision.
- How you see yourself: Analytical, creative, and peaceful
- When other people don’t get you, they see you as: Detached, wishy-washy, and superficial
I was just setting up some new stuff over at the ACP and I decided to have the option for users to put in their Political Orientation if they so wished. As a fan of the Political Compass, I decided to suggest that they use that to present an accurate view of it, rather than use the abstract terms of left and right or Political Parties.
I tried to follow the link from my previous post on that, in order to get a sample link but apparently they changed their website setup and the link was dead. Visiting the page informed me that they now also provide a nice personalized page for printouts but I would have to take the test again.
Why not, I thought, and dived in once again. I didn’t expect much change in a year but I did move one square to the left. I then paid the €7 required and got a nice image to put on my wall.
Recently I took this little test and the results where pretty much what I expected.
The results seem to indicate that I’m a kind of Ghandi 🙂 Just a bit more libertarianist and less to the left.
There also other interesting tidbits you can check out in there. For example, I find it very interesting how the entire political spectrum of the U.S. is on the to right quarter, with two notable Democtat exceptions (who incidentally were branded “extreme left” and had no real chance). Apparently, for the U.S. , the “left” is just anything close to the middle from the right side. Of course, this is what one would except of them, what with their irrational fear or communists.
From the Way of the Mind I discovered this little test that at first sight seemed promising. I was initially skeptic of some of the questions asked within and I was pretty certain that one could get a 100% score by answering in a very paranoid/conspiracy therist way.
I was not wrong. I received a mediocre 67 which as the site puts it, make me a
As a Learner, you’re smart enough to know better, yet you’re still not fully informed about reality. Around 15% of the population are Learners. You have the critical thinking skills to be a truly free individual, but you haven’t exercised them enough yet. From time to time, you’re still manipulated by the powers that be, although you frequently learn from those mistakes and refuse to be exploited again. You buy things because they are practical, not because they’re cool. If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, but you would still be in a state of mild disbelief about the nature of reality. You are essentially unplugged, but still untrained. With more knowledge, you could become a true free thinker.
Your architects: You have always been an independent thinker. You rebelled against your parents, schoolteachers and always chose to hang out with smart friends who weren’t necessarily that popular to the “in” crowd. Increasingly, you shape your own world by deciding what actions to take based on your own internal drive rather than what society tells you is right.
Action steps: Learn more. Educate yourself through alternative media and cutting-edge books. Read the answers below to get started.
All well and good, pretty much describes me. I was prepared to ignore the – immediately following – link to the author’s book, as it completely undermines the impartiability of the test. I continued to read though and my worries became true, although he seemed to have some very true points (like the Lying Goverment or the Federal Reserve), some of them were twisted in a way to make them seem so much worse, as in the case of the Carmine which, although it is indeed created from crushed bugs, (nothing wrong with that imho, unless you’re very squeamish) the author then goes on to try to scare people by saying:
carmine also poses the threat of causing a rare but fatal allergic reaction known as anaphylactic shock
Well, no shit, Sherlock! As in the case of every person with allergies, you’d better not go near and especially eat stuff you are allergic to. This is not a problem of Carmine but a problem of people with the allergy who should be taking care of what they are eating.
The rest of the test builds results up to more and more dubious claims as in the case of cancer and finally ADHD. In the cancer explanation, I liked the fact that he is trying to move people away from the proven medical solutions into “New Age Cure territory”, to which I want to cry a humongous “BOLLOCKS!”.
I’ve had personal experience of my mother dying from cancer after she preferred homeopathy, new age cures and all that jazz, until her Massage therapist discovered that the pain leg he’d been trying to fix for the last 6 months was an actual tumour that found the time to migrate to her lungs…BOLLOCKS I say!
And then of course he goes around the say that ADHD does not exist and it’s all made up to feed the drug industry etc. Seeing as I am a person with this annoying disorder, it is extremely irritating for me to read him claiming that it’s all due to bad nutrition. Especially since my mother was completely against all the “pop” food and she kept feeding us organic products and stuff like that (Seriously, I did not eat white bread until after she passed away). Not that I’m complaining or anything but once again this completely undermines it, at least for me.
Then, after coming just one step before claiming that all [tag]ADD[/tag] people are “just lazy and need some firm guidance“, he goes on to link to a friggin’ Scientology site which, for me at least, just completely discredited almost anything he said up to that point, excepting the ones I already knew of…
I just spent several hours looking up Mike Adams, the guy who runs this web site and dozens of others. Why? I guess because I was bored. Also, because I found a Scientology link on this web page. The whole page seems to be some sort of Dianetics/Scientology ad, so I was convinced that this Mike Adams guy was a Scientologist. Well, despite all my searching, I couldn’t make the connection, though Google did give some somewhat interesting results. The most interesting result was a page that revealed Mike Adams has incorporated all his companies in Taiwan! Now, that’s a red flag. Why didn’t he incorporate in the U.S.A., where he lives and operates his businesses? Well, let’s go further. It also turns out that he’s a known internet scammer.
Here’s the evidence:
- Mike Adams is a scammer, and he’s setting up a new, fraudulent, non-profit company to scam your tax money
- Mike Adams is selling Spam marketing software, fraudulent search engine services, and operating fraudulent “health” web sites
- Mike Adams believes AIDS is not a virus, but can be cured with water
- Mike Adams attacks a supplement company, but he gets attacked back
Lots of good information on him, if you do a google web search for “mike adams” scam (or scammer).
Please, people, don’t submit links like this.
Unfortunately I could also not find any link between Mike Adams and Scientology, although I’m positive there is one. It is a shame that he lumped this crap along with true stuff as it will lend discredit to the true.
So to all people that are extremely paranoid, take care to be paranoid on this kind of crap as well…
Since I took this test anyway:
You are The Devil
Materiality. Material Force. Material temptation; sometimes obsession
The Devil is often a great card for business success; hard work and ambition.
Perhaps the most misunderstood of all the major arcana, the Devil is not really “Satan” at all, but Pan the half-goat nature god and/or Dionysius. These are gods of pleasure and abandon, of wild behavior and unbridled desires. This is a card about ambitions; it is also synonymous with temptation and addiction. On the flip side, however, the card can be a warning to someone who is too restrained, someone who never allows themselves to get passionate or messy or wild – or ambitious. This, too, is a form of enslavement. As a person, the Devil can stand for a man of money or erotic power, aggressive, controlling, or just persuasive. This is not to say a bad man, but certainly a powerful man who is hard to resist. The important thing is to remember that any chain is freely worn. In most cases, you are enslaved only because you allow it.

You feel most appreciated for your great ideas, unusual perceptiveness, and ability to understand and communicate with people. You feel most appreciated when your partner understands your need for lots of social contact and your need to live life as spontaneously as possible.
