HT: John Gruber. (Incidentally, I got 20/20, which means I get at least a brief moment to glory over the aesthetically astute John Gruber.)
Well, apparently, my inner child needs Paxil or something. How about yours?
Your Inner Child Is Sad
You're a very sensitive soul.
You haven't grown that thick skin that most adults have.
Easily hurt, you tend to retreat to your comfort zone.
You don't let many people in - unless you've trusted them for a long time.
Hat tip goes to Michael.
Interesting; several years ago when I took this same quiz, I was Japan. Now I'm Germany. What country are you?
Which Country of the World are You?
Germany - Despite a controversial recent history, it has had a tough and powerful history. A modern-day technological and cultural beacon, it is still target to stereotypes and antiquited thoughts.

|Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"|
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!
Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out
Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking
What turns you off: fighting and conflict
Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love
That works for me, for the most part, save for conflict. I love debate, everyone knows that.
I did another for good measure:

So what are y'alls results on these?
Your Social Dysfunction:
You're a happy person - you have a good amount of self-esteem, and are socially healthy. While this isn't a social dysfunction per se, you're definitely not normal. Consider yourself lucky: you walk that fine line between 'normal' and being outright narcissistic. You're rare - which is something else to be happy about.

I took CNET's Cell Phone Geek quiz. Here's what it said:
Cell phone geek
Face it—you're a cell phone geek. On one hand, it's great that you take the time to know about the technology as you can dispense valuable advice to friends and family. But cell phones aren't the be-all and end-all of human existence, and there's more to life than knowing the differences between Motorola and Nokia. Also, remember that not everyone shares your passion, so unless you're with your fellow geeks, keep your diatribes to yourself.
I have actually expounded on the differences of CDMA/GSM and Motorola/Nokia before, so I guess the shoe fits. How about all of you?
You are 'Latin'. Even among obsolete skills, the
tongue of the ancient Romans is a real
anachronism. With its profusion of different
cases and conjugations, Latin is more than a
language; it is a whole different way of
thinking about things. You are very classy, meaning that you value the
classics. You value old things, good things
which have stood the test of time. You value
things which have been proven worthy and
valuable, even if no one else these days sees
them that way. Your life is touched by a
certain 'pietas', or piety; perhaps you are
even a Stoic. Nonetheless, you have a certain
fascination with the grotesque and the profane.
Also, the modern world rejects you like a bad
transplant. Your problem is that Latin has
been obsolete for a long time.
What obsolete skill are you?

According to this unusually thoughtful, well-done theology survey, I am placed in the same school of thought as Karl Barth. Who would have thunk? Yeah, I thought so, and you probably did too. Notice it is virtually a dead heat between Neo-Orthodoxy (Lewis, Barth) and Reformed Evangelicalism (Calvin, Edwards), which of course fits with being Barthian. I'm not sure how Wesleyanism came in third when I gave good, solid Calvinist answers to a number of questions, but I don't really mind that. Notice that Fundamentalism scores much lower, as do the various forms of liberalism.
It is interesting to find myself being labeled neo-orthodox in a poll today, since I was just talking about my affinity with the neo-orthodox thinkers in my application for SCF, which I almost finished last night.
Not surprisingly, Catholicism is also low on my profile, which I point out as probably correct, since I answered in the negative on the authority of the pope, the authority of the ecumenical councils, the centrality of Mary and the key of communion to worship (but, let my Catholic friends rest assured, I'm fairly certain that it was only those four questions that determined my Catholicity and therefore one should not read so much into the fact that my liberal and Catholic scores came out the same). Had it been listed, I might have come out with a fairly good Eastern Orthodox score, given that my answers pointed to Christocentrism and I did not answer completely iconoclastically.
| You scored as Neo orthodox. You are neo-orthodox. You reject the human-centredness and scepticism of liberal theology, but neither do you go to the other extreme and make the Bible the central issue for faith. You believe that Christ is God's most important revelation to humanity, and the Trinity is hugely important in your theology. The Bible is also important because it points us to the revelation of Christ. You are influenced by Karl Barth and P T Forsyth.|

This web poll says I am a fundamentalist and that I believe that science has brought on corruption of society. Oddly enough, I answered favorably to virtually every question about science, save for the one that evolution has helped us become more spiritual (as a whole, I think regardless of one's position concerning evolutionary theory, it is hard to assert that it has made the world more spiritual). I took the quiz twice, actually; the first time it said I was a “cultural creative” (which it reported as being “spiritual, but not religious”). I went back through because I realized I'd marked a few wrong, and also tried to read their questions a bit more closely.
As a whole, I think the poll is flawed. While I've been accused of being a fundamentalist, I generally do not fit well in true fundamentalist circles. I've come to the conclusion I am not a fundamentalist at all. I'm certainly not a post-modernist though, I'm more of about anything than a po-mo. I tend to see post-modernism as the enemy of rational thought — scientific, religious and philosophical. I do probably fit somewhat into the Romanticists, though.
I think the big problem here is that the quiz had questions such as whether religious texts should be taken symbolically, wherein the meaning is somewhat ambiguous. Sure, they are filled with symbols and even literal parts can have a secondary interpretation that is symbolic. On the other hand, I suspected what the author meant was “scriptures should be read only as mythological truths,” to which I had to answer in disagreement. In truth, then, despite this poll's support for varying levels of agreeing and disagreeing on statements, it really is rather polar. When I answered that statement as being somewhat true, I was a cultural creative; when I answered it as false, I was a fundamentalist. There is no middle ground in the poll, which is too bad, because it could have been interesting.
I'm not a polar person. I agree with fundamentalists on many things, but I reject the anti-intellectualism that I am seeing in the fundamentalist movement presently. For that matter, not only anti-intellectual, but just generally anti-all-kinds-of-things attitude, from Harry Potter to the Da Vinci Code. I find myself attracted most closely to the neo-Orthodox theologians such as C.S. Lewis, and more recently, Karl Barth (from what I've read of him thus far). I neither reject rationality nor revelation, but believe that both will ultimately be true. Seek truth knowing that there can be no conflict between God and truth.
| You scored as Fundamentalist. Fundamentalism represents a movement in opposition to Modernism, stressing the highest importance on foundational religious tradition. Science has brought on corruption of society. God is real and is watching. Scripture leaves little room for interpretation; man is God’s creation. About a quarter of the population in the U.S. is classified as Fundamentalist.|
