    My answer on this one came down to a tie breaker...

    It came down to

    Existentialism
    Your life is guided by the concept of <b>Existentialism</b>: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life. <br><br>“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.” <br>“It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.” <br>--Jean-Paul Sartre <br><br>“It is man's natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.” <br>--Blaise Pascal

    (not surprising)

    and

    HedonismYour life is guided by the principles of <b>Hedonism</b>: You believe that pleasure is a great, or the greatest, good; and you try to enjoy life’s pleasures as much as you can. <br><br>“Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die!”

    To think--some religious guy actually scored higher as a hedonist than I!!

    You Scored as Existentialism

    I think taking the time to fill out the quiz means your level of apathy is >0...

    I remember a time when I had every answer.

    God what a insufferable prick I was.

    Now all I really know is..................?

    Your guess is as good as mine.

    And the the discussion is the entire point of all this, I think?
