Ethical Litmus Test

I’m a sucker for personality profiles, political quizzes, and other similar tests
floating around the Net. I just took a cool test called The
Ethical Philosophy Selector
(Thanks to The
Nomad Tavern
). It ranks your similarity to famous philosophers and schools of
thought. In that respect, it’s a lot like BeliefNet’s Belief-O-Matic.

Here are my rankings:

1. Aquinas (100%)

2. St. Augustine (98%)

3. Ockham (74%)

4. Kant (72%)

5. John Stuart Mill (59%)

6. Aristotle (57%)

7. Spinoza (55%)

8. Plato (50%)

9. Prescriptivism (49%)

10. Ayn Rand (46%)

11. Jeremy Bentham (44%)

12. Nel Noddings (43%)

13. Jean-Paul Sartre (32%)

14. David Hume (31%)

15. Cynics (29%)

16. Epicureans (24%)

17. Nietzsche (23%)

18. Stoics (22%)

19. Thomas Hobbes (0%)
