Cultural Creative
Not sure what this told me about What is (my) World View?

Except that my results were :

You scored as Cultural Creative.
Cultural Creatives are probably the newest group to enter this realm. You are a modern thinker who tends to shy away from organized religion but still feels as if there is something greater than ourselves. You are very spiritual, even if you are not religious. Life has a meaning outside of the rational.

Cultural Creative 94%
Idealist 56%
Modernist 50%
Postmodernist 38%
Existentialist 31%
Materialist 25%
Romanticist 25%
Fundamentalist 6%

The confusing part was the tie at 25% for Materialist and Romantic. If I was truly Romantic, wouldn't the only thing I'd need be paper, pen, and a sharp knife to spill my blood? That doesn't sound equally materialistic, does it?

Taking the cue, that Romanticism and love are all just illnesses/hot flashes anyway, I headed off for additional professionally based analysis and found that Romantics are just basically your vanilla depressives. My scores at What mental disease do YOU have? resulted in the following:

You scored as Unipolar Depression.
Congratulations! You are depressed! You know just how it feels to bear all the world's burdens, and the value of a 19-hour night's sleep. And you really hate that circle-guy thing on your Zoloft pill packets.

Unipolar Depression 92%
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder 67%
Borderline Personality Disorder 50%
Antisocial Personality Disorder 42%
Eating Disorders 42%

A nice pint of Arrogant Bastard Ale is called for. I shall imbibe and then deal with my World View Mental Disease.
As my old world aunts used to say, "Stop with the thinking; it only gives you complexes."

Funny. I had you pegged as an Idealist with eating disorders.
These meme things are always wrong...
Sinking into memedoom here. Are memes just blather to disguise a lack of originality? Or are they lifelines thrown out to connect blogs into some self-defined archipelago of mutual interest?
Hmm - I'm a "cultural creative" too, with "Post-modernist" and "materialist" tied at second. I guess I'm no different from anyone else in my generation! As that sinks in, I hardly need to take the "mental illness" test - I feel depression coming on as I type.
my conglomeration of Existentialist, Postmodernist,
Modernist, Materialist, and Cultural Creative (all above 50%) clearly reflects my confusion in relation to everything...some of those questions were...well...
